La Passacaglia - Big Rosette Finished

Wow, it's been a long time since I had anything to talk about here. But on Sunday, I finished the largest of the rosettes for my La Passacaglia project.  I think it's a good one!


I like the combination of colors in this one so much that I'm going to use them as a guide or color inspiration for the rest of the quilt.  

This rosette is about 22" across (including two finished edges). That space where it looks like a bite was taken out, that's not unfinished or an error, it's where another, smaller rosette will be joined.  In many cases, the rosettes appear to be overlapping.  The "blocks" of this quilt really do fit together like puzzle pieces.  I want to make my quilt a wall hanging for my kitchen space so need to reduce it in size from the directions in the book.  I'm planning to figure that out as I go along.

Making good progress and yes, it really looks like a puzzle and bet the putting together is tricky. You must have great patients as those will take some doing I think...love it!
