I made the centre of this rosette when I was making my quilt, but the colours weren't just right for my quilt. I felt this rosette stood out too much, so I just kept it "for another day".
That day finally arrived and I felt inspired to finish it off and turn it into a mini quilt.
|I try out lots of possibilities before I stitch|
It took just under 3 weeks to add the outer rounds, applique it onto a dark background and hand quilt this little mini. It's ended up 20" across, and will look quite nice on my wall I think.
I can't claim to have invented this idea - it's one that I saw months ago in the facebook group. Alewives Fabrics is a shop in USA and the owner there had made this version which I've always loved.
So as you can see, there's plenty of ways to use up those left over rosettes.
