for the past few weeks I have been mostly working away on my Millefiore Quilt,
this is what I've got up on my design wall,
I wandered away from the original plan, as set out by Katja, since I wanted to make the rosettes more fully round in places,
the rosettes are quite a lot of fun, and I've even designed a few of my own, which makes me even more impressed by all the wonderful designs Katja has done!
someone asked about the way I made the paper templates. The advantage of making them yourself is that you can modify designs and make new shapes. Plus, you could make as many or as few as you need.
so this is how I do it, it is actually very simple.
I just go to a site called incompetech.com which is a free graph paper generator. You can print off graph paper of equilateral triangles in any size. Choose the .5 inch size. then, print off a stack of this paper on to 67 lb cover stock. (. Some people may need to turn off the option in Adobe's Acrobat reader "shrink to fit" which may resize the grid slightly to fit your printer's printable area.).
then, it is easy to just cut the shapes you need,
i keep all my previous shapes organized in a booklet that has clear plastic pockets,
this is the start of the rosette for May!
