Millefiore Quilt

This is the fabric I am using as the inspiration for the circle quilt of the ORBCQA. It is a Kaffe Fassett fabric called Millefiore and is in the pastel colourway. It has a 1000 colours in it or at least 11 - pastels with attitude!!!.

The colours include:a mauve, lavender, periwinkle blue, soft spring green, lemony yellow, a salmon tone, an aqua, pure pink,a purple grey, a very light grey and tiny tiny sparks of crimson. It reminds me of coloured swirled glass.

I am participating in a fabric swap hoping to get some of these colours to make the string blocks which use a lot of different fabrics.

This photo is from Hancocks Paducah online fabric store as I still have not got my camera cord fixed.

It resembles those crazy, beautiful glass beads I love so much. Can't wait to see what you do with it!
