Millefiori. It's Happening.

For Christmas, my husband gave me the book and paper pieces to make la passacaglia!  I totally bought it myself and he wrapped it for me.  I didn't let myself even peek into the packaging, but he looked and asked if I knew what I was getting myself into.  Admittedly the pieces are SMALL, but I am having so much fun with this quilt!  It will take forever, but choosing the fabrics for each cog is my idea of a great time.
 Seeing as it will definitely take forever, I've hung my first rosette on the wall in my sewing room. The second cog is still growing.  It grows every night after kiddo bedtime.
I'm going about each rosette one at a time.  I have a few cogitating in my brain, but I won't commit to the fabrics until I finish this cog.  I think my next just might feature some kawaii! Why not? This quilt will have so much happening in the pattern that I think it can handle a little bit of crazy in the fabrics.
