Rosette # 10 The New Hexagon Millefiore Quilt Along

It's October, so it must be time for Rosette # 10.  I went searching through my pictures and I realized I hadn't taken a picture of the Rosette before it was pieced into the quilt.  Therefore, today I am sharing pictures of the rosette in the process of being quilted.

One half of the rosette is made from assorted Halloween Cotton + Steel.  I just love the ghost dresses.

The second part of the rosette has the apple fabric.  As soon as this post is done, I'm going to finish quilting this one.

I love to play with fabric with texture lines, so this is what the lions look like.

The pandas are a little more sedate with a simple outline.

A special friend that likes orange has a birthday tomorrow so I made her a little pincushion/binder clip holder.

Last post someone who is a no reply blogger asked why I filled the pincushion with walnut shells, and where you get them.  Walnut shells add a nice weight, and they won't dull your pins is the why.  The where has a few answers.  Some quilt stores carry them, but my local store didn't have any in.  A gun shop carries them for cleaning brass shells, but I found them a little expensive.  My local "Princess Auto" carries them in a very large bag for sand blasting.  So the my option was Kitty Litter made from Walnut shells.  I bought a brand called naturally fresh from Bosleys.

Linking up with Finish It Up Friday!
