One Rosette Will Make a Stunning Table Topper!
This beautiful rosette is part of a quilt designed by Katja Marek. The version you see here was made by Carole Carr, who has created a series of tutorials for machine stitching the fabric shapes together (see below).
The rosette (rosette #1) is lovely on its own. Finish off the edges for a stunning table topper. Or, go ahead and make the other (full and partial) rosettes for the full quilt.
Rosette #1 by Carole Carr.
The New Hexagon – Millefiore Quilt by Katja Marek.
The quilt pattern is based on paper pieced hexies, with some of the hexies altered to create the interesting shapes in the rosettes. You’ll need Katja’s book, The New Hexagon: 52 Blocks to English Paper Piece, for basic construction information. You’ll also need paper pattern packs for each rosette in the quilt.
A sew along support group has been created on Facebook, which you can join here. You’ll also find instructions there for purchasing the paper pattern packs. The “official” quilt along took place during 2015 but you’ll find plenty of information and support there.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
