La Passacaglia Millefiori quilt, Tessellations & Vintage Stars

Early April I completed my Vintage stars top & it has met with the quilt inspector's approval. I already have an idea how this will be hand quilted but that will have to wait for the winter. 

Remember these tessellation blocks from a 2010 BOM? Well, they've been sitting around already individually quilted just waiting for the right border as I really didn't like the fabric that had been supplied.
Last month inspiration finally struck, a few patterned EPP hexagons appliqued to some shot cotton ones....
Some corner blocks from EPP fussy cut jewel shapes & some contrasting joining strips
and we had a plan to see this project on it's way to completion!

La Passacaglia 

This pattern was designed by Willyne Hammerstein & can be found in her first book Millefiori Quilts published by Quiltmania. I had been waiting for the perfect project to dip in to my Tula Pink collection & this was it -  more EPP & lots of fussy cutting..... perfect! 

I'll just let the pictures do the talking......
