And again. This will go on forever! Here's the first rosette with one more round to go.
The next round consists of 18 hexies, with 12 of one kind and 6 of the other - a total of 108 pieces.
Now I'm beginning to think about the next rosette. Maybe colors of rose and yellow and green? Sort of like those Cape Cod roses that hang over wooden fences.
Here's the back story of this quilt. We've been going to the Cape for about 19 years, so we know it very well. We rarely do tourist stuff, but this year we did a tour of an organic cranberry farm. Very interesting, and no, nobody stands in the middle of a bunch of cranberries in a bog. Last year we found the library in Provincetown. Being a retired librarian, I love going into all sorts of libraries, but this one is special. The library is built around a half-scale model of a Portuguese sailing ship.
So I thought this quilt would represent all the Cape loveliness that we like so much. Coastal colors, roses and other flowers, sunrise and sunset, scrubby trees. You get the picture.
