Here's the 4th rosette from The new hexagon millefiori quilt, by Katja Marek. This one is in colors that represent Cape Cod in the autumn, so, oranges and golds and rusts with a touch of green. Again, all done by hand in the English paper piecing technique (EPP), which is slow and time-consuming and labor intensive, but very pleasant to do while sitting on the sun porch. The colors on my monitor are pretty true to life.
Next rosette, which is a small one, will be about the ice cream parlors and taffy shops all over the Cape.

Finished! Sweet Nuttins is a lovely pattern by Adrienne Fong (aka Bellybutton Knits). Cables, lace, beads, cute little ruffle, pattern on gusset and heel and toe. Oh, my! A neat challenge and pretty socks as my reward. Click on the pics to see the beads!
