Darlene, that is going to be a cute little wall hanging.

Tanyel, if you go to www.paperpieces.com/shop/books you will see some books that show the Millefiori designs.  They are quite detailed and fabulous.

This delightful kit was gifted to me. 

It has 1/2 inch hexies that are fun to work with.  I sure wouldn't want to do any smaller.  i don't hink I will get it done for this holiday season

I carry hand projects with me to doctors' appointments, when I travel, and to the hair salon. For the longest it was just EPP. Then it was wool appliqué. Now, I'm working on some hand embroidered blocks. I once did a full sized Grandmother's flower garden quilt during my dad's 3 1/2 month stay in the hospital. Recommendation for you ladies carrying them back and forth to hospitals. Put a label, even if it's just a hospital sticker the hospital puts on a patient's band. Ask me how I know. My project bag (plastic lidded carry all) was once lost when they were moving dad from one place to another. After that the nurse had me label my bag with dad's information so it would always catch up with me.

Vilma good luck with your project. Did you notice at festival that my African EPP quilt was appliquéd down similar to what you are doing?i am familiar with patchwork of the crosses but what is millifori?

I often just slip everything into a zipper-top baggy and throw it in a big satchel I carry (as I am also the "pack mule" for all the things DH needs to take with him).  I also have a larger canvas 12" x 12" x 3" zippered bag for just EPP that I can take.  That is the one I carried when I was sitting in the chemo waiting room marking and cutting out the fabric hexies earlier in the week.

That is what I should do Cat Lady.  We don't have to go to the VA nearly as often as we used to, but it would be something easy to take with me when we do have to go. 

Comment by Cat Lady--MO on November 13, 2015 at 1:41pm

That is a lot of flowers to be appliquéd down.  Are your blocks about 6" square?

I took some papers and cut fabric to the VA when we went today for DH's appointments.  He had about an hour and a half lag time between two of them.  But when we finished the one, we went down and he checked in for the next one.  I had just started basting my fifth hexie when he was called back.  We were in the car and headed home before his last appointment was even scheduled to start.  So I did not get as far as I had hoped.  Still, that is why I have been working on my GFG forever, it passes the time at medical appointments.

I still see mine daily as it is on my dresser, but I have not gotten back into it, hopefully I will soon. Very pretty flower, Vilma!
