Passacaglia is a musical form dating back to the early 1600s. Lucy Boston, the renowned English patchwork artist, interpreted the style in fabric as a gift for the talented friend who played her favorite Passacaglia on the harpsichord in her ancient manor house near Cambridge.
Tilde Binger, a dear freind (friend) and Inklingoist, took one look at the Passacaglia Patchwork in Diana Boston’s book and knew she had to make one!
With Diana Boston’s permission, Tilde has prepared a pattern for a gorgeous Passacaglia Table Runner. Her interpretation of Lucy Boston’s gift is a gift to you—free, just in time for Christmas. Thank you, dear freind!
In theory, you only need four Passacaglia blocks for a table runner, but we think you will find it hard to stop making variations. Tilde is making a spectacular bed quilt with these. Aren’t they stunning?

Russ is on antibiotics and I am not feeling too great myself, so it will be a quiet holiday here. We wish you a wonderful time with family and friends!
