There is a new Inklingo shape collection for Passacaglia 2 inch (Millefiori) with bonus shapes, so you can sew even more variations of the rosettes.
PASSACAGLIA 2 INCH (MILLEFIORI QUILTS)
The new 2 inch Passacaglia shape collection (Millefiori Quilts 1) gave me the opportunity to add a few extra shapes, so we have even more options.
Just like the original shapes, the bonus shapes are perfect for fussy cutting.
The 5 diamonds in the decagon (10-sided shape) in the center of the rosettes can be replaced with a pentagon and 5 triangles.
This new shape collection gives you choices!
The other bonus Passacaglia shape does the opposite.
The bonus kite allows you to replace the pentagon and triangles of the 5-pointed stars with 5 kites. It looks great with or without fussy cutting.
SEW CROSSHAIR TO CROSSHAIR BY MACHINE
Another big reason that quilters asked for the 2 inch Passacaglia shape collection: The larger size is easier to sew by machine!
This video shows how to sew crosshair to crosshair by machine using hexagons as an example. It works the same way for the shapes in Passacaglia.
When the sewing goes a little faster, quilters can spend more time choosing fabric and fussy cutting and still finish Willyne Hammerstein’s complex design (Millefiori Quilts 1) in a reasonable amount of time.
I like to sew some of the easy seams by machine, crosshair to crosshair, and then add the ring to the center by hand, sewing continuously from one seam to the next.

SHAPE COLLECTION WITH DESIGN BOOK
Inklingo design books have the “how to” and shape collections have the shapes to print.
When you buy the Passacaglia shape collection, I also manually add the Hexagon Quilt Design Book ($20 value) as soon as I see your order. The design book focuses on 60 degree hexagons but the sewing and pressing instructions also apply to these shapes.
One design book is always available for free on the website, so you can see what kind of info is included in all of my design books.
There is Guide to Millefiori Quilts with Inklingo on the All About Inklingo blog. It includes links to video and info about fussy cutting.
START WITH THE FREE SHAPE COLLECTION
Of course the Diamond Triangle Square shape collection is also free. That is how you should start with Inklingo, if you haven’t already.
The Main Beginner’s Page is not just for beginning quilters. It is also great for anyone who is beginning with Inklingo.
SALE PRICE ON PASSACAGLIA 2 INCH (MILLEFIORI)
INTRO SALE PRICE EXTENDED TO TOMORROW NIGHT AT MIDNIGHT
If you have been following Inklingo, you know that new shape collections are at a LOW intro price when they are brand new. It only lasts for a short time and is a little reward for quilters who know about it first by subscribing to the blog.
The new Passacaglia shape collection is on sale for $25 instead of $30. (Monkey says $30 is still a deal!)
I do my best to keep prices low all the time because my mission with Inklingo is to make quilting more accessible—less expensive and easier.
While you are on the website, you can also get the new Pine Cone Quilt Design Book for free!
Please stay well and stay tuned for more!
Thank you for visiting.
