Wild is the Wind is one of the patterns in Millefiori Quilts by Willyne Hammerstein.
I think this is the PERFECT design for anyone who is looking for a portable project! It is simple to choose fabric because you only need three.
This was my first attempt. It uses Marcus Fabrics Subtle Skies fabrics.
These also use the third fabric (border) included in the center of the quilt.
What an eye-catching alternative to Grandmother’s Flower Garden!
Isn’t this brilliant? This is all done with only two diamond shapes!
Good news! This design is NOT just for quilters who use English Paper Piecing.
The video shows how to hand piece Passacaglia.
Wild is the Wind is even simpler than the method for Passacaglia and there is lots of relaxing “continuous stitching!”
Wild is the Wind is only one of the intriguing designs in Millefiori Quilts!
You can see more of the designs in Millefiori Quilts on the Quiltmania site.
More good news! There are still a few copies of Millefiori Quilts and Millefiori Quilts 2 available on my website.
Caution: When the Millefiori Quilts books are gone (the first book), there will probably be a delay before Quiltmania can ship the next printing. Main Millefiori Page
By the way, if you have been following the Inklingo Facebook page, you have also seen a clamshell setting that uses these same diamonds!
Passacaglia just keeps on giving!
There is another clamshell version on Instagram @imasavonasac
I would love to see what you do with Inklingo Passacaglia diamonds!
ARE YOU SUBSCRIBED?
I post one or two photos on Facebook every day. I hope you will have a look at the photos I have posted in the last week or so. You do NOT have to have a Facebook account to see what I post there if you go directly to
(By the way, there was a fun connection with Inklingo when the new princess was born.)
However, Facebook only shows my photos to about 20% of the quilters who have “liked” the Inklingo Facebook Page, so the best way to stay up to date is to subscribe to the blog (top of right sidebar).
If you are on Facebook, please “like” and “comment” and “share” my photos. It makes it more fun for everyone.
