Willyne Hammerstein’s Ballet with Inklingo

Ballet from Millefiori Quilts 2

SEW BALLET WITH KAFFE FASSETT WITH INKLINGO!

Ballet is ready now!

Quilters are already using Inklingo to sew Willyne’s Passacaglia, Midnight Fireworks and Valse Brillante (all in Millefiori Quilts, the first book). . .

but. . .

of course. . .

they also asked for Ballet with Kaffe Fasset from Millefiori Quilts 2—and Quiltmania graciously agreed.

Carol Veillon, editor of Quiltmania and publisher of Millefiori Quilts and Millefiori Quilts 2 made it possible!

 

Inklingo templates for Ballet with Kaffe Fassett

The templates in the book are 3 cm, and you can print with Inklingo and sew the same size Willyne used for her amazing quilt.

There is choice of layouts. This one uses the fabric very efficiently. There are two others for this kite shape—including one for directional fabric!

The shapes on all of the layouts are arranged so you can rotary cut several layers at a time OR cut with scissors.

Print the shapes on fabric with your ordinary Inkjet printer, cut and sew! It couldn’t be simpler! No templates, no basting.

There is also an Inklingo shape collection with larger shapes. This is ideal if your fabric has larger designs or if you want to sew some of your quilt by machine.

Quiltmania Magazine

I am thrilled that Carol Veillon and the wonderful people at Quiltmania understand that quilters want to be able to make the beautiful designs in their books and magazines with Inklingo!

Quiltmania has been good to Inklingo since their first review, 50 issues ago (Issue 58): “It helps you prepare your pieces quickly and precisely before hand or machine sewing them.” 

I could not resist Quiltmania even when it was not translated into English! The photography and the designs are stunning.

Quiltmania No. 108 features wonderful artists (including Willyne) and
beautiful quilts from shows all over the world. They also give us a peek into quilters’ homes and unique quilt projects.

If you want to support a stunning magazine that supports Inklingo (and I think you do), there is a special price for quilters in the USA and Canada!

Let’s show Quiltmania that we love what they do!

 

Print diamonds on fabric or on paper with Inklingo

Printing with Inklingo makes it possible to sew Ballet by hand with a running stitch, by machine, or with English Paper Piecing (EPP).

Willyne Hammerstein sews her amazing designs by hand with a running stitch (not English Paper Piecing).

 

How to Sew Passacaglia by Hand

There is a video on the Main Millefiori Page showing how to sew Passacaglia rosettes by hand and it works the same way for Ballet.

There are also a few Inklingo lessons which you may find helpful for this dancing design:

  1. What a fabulous set of collections to make this beautiful quilt! It will be such fun to see this quilt being made with the precision that Inklingo makes so easy!

  2. Are the first two shapes the same as the ones in Willyne Hammerstein’s Passacaglia 1.5 inch?

    If so, are the other two shapes available separately (for a reduced price, of course – lol)?
