WILLYNE HAMMERSTEIN’S PASSACAGLIA - 1.5 INCH
PDF DOWNLOAD - SHAPES 30.6 MB + DESIGN BOOK
Print shapes on fabric with any ordinary Inkjet printer.
This Inklingo PDF includes the shapes for Passacagia.
Passacaglia is the exquisite quilt on the cover of Millefiori Quilts by Willyne Hammerstein, published by Quiltmania. Quilters asked for the design to be made Inklingo-able, so they would have the option to sew with a running stitch instead of English Paper Piecing and Quiltmania graciously agreed.
These shapes are larger than the templates in the book. There is another shape collection with the shapes in the original size (note below).
SEPTEMBER 2017 - The diamonds are also used for Moncarapacho in Millefiori Quilts 3 and in Wild is the Wind in Millefiori Quilts 1.
Most quilters hand piece this design, but you can machine piece, if you prefer.

Sewing pentagons and diamonds into rosettes is very similar to sewing hexagons, so when you order this shape collection, you also receive the Hexagon Quilt Design Book ($20 value, PDF download). There are short videos showing how to sew hexagons by hand or by machine on the Main Hexagon Page.
However, there is an added layer of complexity with Passacaglia because the rosettes interlock and overlap each other.
Detailed diagrams for the rosettes and assembling the quilt top are in Willyne’s Millefiori Quilts book.

HAND PIECING LESSON
If you are learning how to hand piece, Quilted Diamonds 2 is the book I recommend because it includes the two-hour DVD lesson for the price of a book alone. It is a great value.
The DVD is like taking a private lesson with me. Discover the advantages of sewing with a running stitch!
The brilliance of Willyne’s design is in the way she used the shapes to create interlocking rosettes. She teaches hand piecing with a running stitch.
It is NOT necessary to use EPP unless that is the method you prefer.
It is much easier to print the shapes on fabric with Inklingo (TWO methods of fussy cutting) and sew with a running stitch. You can probably start and finish 3 rosettes with Inklingo in the time it would take to make ONE with EPP.
On the other hand, there are 8 Good Ways to Use Inklingo for EPP if that is the method you love.
WILD IS THE WIND
The diamonds in this shape collection can also be used to make Wild is the Wind, another of the beautiful designs in Willyne Hammerstein's Millefiori Quilts (first book).
