PDF DOWNLOAD - SHAPES 23.9 MB
Print shapes on fabric with any ordinary Inkjet printer.
This Inklingo PDF includes two of the shapes for Tarantella.
This shape collection is for quilters who already have the Passacaglia 1.5 inch shape collection, and just need the two additional shapes used in La Tarantella.
This "add-on" shape collection means that quilters don't have to buy the same shapes twice.
Tarantella uses two new shapes . . .
. . . with the 5 shapes in the Passacaglia 1.5 inch shape collection.
Most quilters hand piece this design, but you can machine piece, if you prefer.
Features of this Shape Collection (PDF)
- shapes to print on fabric
- diagrams showing how much fabric you need
- shapes without seam allowances to print on paper or freezer paper (just in case you want templates)
- use a rotary cutter or scissors
- optional layouts for different straight grain
- precision corners and matching marks to make the sewing easier
- ideal for fussy cutting
- shapes fit on Jelly Rolls and small scraps
- choice of methods—running stitch or English Paper Piecing
- an impressive, unusual, intriguing design
Detailed diagrams for the rosettes and assembling the quilt top are in Willyne’s gorgeous Millefiori Quilts 3 book. (The third book is my favorite!)
This Inklingo shape collection does not include instructions.
Sewing pentagons and diamonds into rosettes is 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
Compared to sewing hexagons, there is an added layer of complexity with Tarantella because the rosettes interlock and overlap each other.
A CHOICE OF SIZES
With the Tarantella 1.5 inch shape collection, the center of the quilt without borders is approx 64 x 82 inches.
The original size is also available. The center of quilt without borders is approx 50.5 x 64.5 inches.
Love the lines. Quilt more!
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 prefer.
