WILLYNE HAMMERSTEIN'S JOIE DE VIVRE
PDF DOWNLOAD - SHAPES 13 MB
Print shapes on fabric with any ordinary Inkjet printer.
I have not created a shape collection for Joie de Vivre but the shapes are available. TWO shape collections are required.
Willyne's exuberant design only uses 3 shapes, so you might already have the two popular shape collections you need to make it.
There is a choice of sizes using the kite shape A from Fiesta Gitana.
Slightly smaller than the original with these two shape collections:
Fiesta Gitana 100%
Storm At Sea 4.5 inch
OR slightly larger than the original with these two shape collections:
Fiesta Gitana 150%
Storm At Sea 6.75 inch (add to cart on this page)
(In the original quilt, the long measurement on the kite is 2 inches.)
IMPORTANT I had to choose one shape collection for this page, so I chose the larger Storm At Sea shape collection because it includes so many versatile shapes plus you get the design book. You will need to order Fiesta Gitana 150% too, if you don't have it already.
These stars are fabulous.
Detailed diagrams for assembling the quilt top are in Willyne’s Millefiori Quilts 4 book (fourth book).
Love the lines. Quilt more!
LEARN TO HAND PIECE
The two-hour hand piecing lesson in Quilted Diamonds 2
is like taking a private lesson from me.
The brilliance of Willyne’s design is in the way she used the shapes to create interlocking designs. 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 and sew with a running stitch.
On the other hand, there are 8 Good Ways to Use Inklingo for EPP if that is the method you prefer.
IMPORTANT If you are new to Inklingo, please start on the Main Beginner's Page (free shape collection and video).
