WILLYNE HAMMERSTEIN'S WILD IS THE WIND
This complex and lovely design only uses two diamonds.
I have not created a shape collection for Wild is the Wind but the diamonds are the same as the ones in Passacaglia (cover of Millefiori 1), Ballet (cover of Millefiori 2), Tarantella (in Millefiori 3), Can Can (Millefiori 3), and Swinging Old Lady (Millefiori 4), so you may already have everything you need.
IMPORTANT I had to choose one shape collection for this page, so I chose the least expensive one, but you might prefer a different size of Ballet ($20), Passacaglia ($25) or Tarantella ($30) to get these diamonds, so please compare the options on the Main Millefiori Page before you buy.
Detailed diagrams for assembling the quilt top are in Willyne’s Millefiori Quilts book (the first 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).
MAIN MILLEFIORI PAGE You might prefer Ballet 1.5 inch, Passacaglia (3 cm or 1.5 inch) or Tarantella (3 cm or 1.5 inch), Can Can, or Swinging Old Lady, so please check the other options before you order this one.
There is video and more info to help you decide!
