La Passacaglia

Today's quilts include all the quilts I saw in the RMQM exhibit made from patterns by Willyne Hammerstein. Probably the most "famous" pattern of hers is La Passacaglia, which include all the quilts shown here except the second one. A couple of these ladies said this was their first attempt at English Paper Piecing. I'm not sure they could've picked a more difficult pattern! I have this book and the "papers" and have yet to start it. Some of the pieces are very tiny! I love all of these…

Katie on Instagram: "Better look at my finished La Passacaglia quilt top. She is 80 inches by 90 inches and I have NO IDEA where I’m gonna put her when she’s done. I’m so thrilled with how this quilt turned out and I’m forever thankful to Pink Door Fabrics for organizing this Block of the Month program. This pattern is by Willyne Hammerstein from her book Millefiori Quilts. It’s called millefiori because it looks like Venetian millefiori glass, literally translated to “thousand flowers.” It w Patchwork, Millefiori Quilt Pattern, Passacaglia Quilt, La Passacaglia Quilt, Tula Pink Quilt, Hand Pieced Quilts, Millefiori Quilts, Hexagon Patchwork, Tula Pink Fabric

#La Passacaglia Quilt Along Begins

Willyne Hammerstein has created some breathtaking quilts in her book Millefiori Quilts. I thought it might be fun to do a Quilt Along of her La Passacaglia quilt. This post will contain links to obtain the book and materials so you can play along. Lilabelle Lane Paper Pieces.com has the book in stock, as well as pre-cut paper pieces for you to use. You can cut your own, there is a pattern in the book, but it can be time consuming and personally, I would rather spend that time sewing. To get…

Tips For Making Your Own La Passacaglia Quilt

Now that I'm nearly done, and with over a year of experience working on my own La Passacaglia quilt, I'm here with some tips just in case you want to tackle this project yourself. First, you need the book Millefiori Quilts by Willyne Hammerstein. It was published by Quilt Mania and is not widely available in the US (not available on Amazon.com); I got my copy at Paperpieces.com. Even if you know how to do English paper piecing, you will need the diagrams in the book because this quilt goes…
