Looking just like the Venetian crystal sulphurs called ‘Millefiori’, here are Willyne Hammerstein’s exceptional quilts. With few templates, most of her quilts are designed around the hexagon, a shape of which she is especially fond. The layout and colour selection give true majesty to these quilts! This book features the famous and epic La Passacaglia quilt pattern.
For the most experienced among us, there are a couple of projects among the 20 quilts featured here that require a bit of attention…This is a gem for lovers of the traditional style! The rosettes are variable in size and shape in a variety of geometric shapes using English paper piecing (EPP).
“Passacaglia with Mr Penrose” is the quilt featured on the front cover. Mr Penrose is a famous British mathematician who works on stars, cosmos and the geometrical designs of “pavements”.
“This is one of the most difficult quilts to make, but making it is a fascinating pleasure! Good luck and have fun!”
