How to sew Passacaglia by Hand

If you have been following Inklingo on Facebook, you know that I woke up early on Friday morning with “an idea.”

The kitchen became a Hollywood set.

I had to hunch over the pile of books and the camera to get the sewing sequences, so if my running stitch seems a bit slower than usual, that’s the reason. LOL


We’ve been so preoccupied with Passacaglia and Willyne Hammerstein’s Millefiori Books that we have not spent as much time on Quilted Diamonds 2 as the occasion deserves!

I will keep the special sale price of $15 on the new Inklingo for Quilted Diamonds shape collection for a few more days. Main Quilted Diamonds Page

There are FAQ about Quilted Diamonds on the blog.

I post one or two photos on Facebook every day, but Facebook only shows my photos to about 20% of the quilters who have “liked” the Inklingo Facebook Page, so the best way to stay up to date is to subscribe to the blog (top of right sidebar).

If you are on Facebook, please “like” and “comment” and “share” my photos. It makes it more fun for everyone.

If you enjoy the video, How to Sew Passacaglia by Hand, please Like it on YouTube and share it on Facebook.

Don’t worry. I will clean up the kitchen this afternoon, so Russ can cook Sunday dinner.

I might have a nap first.

Thank you for visiting!

  1. I have been reading on your site and watching your videos. I have been wanting to try sewing some of the hexagon for some time now. I have looked at several sites and then came across yours. I love your site, btw. I want so bad to stop sewing my bargello quilt so I can try making hexagons. Thanks for making this site. I think you and Monkey do great work.

    • Hi Karen,
      It is similar—-a Panasonic Lumix. Great little camera for video like this. I’m glad you like it. My nails were a mess from cleaning up in the garden, so I spent some time trying to make them presentable but the editing is the most time-consuming part. Very tedious.
      I hope you have a wonderful week with time to sew!
      Hugs, Linda & Monkey

  2. What a treat to find another video by Linda!
    I love having a video to see and hear Linda as she encourages and motivates/inspires anyone to be able to take up a needle and sew this design or any of the many others that are available.
    Because of the accuracy of Inklingo templates, I added on my pentagons in the third row as I sewed and then realized later that a ring of pentagons had been suggested in the book. But adding them as I sewed was so easy that I never tried the ring.
    I would never have ordered the book for these quilts if it had not been for Inklingo; it has made piecing Passacaglia a pleasure and no messy glue! With so many pieces printed ready to piece, you can have a large number of pieces ready to go and only need a needle or two and thread to go with it. It makes it possible that your go-to-bag is always ready and your handwork doesn’t take up much room for travel.

  3. I so appreciate this video. I’m on my third rosette and “accidentally” did the second one without sewing a ring of “C’s” and felt it worked as well or better. I also like the reminder to finger press. Am loving this!!!

  4. Another great video, Linda. I always learn something new from each one and they always help me improve my stitching! Thanks so much.
    Did I hear you mention something to Monkey about making another video for machine piecing???

  5. Great video Linda. You’ve made me a much more confident piecer with your excellent instructions. I think I’m ready to try my first rosette. Who knows, I may make the whole quilt. Thanks Linda.
