Millefiori Quilts by Willyne Hammerstein

We are very lucky to be quilters in the twenty-first century! We are inspired by quilters all over the world. There are no boundaries.


Millefiori Quilts by Willyne Hammerstein

Willyne Hammerstein, who was born and lives in The Netherlands, named her book Millefiori which is Italian for a thousand flowers. She was inspired by the tiling designs of an English mathematician and the book was published by Quiltmania in France, in English and French. Then it was shipped across the Atlantic, so I can mail it from the United States of America (Niagara Falls NY) to you­—wherever you are in the world.

Not only that, but soon you will be able to order and download Inklingo shapes for the cover quilt from my site in Canada. Exciting!

Quilters requested Inklingo shapes to print on fabric for The Passacaglia and I am very grateful that Willyne Hammerstein and Carol Veillon at Quiltmania agreed. (They may have been influenced by a quilter in Singapore.) The shape collections will be ready soon.

This beautiful book includes patterns for 20 stunning designs and notes about Willyne’s life story. Every quilt is a work of art. Willyne’s designs with hexagons and pentagons are brilliant.

The flip-book of the quilts on the Quiltmania site shows more of the quilts.

Inklingo makes quilting more accessible and more affordable for quilters whether they enjoy English Paper Piecing or not. The Inklingo Passacaglia shape collections will include more quilters.

When you print with Inklingo, there are more options:

Sewing the shapes in The Passacaglia is similar to sewing hexagons for Grandmother’s Flower Garden and other designs, but there is added complexity because the rosettes interlock and overlap each other.

I think Roger Penrose would be impressed with Willyne’s interpretation of his work on Penrose tilings.

  1. Linda, I have had Willyne Hammerstein’s gorgeous book since it was first published but could not face paper-piecing her La Passcalgia quilt. Now that the shapes will be available on Inklingo, I am already putting aside fabrics to start. Thank you ever so much. I cannot wait! Hugs, Fern

  2. What a gorgeous book with lots of ideas for some very beautiful quilts. I love hexagons. Thank you for introducing this quilter to us. I look forward to seeing your new designs!
    Take care.

  3. Please direct me to the web site where you put your fabric into the printer. How do I attach fabric to paper (?) so that it can print.
    Thank you

  4. Oh, this is so exciting! I can’t wait for the mail to arrive!! I know I’m going to spend hours looking through that gorgeous book. And I’m already picking out fabrics with which to play for the fabulous design of that cover quilt!

  5. I just love everything you are coming up with and all the new designs you have released God willing I will have a new desktop computer and printer in the next couple of months as it is my only connection to the world and be able to finally try these beautiful things I have been waiting patiently and referring all my friends too.
