Ietsie Pietsie Pizzicato by Willyne Hammerstein

You certainly know how to keep me busy.I’ve been listening.

  1. New Shapes! Ietsie Pietsie Pizzicato, which I am calling Pizzicato for short.
  2. New Live Video! Friday Night 7 pm Eastern

The Ietsie Pietsie Pizzicata shape collection is ready now! It isone of Willyne Hammerstein’s brilliant designs in Millefiori Quilts 3.

As usual, there is a LOW intro price for one week only.

Russ reads every word of every shape collection out loud to help me proofread. He laughed every time he read “Ietsie Pietsie Pizzicato.” I have never heard these words before but I can confidently say that he did not pronounce any part of it correctly.

Ietsie Pietsie is a bit like Itsy Bitsy.

Pizzicato is a playing technique that involves plucking the strings of string instrument, like a violin or guitar.

I will probably never pronounce any of this correctly. I learned how to read with phonics before I was old enough to go to kindergarten. I pronounce words with a Canadian accent and the way they are spelled.Here is a pronunciation link for the purists.

Print Hexagons on Fabric

My pronunciation may be suspect but the shapes to print on fabric are absolutely perfect. You will love the results when you start with precise shapes!

Ietsie Pietsie Pizzicato includes new sizes of hexagons, diamonds, triangles, and stars. It is a great addition to your collection of collections!

Your reaction to the live videos energizes me. I’ve been getting ready for another one. I hope you will join the fun.

This time, I will share tips for finding what shapes are available, what to do when you are just missing one or two shapes, and how to make a request. This sounds straightforward but I have a LOT to show you!

The list of requests seems to get longer every day. When I took the shape collection for Ietsie Pietsie Pizzicato off the list, I added three more.

The original plan was to announce Pizzicato in the live video but I have prepared so many good demos that I could be talking all night, so you are hearing about it now.

Inklingo Live Video

Go to theInklingo Facebook Page.

When: Friday, April 6, 7 pm Eastern Time. World Time Buddytells you what time that is in your time zone.

There is no sound until you hover over the video and click on the speaker icon in the lower right corner. The video should play immediately but if it doesn’t, please refresh the page.

Please tell your friends too because Google (gmail) and Yahoo have changed the email rules to make it harder for blog emails to be delivered.

Some of you may have noticed that I have not been posting as often on Facebook. When I post something, Facebook often only shows it to 50-150 of the 44,800+ quilters who have liked the page.

That means that even if you have liked theInklingo Facebook Pageyou probably are not getting my photos in your timeline. Facebook wants me to pay every time I post something to show it to a few more quilters—never everyone—so it is up to you to visit.

Watching live and interacting with comments is great fun but every video is also available to watch later. When I post the replays on the blog, I add links and extra info. There is a list under the Video tab on the website. Video Tab

There are new rules this year. Please subscribe and add to your contact list if you want to continue receiving emails when there is something new on the blog.

Introduction to Inklingo

If you want a little review or a short introduction to printing on fabric, this 8 minutes is Time Well Spent. There is also another very short video on the Main Beginner’s Page showing how to prepare fabric sheets for printing with an Inkjet.

  1. It’s December 31/2018 and I got your post via email. I don’t get your Facebook posts even though I chose to follow you. Thank you for Inklingo.

  2. Hi Cindy,
    I use a #12 Sharp for hand piecing but that is not what I recommend for everyone. It is not that simple.
    There is detailed info about needle and thread on page 38 of the Hexagon Quilt Design Book, which you have.

  3. I’ll be there tonight. Can’t wait.
    I was wondering, what size and type of needle do you use for hand piecing ?

  4. I’m glad you will be watching on Friday, Cathi! By the way, you are not alone. Ietsie Pietsie Pizzicato caught the eye of several quilters as soon as Millefiori 3 was available . It is a lovely design.

  5. I love that design – when I first got the book, I was immediately attracted to it!! And a new live video on Friday? How perfect to have to look forward to at the end of the week!!

  6. I am glad you watch the replays, Louise. I understand about not wanting to be on Facebook. Facebook makes the videos possible and then lets me share them elsewhere, so it’s all good.

  7. Hello Linda.

    I will watch the video only when it’s on replay. I will never join Facebook, so I enjoy the videos later but I still get a lot from them. Thank you for giving us a chance to watch the videos later it’s really appreciated.
    Best regards,
