Willyne used only 3 shapes—including a square—to design this exciting star quilt.

The shapes are the same size as the original.

I see stars and bright colors. It is a happy quilt.

As you might expect, Willyne includes fussy cutting opportunities that we love.

You can get a faster finish with Inklingo than with traditional methods. There are two methods of fussy cutting with Inklingo and neither uses acrylic templates. (Why I don’t sell acrylic templates.)

Most quilters hand piece this size but you can combine hand and machine piecing in a hybrid when you have lines printed on the fabric with Inklingo. There are examples of hybrid piecing and fussy cutting in the short videos for Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses. Those videos are helpful no matter what design you are sewing.

Detailed diagrams and instructions for assembling the quilt top are in Willyne’s fifth book, Millefiori Quilts 5.

I wonder if this was Willyne’s inspiration for the name of this quilt. Thank you to life is beautiful either way.

There are some good, short videos collected under a tab on the page for the Millefiori Quilts 1 book which show how Inklingo makes this design even more fun by hand or by machine or a combination of both.
