Inklingo Shapes for Joie de Vivre

Willyne’s lovely design only uses three popular shapes, so you might already have the two shape collections you need. These are very slightly smaller than the original.

Fiesta Gitana 100%

Storm At Sea 4.5 inch

OR slightly larger than the original with these two shape collections:

Fiesta Gitana 150%

Storm At Sea 6.75-inch (add to cart on this page)

(In the original quilt, the long measurement on the kite is 2 inches.)

IMPORTANT I had to choose one shape collection for this page, so I chose the Storm At Sea shape collection because it includes so many versatile shapes plus you get the design book. You will need to order Fiesta Gitana 150% too if you don’t have it already.

Detailed diagrams for assembling the quilt top are in Willyne’s Millefiori Quilts 4 book (the fourth book).

Continuous stitching and “circling the intersection” by hand are perfect for this design.

The brilliance of Willyne’s design is in the way she used the shapes to create interlocking designs. She teaches hand piecing with a running stitch.
It is NOT necessary to use EPP unless that is the method you prefer.

It is much easier to print the shapes on fabric with Inklingo and sew with a running stitch.

On the other hand, there are 8 Good Ways to Use Inklingo for EPP if that is the method you prefer.

Love the lines. Quilt more!


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.
