Inklingo Shape Collections for Millefiori Quilts 2
Ballet (2 sizes) 3 cm and 1.5 inch
The same diamonds are used in several quilts: Passacaglia (Millefiori Quilts 1), Wild is the Wind (Millefiori Quilts 1), Moncarapacho (Millefiori Quilts 3), Tarantella (Millefiori Quilts 3), and Swinging Swinging Old Lady (Millefiori Quilts 4), so you might already have the two diamonds you need.
Be Calm and Count to Ten can be made with the diamonds in Passacaglia, Ballet, Tarantella, and Swinging Old Lady in a choice of sizes, so you might already have the two diamonds you need.
Dancing with the Stars can be made with 60° Diamond 1 inch and 60° Diamond 1.5 inch and 60° Hexagon 0.75 inch but the irregular kite is not Inklingo-able yet. When a shape is not available from Inklingo, I recommend using a freezer paper template in the manner taught in my Quilted Diamonds books.
Old Dutch can be made with any LeMoyne Star shape collection. The size in the book (4-inch) is smaller than the free Diamond Triangle Square shape collection (4.5-inch)
Whether you use Inklingo or not, you do not need acrylic templates for any of Willyne’s designs. You only need the book, some freezer paper, and your favorite fabrics. It is also less expensive than EPP, Freezer paper also works better than acrylic for fussy cutting.
Sewing by hand with a running stitch has many advantages and it is less expensive than EPP, Freezer paper also works better than acrylic for fussy cutting.

Millefiori Quilts 2 All Around the World
We are very lucky to be quilters in the twenty-first century! Willyne was born and lives in The Netherlands and she 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. Then it was shipped across the Atlantic, so I can mail it from the USA (Niagara Falls NY) to you—wherever you are in the world.
Not only that, but now you can order and download Inklingo shape collections for many of the designs from my site in Canada.
Love the lines. Quilt more!
