This Inklingo PDF includes the shapes for Fiesta Gitana in a larger size than the original.
Fiesta Gitana is one of the the superb designs in Millefiori Quilts 4 by Willyne Hammerstein, published by Quiltmania. Quilters asked for the design to be made Inklingo-able, so they would have the option to sew with a running stitch or English Paper Piecing.

This Inklingo shape collection does not include instructions. Sewing these shapes is very similar to sewing hexagons, so when you order this shape collection, you also receive the Hexagon Quilt Design Book ($20 value, PDF download). There are short videos showing how to sew hexagons by hand or by machine on the Main Hexagon Page.
Detailed diagrams for assembling the quilt top are in Willyne’s Millefiori Quilts 4 book.
Love the lines. Quilt more!
HAND PIECING LESSON
If you are learning how to hand piece, Quilted Diamonds 2 is the book I recommend because it includes the two-hour DVD lesson for the price of a book alone. It is a great value.
The DVD is like taking a private lesson with me. Discover the advantages of sewing with a running stitch!
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 (TWO methods of fussy cutting) and sew with a running stitch. You can probably start and finish 3 rosettes with Inklingo in the time it would take to make ONE with EPP.
On the other hand, there are 8 Good Ways to Use Inklingo for EPP if that is the method you love.
