Ballet 3 cm Willyne Hammerstein
Print on fabric to sew Willyne’s rosettes for better results than with traditional Ballet quilt templates.
Sew by hand or machine or both (hybrid) or print templates for EPP.
Print the Ballet 3 cm shapes on fabric to make your version the amazing quilt on the cover of Millefiori Quilts 2 by Willyne Hammerstein, published by Quiltmania.
This shape collection includes the shapes for Willyne Hammerstein’s Ballet in the original size. The same shapes are available in a larger size (1.5 inch). Inklingo shape collections for Millefiori Quilts are listed in the Index of Shapes.
The same diamonds are used in Wild is the Wind (Millefiori Quilts 1), Ballet (Millefiori Quilts 2), Moncarapacho (Millefiori Quilts 3), Tarantella (Millefiori Quilts 3), and Swinging Swinging Old Lady (Millefiori Quilts 4)

When you buy this shape collection, I manually add the Hexagon Quilt Design Book (70 pages) as soon as I see your order, so you can download it too. The design book focuses on 60° hexagons but the sewing and pressing instructions also apply to these shapes. There is an added layer of complexity to Ballet because the rosettes interlock and overlap each other.
Detailed diagrams for the rosettes and assembling the quilt top are in Willyne’s second book, Millefiori Quilts 2.
Even with fussy cutting, 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.)
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 Ballet easier to sew.
