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 Fiesta Gitana because the stars interlock and overlap each other.
Detailed diagrams for the rosettes and assembling the quilt top are in Willyne’s fourth book, Millefiori Quilts 4.
There are two wonderful methods of fussy cutting with Inklingo.
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 this design easier to sew.
And a little fiesta music!
