Moncarapacho Willyne Hammerstein
Print on fabric for better results than with traditional diamond quilt templates.
Sew by hand or machine or both (hybrid) or print templates for EPP.
Moncarapacho is the featured quilt on the cover of Millefiori Quilts 3 by Willyne Hammerstein, published by Quiltmania.
IMPORTANT You might already have everything you need without ordering anything more!
Wilyne created this wonderful, complex design with only the two diamonds in the Ballet shape collection, so I have not created a shape collection for Moncarapacho.
Willyne’s Favorite Shapes?
Passacaglia (cover of Millefiori 1), Ballet (cover of Millefiori 2), Tarantella (in Millefiori 3), Can Can (Millefiori 3), and Swinging Old Lady (Millefiori 4) all use the same diamonds. They are available in a choice of sizes, so you may already have everything you need. You can check your account on the website and the Index of Shapes.
If you order this shape collection, it will appear in your account as Ballet 3 cm. You might prefer 4 cm (Can Can) or 1.5 inch.
You might prefer Ballet 1.5 inch, Passacaglia (3 cm or 1.5 inch) or Tarantella (3 cm or 1.5 inch), Can Can (4 cm) or Swinging Old Lady, so please check the other options before you order this one.
Detailed diagrams for assembling the quilt top are in Willyne’s Millefiori Quilts book 3 (the third book).
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 Moncarapacho because the blocks interlock and overlap each other.
Continuous stitching and “circling the intersection” by hand are perfect for this design.
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 to sew Moncarapacho by hand or by machine with the shapes printed on fabric with Inklingo.
