Tarantella 1.5 inch Willyne Hammerstein
Print on fabric with Trarantella 1.5 inch to sew Willyne Hammerstein’s rosettes in a larger size for better results than with traditional Tarantella quilt templates.
Sew by hand with a running stitch or by machine or both (hybrid) or print templates for EPP.
Print on fabric with Tarantella 1.5 inch to sew this intriguing design in Millefiori Quilts 3 by Willyne Hammerstein, published by Quiltmania.
Tarantella 1.5 inch is larger than the original quilt. The same shapes are available in the original size (3 cm = 1.18 inch). Inklingo shape collections for Millefiori Quilts are listed in the Index of Shapes.
5 of the shapes are the same as the ones for Passacaglia 1.5 inch, so—
—if you already have the Passacaglia 1.5 inch shapes, you don’t have to buy them again. You only need the Tarantella 1.5 inch Add-On shape collection to get these two additional shapes.

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 Tarantella because the rosettes interlock and overlap each other.
Detailed diagrams for the rosettes and assembling the quilt top are in Willyne’s Millefiori Quilts 3 book.
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!
