What is ‘La Passacaglia’?

Before we even get into the quilt, what is ‘La Passacaglia’ and how do we pronounce it?

La Passacaglia Quilt Rosette made by Alexandra Luenz using Cotton+Steel fabric.
Pattern from Millefiori Quilts by Willyne Hammerstein
Where is the pattern itself?

The La Passacaglia Quilt is just one of many stunning designs to be found in Millefiori Quilts by Dutch quilt designer Willyne Hammerstein.

Why has this quilt pattern become such a sensation?
Even if you’ve never heard of La Passacaglia, you have no doubt noticed the rise of the hexie! English Paper Piecing and EPP hexagons are nothing new, but this very traditional form of quilting has found a new lease of life thanks to the trend for geometrics, but more so the need for piecing that can be done without a sewing machine.
We’ve been EPPing (!) in front of the TV, on trains, in waiting rooms, in coffee shops – basically anywhere we fancy doing a spot
of sewing and just can't get to a machine

The instructions in the book Millifiori Quilts are super clear, and include everything including templates, step-by-step walk through, and a detailed layout diagram.

Taken on step at a time, this is a wonderful project to work through at your own pace.

We have found Sewlline products for Applique are fantastic -- their glue pen is very popular.
We have carried them all and tried them all, really hard to find fault with the glue pens.
We sell all colors of glue refill constantly. This seems a person decision.
Apliquick glue pen is now hard to get from Spain and we are selling Sewline with Apliquick Rods etc

English Paper Piecing (EPP) is a centuries old method of making quilts by hand. The modern era of machines has made paper piecing more precise and accessible. Even though the way paper pieces are produced has changed, the way EPP is done has not changed since its creation.

Whether you are new to EPP or are an old friend of ours, we hope the variety of projects and ideas on our site will inspire you.

You will find a variety of tool necessary for EPP Below - also in the Categories listed above
