Why People Love The La Passacaglia Quilt and English Paper Piecing

The La Passacaglia Quilt is internationally known.
Even if you are not a hand piecer or english paper piecer, you’ll fall in love with the quilt.
The intricate designs provoke endless color combinations and the quilt keeps you busy, thinking about it daily! It’s very addicting.
But what makes English Paper Piecing so special?
The key to English Paper Piecing is its versatility and the fact that you do not need a machine. Sew on the Go!
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
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

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.

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
