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.
