I have been totally distracted the past few days looking through the latest book by Willyne Hammerstein – Millefiori Quilts 3. While I loved lots of the quilts in Millefiori Quilts 1 and 2, the quilts in Millefiori Quilts 3 are all calling to me. I can actually envision making my own version of almost every single one of them.
When it first arrived, I was lost for a few hours going through it. And every single evening since it arrived I’ve been looking through it over and over again, identifying the quilts I want to make.
The best part? There are already two Inklingo collections for Capriccioso, one of the quilts in Millefiori Quilts 3 – a collection for the original size and one for a larger size. I’m intrigued by this design as I have visions of making this utilizing some fussy cutting/printing and some placement of fabrics to get a different effect. It’s definitely on my mind as I work on the last of the Garden Gone Wild flowers and will be what I start on as soon as I get them finished. There are already Inklingo shapes for the two diamonds in Moncarapacho, the cover quilt of Millefiori Quilts 3 – any one of the Ballet collections and Passacaglia collections have those two diamonds. All the Millefiori Quilts books and the Inklingo collections that are available for the various quilts in them can be found on the main Inklingo Millefiori Quilts page.
It has been a very long time since a book has had me this intrigued. I love the quality of the book as well as Quiltmania really does put out a great product that is definitely worth buying. But even though I’m dying to play and have already printed window templates to use when auditioning fabrics for fussy cutting/printing some of the shapes in Capriccioso, I’m going back to the Garden Gone Wild flowers!
“Love this Book!”
Jake is definitely getting used to having his picture taken.
I couldn’t resist this photo of Baxter.
