La Passacaglia - The medaillion of Penny Rose and Martin Luther
I like to first plan my quilts with computer drawing designs which I afterwards then color picturing, and the Penrose pattern was a real challenge for me because of the limitless possibilities of interpretation.
In my layout I placed a varied medaillion in the middle, and then I chose to use the Luther Rose as the center for the rosette to form the framework.
I chose the colors, which nicely match the colors in my living room, from four (older) Moda Fat Quarter packets.

31. Januar 2016: the quilt is finished! Complete hand sewed. The red binding is added. My new Yoga quilt. With flannel = very warm for the nap after Yoga.
Quilttime 4 month.
My placement idea: adding a red Paspel,
same fabric as the binding.
A different way to finish the border without having to trim.
My edge solution for Millefiori La Passacaglia:
a red piping.
Then I do not have to trim or cut my beautiful EPP work.
And I reach the way a great 3D effect.
material (anthracite) initially with Pritstift / glue stick
Glue on the on the back recorded the
quilt top line.
It is the line where I might otherwise cut straight.
Then the edge of fabric with a large sewing machine stitch
1-2 cm from
the edge EPP pin.
The red fabric for the binding to take:
my Binding I cut most 3 inches wide / 7.5 cm.
The piping I
cut 1 1/2 inches wide / 4 cm.
fold to center. (Iron).
A woolen thread take (polyester wool ...)
stuppsen (fiddle) in the
with the zipper foot to sew woolen thread in the Piping binding.
Then the prepared homemade piping
between the edge of the EPP
and stuppsen (fiddle) the gray edge fabric
and manually gradually sew.
Then remove the sewing machine stitching yarn.
Just try, it's easier than you think,
is actually quite good.
But in my EPP-edge I avoid if possible, the 36 ° angle
triangles and small diamonds,
and thus the heaping tip of the seam allowances.
From Binding and from the piping I have prepared about 8 m.
Yoga cussion also has a piping.
It fits perfectly with my Yoga quilt. ;-)
So far, no one has expressed negative feelings about my edge solution.
On the contrary.
The piping is the icing on the cake.
Millefiori La Passacaglia Ballett Quilt.
05. July 2016
With my brother scan n cut maschine I have cut another eight A3 papers for more than 500 small rhombus.
And nine A3 papers for the penrose kites for the little stars.
Now I have enough paper pieces for the whole quilt.
The pieces are 4,5 cm long.
Also I have cut all fabric pieces.
Mostly I have used fat quarters.
But sometimes I have used double fat quarter or three fat quarter same fabric.
My stack shrank slightly.
There were four packets with Moda fat
4 x 40 fat quarter.
The finished quilt will maybe messure 195 cm x 170 cm.
77 inch x 67 inch.
This is my second Willyne Hammerstein quilt with my
160 fat quarter stack.
I have enough FQ left over for a third quilt...

My next La Passacaglia Ballett Penrose English Paper Piecing Quilttop is finished!
La Passacaglia - (Seerosenwiese) Water Lily Meadow
I like to first plan my quilts with computer drawing designs which I afterwards then color picturing and the Penrose pattern was a real challenge for me because of the limitless possibilities of interpretation.
For this quilt I symmetrically moved from the middle, a circle of stars, with further star circles, spreading out to the quilt´s border.
Originally I chose again from four (older) Moda Fat Quarter packets the combination green, white and rosé, but when Great Britain voted to leave the European Union with the terrible Brexit decision, this affected my choice of colors and ten stars "in European Blue" found their way onto the quilt.

After the many islamic star tessellation pattern with right angel tiling
I am back to the roots: Rosetten.
In this case the big Cogwheel as Mandala,
the gearwheel as main element in the quilt.
The mosaic got a new border:
now it is a flower tabletopper,
Diameter ca. 95 cm.
The middle is new: with an islamic design,
maybe like tilings in Marocco.
The Pattern included the new shapes or templates.
