Isn't she gorgeous!? It is my finished La Passacaglia quilt, finished and hanging in place.
I made my version to hang in a particular spot in my kitchen. I had to reduce the size a little to fit in this space. The finished quilt is 38" by 55" which I managed by making fewer "blocks." And I knew when I started that I would not use a border. I used one of the green fabrics to make a narrow binding.
I named my version Rondeau. The quilting was a custom job done by Karen Thompson. The quilting enhances the design; I like the loops in each pentagon. Karen is making her own version of La Passacaglia and gave this one some extra attention to figure out what would work best from a quilting standpoint.
Rondeau looks great in my kitchen space. I like it so much that I'm already thinking about another English Paper Piecing project! So many quilts in my head!
Did I inspire you to think about making your own La Passacaglia? Well, here's a little help. I happen to have an extra copy of the book that started it all, Millefiori Quilts by Willyne Hammerstein. Time for a giveaway; just leave a comment here if you would like to win a copy. But US addresses only. I'll do a random draw of the winner on Sunday evening, Dec. 11. Added Sunday night: The winner is Karen!
