Chapter 2

What Are Millefiori Quilts?

Millefiori quilts are a type of pattern design popularized by Willyne Hammerstein in her series of books, titled Millefiori Quilts 1, 2, and 3. Her patterns are extremely recognizable due to their unique style that consists of minimal repetition, yet, repetitive use of the same shapes to create numerous intricate blocks. These blocks often referred to ‘rosettes’ or ‘stars’, come in various shapes and are combined to create an entire quilt. If you active on Pinterest or Google Images type ‘millefiori quilts’ into the search bar, you will find a ton of examples. We’ve posted a few photos below for your viewing pleasure.

Another noticeable trait of a Millefiori quilt is that even though all of the quilts are made with the same design in mind, most quilts are very distinct. Due to the potential number of fabric combinations, very few, if any quilts are the same. This is one of the reasons why completing a Millefiori quilt is special; the chances you have a similar quilt to another person is the same odds as if you are playing the lotto!

2. Millefiori Designs

The term Millefiori is a combination of the Italian words ‘mile’ and ‘fiori’ (flowers). It is a technique which forms distinct decorative patterns on glassware and has now been replicated to other mediums such as quilting, silverware, and furniture. Another term that is used is Millefiori Patchwork.

3. Millefiori Quilts Book. What is Different About Each Book and What Millefiore Patterns Are In Them?

Each Millefiori Quilt Book contains a set of patterns. The first book contains 19 patterns and the second book contains 18 patterns and the 3rd contains 17 patterns. All of the patterns in the books are Millefiori patterns which consist of similar ‘rosette’ designs.

What’s In The Books? Each pattern comes with directions on how to piece together the individual blocks and rows, fabric requirements, required supplies, and numerous photos showing each step. There are plenty of pictures in each book if you are wondering! Below are two photos of the inside of Millefiori Quilts 2 showing how the directions are set up for each quilt pattern.

4. How Do You Make a Millefiore Quilt?

There is no ‘correct’ way to make a Millefiori Quilt. Technically, there are 3 ways to make a Millefiori quilt; machine, English Paper Piecing, or hand piecing. All 3 variations will produce the same end result, but all of the Millefiori patterns were designed to be English Paper Pieced or hand pieced.

5. How Difficult Is It To Make A Millifiori Quilt?

If you are looking at a Millefiori quilt for the first time; it can be a little intimidating! All of the Millefiori quilt patterns are “full-sized” quilts (even though some fairly small). Two examples are the La Passacaglia and Ballet Quilt which are around 59” x 70” in size. One of the best aspects of Hand Piecing and/or English Paper Piecing is that you can take your project with you. Whether you’re on a plane, waiting for children, or at the library – you’ll always find time to quilt! There is a way to speed up the process which consists of fussy cutting fabric in bulk.

Chapter 2

Willyne Hammerstein

Willyne Hammerstein is the author of the Millefiori book series and sole designer of all of the patterns (53 in total if you count all three books in circulation). Even though Willyne is credited with the designs, she did partner on several patterns. For instance, in Millefiori Quilts 2, she partnered with Kaffe Fassett for the ‘Ballet Quilt’ (Kaffe Fassett millefiori for short). She hails from the Netherlands and worked as a lawyer for 41 years, 25 years for the Nijmegen University as a lecturer/professor. As her time as a lawyer, she became appointed to the Dutch Council of State in 1994. In her spare time, she stated that she enjoyed quilting as a way to relax after her long days in the office. If you are looking for more information about Willyne, we suggest searching for ‘Willyne Hammerstein Quilts’.

Millefiori Quilts By Willyne Hammerstein

There are now a total of 3 books available in the series and it is considered a ‘complete series’ in that there won’t be any more books published. The books are titled Millefiori Quilts by Willyne Hammerstein, Millefiori Quilts 2 by Willyne Hammerstein, and Millefiori Quilts 3 by Willyne Hammerstein. All three of the books are published by Quiltmania and can be found in French and English. Millefiore Quilts is another name used to describe the book depending on your location.

Select Your Millefiori Quilt Pattern

1. Selecting your Millefiori Quilts Pattern From Any Book!

It’s time to select your Millefiori pattern. In the chapters below, we have additional information on each of the quilts and a location for your supplies. There are 3 main Millefiori quilts – The La Passacaglia Quilt (cover of Millefiori 1), Ballet With Kaffe Fassett (cover of Millefiori 2), and Moncarapacho (cover of Millefiori 3). The La Passacaglia is the most popular quilt of the 3 cover quilts and it was released in 2011. Ballet was released in 2014 and Moncarapacho/Millefiori 3 was recently released in September of 2017 so it’s popularity is undetermined! We also carry supplies for The Can Can, Rondo Vivace, and La Tarantella which are from Millefiori quilts 3.

2. Purchasing The Book and Why

The book is required to be purchased as it contains the directions for each of the patterns. If you are looking to purchase and sew all 3 of the cover quilts, you will need to buy Millefiori Quilts 1, Millefiori Quilts 2, and Millefiori Quilts 3. It also helps support the author Willyne!

3. Acrylic Templates

Acrylic templates are used for hand sewing the Millefiori Quilts. They help with cutting your fabric more accurately; specifically fussy cutting.

4. Paper Pieces

Paper pieces are used to help stabilize the quilt while you are forming rosettes or blocks. In our video tutorial below, you can see how this is done!

5. Millefiori Quilts Fabric Choices

It’s hard to talk about quilting without mentioning fabric! One of the best aspects of English Paper Piecing is the ability to fussy cut almost all of your shapes. On the other hand, selecting fabric is tough, especially for all of your rosettes! In one of the tutorial videos below, we discuss choosing your fabrics for making a large La Passacaglia rosette. In addition, we are starting to offer Millefiori Quilt Kits for select patterns and curated fussy cutting bundles if you are looking for pre-selected fabric choices.

We didn’t want to provide too much detail in this section, but if you are looking for more details continue reading to our Frequently Asked Questions and Tutorials Section.

Frequently Asked Millefiori Questions

1. Millefiori Quilt Acrylic Templates

Templates refer to ‘Acrylic Templates’ which are used by both hand piecers and English Paper Piecers. At TheDIYAddict, we sell clear acrylic templates for all of the Millefiori Quilt Patterns we carry (photos above). They come with 3/8″ seam allowance or 1/4″ seam allowance (with marking holes). We receive a fair amount of questions regarding the difference, and the honest truth is that the difference is based on personal preference. (Just like your favorite thread!) If it is your first-time hand sewing, English Paper Piecing, or hand piecing it is recommended that you use 3/8″ seam allowance templates as they are a little more forgiving.

2. Millefiori Quilt Paper Pieces

Paper pieces refer to the “Precision Cut Paper Pieces” which are mostly used by English Paper Piecers. At TheDIYAddict, we also sell paper pieces for all the Millefiori Quilt Patterns we carry (which you can view below). We sell ‘complete kits’ which means that we include all the individual paper pieces you will need for your quilt. We’ve heard horror stories of people buying papers from multiple online stores and they aren’t the same size which can cause A LOT of problems down the road when you are finishing. All of our paper pieces are made on a white, light, cardstock paper.

3. Original Verse Oversized Acrylic Templates and Paper Pieces

At TheDIYAddict, we sell both ‘original’ and ‘oversized’ supplies (acrylic templates and paper pieces). The original size is the exact same size dimensions found in the Millefiori Quilt books. Oversized supplies are 1.5x the size of the originals. Why? Some quilters find that the original sized shapes are a little harder to work with, hence they prefer large supplies. Having larger supplies also allows for more fussy cutting and who doesn’t love fussy cutting! We recommend the oversized supplies if it is your first Millefiori quilt.

4. Millefiori Patchwork Supplies and Notions

In addition to the pattern book, acrylic templates, and paper pieces, we have an additional set of supplies that could potentially help you with your upcoming project. There are no right or wrong supplies to purchase, but the list below is an excellent starting point!

What Is The Millefiori Quilts 1 Book?

The Millefiori Quilts series is a series of 3 books written by Willyne Hammerstein of the Netherlands. Within the 3 books, there are a total of 53 patterns, but we’re going to focus on book one in this chapter.

All of the Millefiori Quilts were designed to be hand pieced or hand sewn, but we have heard individuals that have machine quilted them as well. With that in mind, there are additional supplies and steps to making a hand pieced quilt which we’ll go into more detail below (and allow you to purchase supplies).

Millefiori Quilts 1 English Paper Piecing

The most popular style of hand piecing a Millefiori Quilt is known as ‘English Paper Piecing’. English Paper Piecing is known for its use of acrylic templates and individual precision cut paper pieces that are used in the process of building the quilt. You can also handpiece the quilt which only requires acrylic templates with marking holes.

What’s In The Book and Why Do I Need To Purchase It?

In the book, there are extensive pattern directions that help you with each quilt that also include how to select fabrics (including requirements). The directions include how to put together each of the unique blocks or rosettes (depending on the quilt), how to attach the rows together, and how to finish the quilt. We can’t give too much away as you need to buy the book (we also enjoy supporting Willyne’s writing career), but you can view a sneak peek below!

The La Passacaglia Cover Quilt

The most famous quilt in the series is the La Passacaglia quilt which is the quilt found on the cover. If you haven’t already, we’d recommend viewing Pinterest for samples of the rosettes or looking at the ones below!

What Makes a Millefiori Quilt and/or the La Passacaglia So Unique?

There are several benefits to Millefiori quilting; one of which is the fact that it is a hand-sewn quilt. Hand sewn can be done anywhere and everywhere – the airport, on your lunch break, or with friends at a local restaurant! Another feature of a Millefiori Quilt are the options for fussy cutting. Millefiori Quilts allow you to form intricate rosettes using any designer or fabric of your choosing. Due to circular designs, there are a ton of unique fabric combinations that can be obtained. But probably the best part of a Millefiori Quilt is that no two quilts are the same!

La Passacaglia Quilt

The La Passacaglia, or La Pass for short, is made up of 5 unique shapes and a total of 2,954 pieces.

Why Are There So Many Pieces And What Are They Used For? As mentioned above, the La Passacaglia Quilt was designed to be either English Paper Pieced or Hand Pieced. Both of these methods are hand sewing methods – even though there is no reason why you couldn’t machine quilt the entire project! To learn more about English Paper Piecing we suggest our English Paper Piecing Complete Guide

What Supplies Do I Need?

Getting started is much easier than it looks! If you are English Paper Piecing, the core supplies include the La Passacaglia Pattern, acrylic templates (to help with fussy cutting), paper pieces (to help with stabilization), fabric (which is up to you!), and various accessories such as Glue Pens. We’ll go through each of these in more detail below. Make sure you view the tutorials as well!

Pattern Directions

The only location to find the pattern is by purchasing the book. We’ve yet to find a complete set of directions online!

La Passacaglia Acrylic Templates and Why You Need Them

Seeing how the La Pass quilt is a hand-sewn quilt, acrylic templates are used to help with fussy cutting and precision. There are many styles, colors, and seam allowances for acrylic templates. For styles, you’ll often hear about full or window templates. Window templates have an opening in the middle between the seam allowance and the center of the template. Full templates are a solid acrylic throughout without any cuts into the middle of the template. Colors range from clear, red, orange, purple, and yellow. Sizes of acrylic templates (seam allowance) vary as well; from 1/8”, ¼”, 3/8”, ½”, to a 1”. At TheDIYAddict, we have found there are one preferred style and color and two sizes. The reasons are that 1/8” is too small, and anything above 3/8” is too much seam allowance, while clear acrylics make it easier for you to see your fabric while you fussy cut. our acrylic templates come in two sizes (or seam allowances): 1/4″ and 3/8″.

 

La Passacaglia Acrylic Tempaltes

La Passacaglia 3/8″ Seam Allowances

What Is The Difference Between 3/8 and 1/4″ Seam Allowances and Which Should I Choose? There is no difference between the acrylic templates not including the seam allowance. We wish we could be more precise on which size to choose, but it mostly has to do with personal preference. If you are new to English Paper Piecing, we’d recommend the 3/8″ seam allowance as it’s more forgiving.

La Passacaglia Paper Pieces and Why You Need Them

Paper pieces are helpful when it comes to English Paper Piecing and are used for precision and to help assemble the individual blocks more accurately, but are not required. Like acrylic templates, there are different styles and colors of papers, but few variations. When it comes to papers the most common styles are freezer paper, printer paper, recycled paper, or cardstock. All the above papers are usually white but the recycled paper is usually brown due to its recycled nature. At TheDIYAddict we sell cardstock paper pieces (only complete quilting sets) since we found the paper releases more effectively when you are removing your papers from the fabric.

La Passacaglia Paper Pieces

Whats The Difference Between Regular and Oversized Supplies?

The only difference between regular and oversized supplies is the overall size. At TheDIYddict, we sell oversized supplies for the La Passacaglia quilt that are 1.5x the original size. Why? Millefiori quilt pieces are notoriously small and having said that, a lot of quilters perfer a larger size as they are easier to manage.

How Much Fabric Do You Need?

Choosing fabric can be a difficult proposition. This is a very hard question to answer, but we always suggest you purchase or allocate enough fabric for 1 to 3 blocks. You should attempt to pick between 5 and 10 fabric designs and around one fat quarter of each. Once you have completed your first 3 blocks, you’ll have a much better idea of the fabric selection and lengths you’ll need. For some quilters, it might only take 10 yards of fabric, while others it might take up to 20 total yards. The difference comes from if you are fussy cutting the fabric or not. If you are fussy cutting and depending on the fabric (We love Carolyn Friedlander and Elizabeth Hartman!), it could take up to the 20 yards mentioned above. This assessment does NOT include borders or backing.

Which Thread To Use?

This is another really hard question to answer. At TheDIYAddict our favorite thread if Bottom Line from Superior Threads which is thin. Some quilters like Gutterman’s 100% cotton thread. Another favorite is Aurifil’s 28 weight thread. We recently did a survey and received over 47 different answers when it came to quilters individual preference for their favorite thread

What Supplies Do I Need?

Getting started is much easier than it looks! If you are English Paper Piecing, the core supplies include the Ballet Pattern, acrylic templates (to help with fussy cutting), paper pieces (to help with stabilization), fabric (which is up to you!), and various accessories such as Glue Pens. We’ll go through each of these in more detail below. Make sure you view the tutorials as well!

Pattern Directions

The only location to find the pattern is by purchasing the book. We’ve yet to find a complete set of directions online!

Ballet With Kaffe Fassett Acrylic Templates and Why You Need Them

Seeing how the Ballet quilt is a hand-sewn quilt, acrylic templates are used to help with fussy cutting and precision. There are many styles, colors, and seam allowances for acrylic templates. For styles, you’ll often hear about full or window templates. Window templates have an opening in the middle between the seam allowance and the center of the template. Full templates are a solid acrylic throughout without any cuts into the middle of the template. Colors range from clear, red, orange, purple, and yellow. Sizes of acrylic templates (seam allowance) vary as well; from 1/8”, ¼”, 3/8”, ½”, to a 1”. At TheDIYAddict, we have found there are one preferred style and color and two sizes. The reasons are that 1/8” is too small, and anything above 3/8” is too much seam allowance, while clear acrylics make it easier for you to see your fabric while you fussy cut. our acrylic templates come in two sizes (or seam allowances): 1/4″ and 3/8″.

What Is The Difference Between 3/8 and 1/4″ Seam Allowances and Which Should I Choose? There is no difference between the acrylic templates not including the seam allowance. We wish we could be more precise on which size to choose, but it mostly has to do with personal preference. If you are new to English Paper Piecing, we’d recommend the 3/8″ seam allowance as it’s more forgiving.

Ballet Paper Pieces and Why You Need Them

Paper pieces are helpful when it comes to English Paper Piecing and are used for precision and to help assemble the individual blocks more accurately, but are not required. Like acrylic templates, there are different styles and colors of papers, but few variations. When it comes to papers the most common styles are freezer paper, printer paper, recycled paper, or cardstock. All the above papers are usually white but the recycled paper is usually brown due to its recycled nature. At TheDIYAddict we sell cardstock paper pieces (only complete quilting sets) since we found the paper releases more effectively when you are removing your papers from the fabric.

Whats The Difference Between Regular and Oversized Supplies?

The only difference between regular and oversized supplies is the overall size. At TheDIYddict, we sell oversized supplies for the Ballet quilt that are 1.5x the original size. Why? Millefiori quilt pieces are notoriously small and having said that, a lot of quilters perfer a larger size as they are easier to manage.

How Much Fabric Do You Need?

Choosing fabric can be a difficult proposition. This is a very hard question to answer, but we always suggest you purchase or allocate enough fabric for 1 to 3 blocks. You should attempt to pick between 5 and 10 fabric designs and around one fat quarter of each. Once you have completed your first 3 blocks, you’ll have a much better idea of the fabric selection and lengths you’ll need. For some quilters, it might only take 10 yards of fabric, while others it might take up to 20 total yards. The difference comes from if you are fussy cutting the fabric or not. If you are fussy cutting and depending on the fabric (We love Carolyn Friedlander and Elizabeth Hartman!), it could take up to the 20 yards mentioned above. This assessment does NOT include borders or backing.

Which Thread To Use?

This is another really hard question to answer. At TheDIYAddict our favorite thread if Bottom Line from Superior Threads which is thin. Some quilters like Gutterman’s 100% cotton thread. Another favorite is Aurifil’s 28 weight thread. We recently did a survey and received over 47 different answers when it came to quilters individual preference for their favorite thread

    Is it possible to sew one of these quilts by machine, very carefully? If so, will you have some instruction on this method also?

    Moncarapachio is shown then below it lists templates and papers for La Passacaglia – is that an error?

    Mille in Italian means one thousand. Millefiori means one thousand flowers in the Italian. The millefiori intricate pattern comes from the Island of Murano off Venice, where the millefiori pattern is made with fine rods of coloured glass.
