La Passacaglia

Sunday morning was always the time I would visit my mother and is now a sad time each week since she passed away on January 2nd this year. Through her last few months, she loved to see the progress I was making in quilts and one of the projects I started so I could share it with her was a hand sewing project called La Passacaglia. The method of sewing is called English Paper Piecing (EPP for short) and I was inspired by seeing examples from other members of a Facebook group. This site really got me started and you can see lots of examples that might inspire you too:

This hand sewing was something I could take up and do as I was sitting with my mum, and in her last few days and hours as I was sitting with her, it helped me cope. Now that she’s not here, I’m still going to continue because it will always make me think of her – and because I love how the colours and designs develop.

The rosette below was completed in mum’s last hours. I’ve made a few now and one day I may have made enough to put together to make a quilt but meanwhile I’m just enjoying the process.
