Kathy gets fabulous special effects with fussy cutting/printing on fabric! Just look at this second Morse Star she has made.

She writes that, “They are fun blocks to make!” And she is so right – particularly when they turn out so spectacularly!

Morse Stars/Inklingo Stars



Cathi in Toronto has been making Morse Stars  using the 9″ Inklingo Star collection along with the free Diamond-Triangle-Square Inklingo collection.


“Linda had been showing some blocks she was making with the new Inklingo Star collection on the Inklingo Facebook page before the collection was released. One of them was named the Morse Star and the second I saw it, I was intrigued and knew I had to make it. As soon as the collection was released, I asked Barb at Just Sayin Sew if she wanted to make blocks from the new collection and simul-blog about them. The Morse Star finishes at 18″ and is great fun to stitch. I hybrid-pieced the block by machine piecing the triangle square corners and hand piecing the rest. It is an absolutely addictive block to stitch! But I couldn’t stop there. I had to make one of the other 9″ stars that are possible with the shapes in the Inklingo Star collection.

Fussy cutting/printing the kites for these blocks really is fun and makes for some great special effects!”

More Inklingo Star Fun (13)

Barb in Texas has been making some fabulous stars using the 9″ Inklingo Star collection along with the free Inklingo Diamond-Triangle-Square collection .

She wrote:

“I made these blocks after Cathi at Quilt Obsession challenged me on a Saturday to make one and post it on my blog by Monday. And we ‘simul-blogged’ (Cathi’s new word and I love it).  How could I resist making a block called Inklingo Star anyway? Only little did I know it would become my new addiction. I love making these stars! The kites are so fun to fussy cut/print and stitch. Who knows how big this quilt will become?”

A little fussy cutting/printing and some fabulous effects are to be had as Barb’s stars really emphasize.


Stars in the Castle Wall


Kathy in Nashville has designed and made the most wonderful quilt using the Inklingo 9″ LeMoyne Star and 9″ Castle Wall Inklingo collections.

She writes:

“I used the 9″ Castle Wall and 9″ LeMoyne Star. I started with fabric from Sue Daley’s Twig and Grace line and then added from my stash.

It is made completely with Inklingo except for the diamond border. That was a weird angle so I drew it on freezer paper and did it the ‘old-fashioned’ way. The outside border is made from some of the shapes in the Castle Wall collection.”

Kathy really knows how to get great effects using some fussy cutting/printing.  Here are a few close-ups of some of the blocks.  It was difficult to choose ones to add to this post. So if you want to see more you can at Kathy’s Flickr page.








Diamond Wall Hanging


Ligia made this pretty wall hanging using the 2.25″ 60-degree diamonds from Inklingo CD#3.

She writes:

“I used shapes on CD #3 (running beautifully on W8). The stars were hand stitched and the outer diamonds were machine pieced. I drew the triangles that connect the hexagons and the setting triangles – not too difficult on a small project.”

Periwinkle Quilt


Jeannette made this beautiful periwinkle quilt using the Inklingo 1.32″ Periwinkle Octagon collection.

She writes:

“I used a Moda layer cake for my Periwinkle quilt. It’s hand pieced and hand quilted. I used the Periwinkle Octagon collection. The quilt measures 56″ square.”

Baskets and Flowers


Jeannette has made this pretty basket and flowers quilt using the Inklingo 6″ basket collection for the basket blocks.

She writes:

“I made this quilt using the 6″ basket block. The baskets were all hand pieced. I made the flower panels and blanket stitched around the flowers by machine. This was a quilt as you go project. I stipple quilted around each basket and echo quilted the full length of each flower panel before joining them together. The quilt measures 50″ x 70″.”

Red and White Schoolhouse


Jeannette made this fabulous red and white School House quilt using the Inklingo 9″ School House collection.

She writes:

“I used the 9″ School House collection for this quilt. Some houses were hand pieced and some were machined. The border is made of 2″ HSTs. I hand quilted the Baptist Fan design on this and I love the way it turned out. It measures 65″ x 55″.”

Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses


Silmara is making some absolutely stunning Patchwork of the Crosses blocks using the Inklingo 90-degree 1″ hexagon collection.

She writes:

“In order to make the Lucy Boston quilt I need 56 blocks. Now I’m up to 20 blocks. I’m almost there … LOL. I’m making the blocks using Inklingo because I consider it the perfect way to make these and other patchwork blocks. I also decided to make the first corner as I’ve shown below. This is a quilt that I don’t want to make in a hurry. Each block is an exercise of creativity and a pleasure to discover the possibilities of what we can do with fabrics.”

Lots of pictures in this post and another that will publish on Tuesday, so be sure to come back then. You do not want to miss any of these beauties. First the block with the corner.


It’s fabulous to see the special effects Silmara has achieved with a little fussy cutting/printing.  So keep scrolling down to see more of these fabulous blocks.
