Kaleidoscope Texas Star Fish Quilt Top


Sandra is making this fabulous¬†kaleidoscope Texas Star Fish quilt using the Inklingo .50″/1.00″ Star Point collection, the¬†Inklingo 1″ 60-degree hexagon collection, the Inklingo .50″ 60-degree hexagon collection, the Inklingo 2″ 60-degree diamond collection and diamonds and triangles from the Inklingo 1″ 60-degree diamond collection.


A few of the stars made with the .50″ 60-degree hexagons and the star points.


And the back of one, on which you can see the stitching lines and how flat it presses.

Sandra writes:

“Texas Star Fish started out with a colourful fish fabric that has a 12″ repeat.

Using the Inklingo .05″/1″ Star Point collection, I printed out 6 carefully placed sheets. This gave me enough for 35 stars. I will use 32 of them. The extras can be turned into a nice mug rug some day.

To surround the stars plus make this into a rectangular top, I discovered I needed and so printed 68 of the 1″ 60-degree hexagons in a light cream colour. For the star centres, I printed 32 .50″ 60-degree hexagons.

Sixteen 2″ 60-degree diamonds in a light cream and 14 2″ 60-degree diamonds in a darker cream were pieced with 15 half 2″ 60-degree diamonds in light cream to make a linear top and bottom.

To the line the right and left sides, I used a combination of 1″ 60-degree diamonds and 1″ triangles (both in the 1″ 60-degree diamond collection) and half 1″ 60-degree hexagons.

My build-up for the right and left sides required 18 half 1″ 60-degree hexagons in cream, 6 1″ 60-degree diamonds in the fish fabric and 22 1″ triangles¬†in a dark beige.”


This picture gives us a great look at how Sandra has used all those shapes to turn this into a fabulous small quilt top.


The wonderfully colourful and fun fabric that became the kaleidoscope star points.

Star Table Runner

Cathie D. made this pretty star table runner using the 1″ 60-degree diamond Inklingo collection.

She writes:

“This is a little table runner made using Inklingo. It was a travelling project. I really loved how easy it was to piece the diamond stars and how precise it made my work. It was pieced by hand but, as I am not a hand quilter, I did some simple machine quilting. I was inspired by a table runner pattern that was in an old issue of American Patchwork and Quilting. I used a charm pack and a pretty tone on tone background from my stash.

I would highly recommend Inklingo to anyone who loves precision but struggles.”

Tumbling Blocks Mug Rug

Cathi made this Tumbling Blocks mug rug using the 1″ 60-degree diamond collection and half hexagons from the 1″ 60-degree hexagon collection.

I had loads of diamonds from various swaps on the Inklingo list and, as I have always been intrigued by the Tumbling Blocks design, decided to make a mug rug. I wanted the light diamonds to be the same, so I printed some white diamonds to use and then just paired up the mediums and darks. Hand pieced and machine quilted.
