Rose Star

DSC00555

Jeannette made this gorgeous quilt using the 1″ kite from the Inklingo 12″ Rose Star collection and hexagons from the Inklingo 60-degree 2″ hexagon collection.

She writes:

“This year I decided I had better make some of the quilt tops I have made into quilts. I used the 1″ kite from the 12″ Rose Star collection and 2″ hexagons. I fussy cut the butterflies in the centres. It is hand pieced and machine quilted using a serpentine stitch down the length of the quilt. The quilt measures 53″ x 79″.”

Baby X’s and O’s

Cathi made this baby quilt she’s named Baby X’s and O’s using the Inklingo Spool 7.5″/Japanese X collection and the Inklingo Bigger Circles collection. The label for the little quilt was made using the Inklingo 60-degree 2″ hexagon collection.

“I made this quilt almost totally by machine. I started out hand piecing and finished one block. I then realized how much quicker it would be were I to piece it by machine. I decided to emphasize the X effect when choosing my fabric placement.

The top had sat for quite some time until very good friends told us they were about to become grandparents for the first time. Out came the little top and I machine quilted it, again emphasizing the X in the design. After looking at it for a while, I felt it still needed something so decided to add the circles. I used the 3.125″ circles and appliquéd them on to the top, again in an X formation.

I like to make a pieced label that incorporates some fabric used in the quilt. One of my favourite labels to make is a 2″ hexagon surrounded by other half hexagons as the 2″ hexagon gives me lots of space to write. Now we’re just waiting for the baby to be born so that I can add his or her name to the pieced label I’ve made for the little quilt.”

The label, just waiting for the baby’s name to be written on it along with other details and then appliquéd on to the back.

Rose Star Table Topper

Glenda made this pretty table topper using the Inklingo 12″ Rose Star collection.

She writes:

“I used the 12-inch Rose Star pattern from Inklingo to create my table runner. Although it is a ‘one-patch’ pattern, there is an option to use hexagons for parts of the design. I used my 2″ hexagons and the ‘kite’ pattern piece from the 12-inch Rose Star collection to create my Rose Stars. Rather than making a long table runner with the blocks lined up end to end, I chose to create one that was shorter and wider for my oval table. I used large diamond shapes on the four corner areas to create the elongated hexagon shape of the runner. The table runner was both hand and machine pieced, then machine quilted. It was fun and I think it created a unique project.”
