Sunflower Quilt

Kathy in Nashville made this spectacular sunflower quilt using the Inklingo 6″ Sunflower collection, 12″ Sunflower collection, the 6″ LeMoyne Star collection and shapes from the Inklingo CD #1, CD #2 and CD #3 collections.

She writes:

“This is my sunflower quilt. My original design. It is totally hand pieced. I used the 6″ and 12″ Sunflower, the 6″ LeMoyne Star and shapes from the three Inklingo CD collections. I added other patches of ‘odd’ sizes and a little appliqué. It is a big quilt and I don’t have a better place to photograph it. It still needs to be quilted.”

Take a look at the LeMoyne Stars and the effects Kathy got with some fussy cutting. Absolutely stunning!

Pink and Cream Star

Cathi made this pink and cream star quilt using the 45-degree diamonds in the 6″ LeMoyne Star Inklingo collection.

It was inspired by a picture of an antique quilt I saw in the Quilts, A Beautiful History book. I love the look of two-colour quilts.  Once I had decided I was going to make this, I had my shapes printed and was stitching within no time. Thanks to the perfect stitching lines and matching points, my large and small stars went together perfectly. Hand pieced and still waiting to be quilted.

Passacaglia


Tilde finished her Passacaglia-top.

It stalled for a long sewing-drought, but now it’s finished. I used the 6″ LeMoyne star collection all the way through, but it can be made just as easily with the Free Collection.
There is a (general) FREE pattern for how to make it with the FREE collection right here. Inspiration for this quilt was found in ‘The Quilts of Lucy Boston’ by Diane Boston.
Hand- and Machine-pieced.
Finished size : 72 x 96″

Another sort of Lucy Boston style quilt


Tilde is having a ball making this style of block from a picture in “The Patchworks of Lucy Boston“.

She is using the 6″ LeMoyne star collection and the blocks finish at 12″.
It is, however, possible to make the blocks with the free collection. They will then finish at 9″

In the book, this quilt is called “Passacaglia

Hybrid-pieced star

Martha made this one using the 6″ LeMoyne Star collection. She writes :

Stayed up past my bedtime and finished this block from the six inch Inklingo collection. It finishes at 12 inches and is machine and hand pieced.
I machine pieced the center until I came to the light green pieces in the outer ring of diamonds and then I found it easier to do the y-seams by hand.
