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.”

Cat Kaleidoscope Stars

Kris is making fabulous kaleidoscope stars using the 1.5″ 60-degree diamond Inklingo collection.

Kris writes:

“After seeing the kaleidoscope stars on the All About Inklingo and Quilt Obsession blogs, I decided to try some of my own. I’m using the 1.5″ diamonds and hand piecing. Inklingo made it easy to print identical sheets with little to no waste. I found this method better than having to line up fabric repeats and stacking to cut. The most difficult part of this process was finding the right fabric. I chose this cat fabric as practice before investing in more yardage, but I love the way my stars turned out.”

Who could help but loving how these stars turned out!

I think a close-up of a few of these wonderful stars is called for.

And here’s the big surprise – these wonderful stars all came from this fabric. Doing kaleidoscope stars is so, so easy with the no waste fussy printing/cutting Inklingo technique.

Mug Rug

20140207_163548

Frummie made this pretty mug rug using shapes from Inklingo CD #3.

She writes:

“This pieced 3″ hexagon was made using CD #3. It was hand pieced and machine appliquéd. The mug rug is approximately 8″ x 8″ and was machine quilted. The binding was attached by machine and hand stitched down with the ladder stitch. I was taught the ladder stitch by my 2 grandmothers. That was the only stitch I could use to attach 2 pieces of fabric. I was taught by using white thread on black fabric. Practice makes perfect.”
