Stars in the Castle Wall

15065658792_f1f979035a_o

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.

Special Effects in the Castle Wall

photo (72)

Cathy in Tennessee is making these absolutely spectacular blocks using the Inklingo 9″ Castle Wall collection and one of the bonus shapes in that collection to achieve the kaleidoscope effect in the centres of her Castle Wall blocks.

She writes:

“I started this project just shortly after the collection became available, so I have been working on it around one month. I have 16 blocks completed and I just had to see how it was ‘shaping’ up, so I put them all down and took a photo. I have a way to go – my original intention was to make 81 blocks. Not sure if I will get that far with it, but I am really enjoying the process.

This is the 9″ inch collection, which I chose for the option of piecing the centre octagon in ‘kaleidoscope’ style.”

If you click on the picture to enlarge it, you can see the fabulous effects Cathy is getting with the kaleidoscope octagons.

Owl in the Castle

Castle Wall Owl block_232919-1Tammy is making some Castle Wall blocks using the Inklingo 9″ Castle Wall collection and is fussy cutting the centre octagon.

She writes:

“Just finished my first Castle Wall block. I chose an owl that I fussy cut as I love owls. My son had given me a gift certificate at Christmas from Joann Fabrics and I chose this fat quarter set and was saving it for a project. Being that I have a hard time matching colors this set was color coordinated and thought it would be perfect to use in this block as I like bright colors. I can’t say enough how much I love Inklingo!”
