Diamond Wall Hanging

Ink_Stars2_small

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.”

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.”

Diamond Stars

Sarah has made this pretty top using Inklingo Collection 3.

She writes:

“It is based on the Sapphires in a Field of Gold pattern in the Shape Collection #3 book, but I was feeling lazy (and was in a hurry) and didn’t want to print as many shapes as the original design was made with.  So I modified it to use just 3 shapes and one colour per shape. The tiny outside triangles are just trimmed down from the diamonds that I had already printed. All of the shapes were printed from Shape Collection #3.”

Pieced Hexagons

Jeannette made this fabulous pieced hexagon quilt using Inklingo Collection 3, the Inklingo 3″ 60-degree Diamond Collection and the Inklingo 300 Pieced Hexagons Design Book.

She writes:

“This is a picture of my 6″ hexies quilt from the 300 Hexies book. I used the 1.5″ and .75″ pieces from Collection 3 with the triangles from the 3″ Diamond Collection. The quilt measures 51″ x 67″. I’m very pleased with it. I have wanted to make one like this for a long time. I am unsure how to quilt it at the moment so I am open to suggestions.”

Congratulations, Jeannette. It’s a beauty! This is such a fabulous example of some of the great pieced hexagons one can make using Inklingo collections.

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!

Baby Stars

Barb made this adorable baby quilt using the star points and hexagons in Inklingo Collection 3.

She writes:

“Hand pieced while on vacation in my hubby’s little apartment in Montreal.  I pieced all the stars while there.  And then it took me several months to finish once I got back home and life took over my quilting time!  But I loved piecing the little stars and have great memories of listening to audio books while stitching!  Inklingo is the best for inset seams!”

Addy’s Quilt – more Insanity


Lorraine in MI is working on an Insanity version with her sister-in-law. They are using the 0.75″ hexagons (rather than the 0.50″ ones the original pattern calls for). She writes :

We have more borders to add, but had to share our progress. This is for my SiLaw’s granddaughter who loves red, stars and hearts.

There are not words to describe what a pleasure this project has been! Inklingo has made it a breeze to print and send and share in the stitching!
There are 3 more children needing heirloom quilts and we already have plans for those…all using Inklingo!
