More Morse Stars


Kathy in Nashville is also making Morse Stars using the 9″ Inklingo Star collection along with the free Diamond-Triangle-Square Inklingo collection.


Kathy gets fabulous special effects with fussy cutting/printing on fabric! Just look at this second Morse Star she has made.

She writes that, “They are fun blocks to make!” And she is so right – particularly when they turn out so spectacularly!

Morse Stars/Inklingo Stars



Cathi in Toronto has been making Morse Stars  using the 9″ Inklingo Star collection along with the free Diamond-Triangle-Square Inklingo collection.


“Linda had been showing some blocks she was making with the new Inklingo Star collection on the Inklingo Facebook page before the collection was released. One of them was named the Morse Star and the second I saw it, I was intrigued and knew I had to make it. As soon as the collection was released, I asked Barb at Just Sayin Sew if she wanted to make blocks from the new collection and simul-blog about them. The Morse Star finishes at 18″ and is great fun to stitch. I hybrid-pieced the block by machine piecing the triangle square corners and hand piecing the rest. It is an absolutely addictive block to stitch! But I couldn’t stop there. I had to make one of the other 9″ stars that are possible with the shapes in the Inklingo Star collection.

Fussy cutting/printing the kites for these blocks really is fun and makes for some great special effects!”

More Inklingo Star Fun (13)

Barb in Texas has been making some fabulous stars using the 9″ Inklingo Star collection along with the free Inklingo Diamond-Triangle-Square collection .

She wrote:

“I made these blocks after Cathi at Quilt Obsession challenged me on a Saturday to make one and post it on my blog by Monday. And we ‘simul-blogged’ (Cathi’s new word and I love it).  How could I resist making a block called Inklingo Star anyway? Only little did I know it would become my new addiction. I love making these stars! The kites are so fun to fussy cut/print and stitch. Who knows how big this quilt will become?”

A little fussy cutting/printing and some fabulous effects are to be had as Barb’s stars really emphasize.

Colourful Mug Rug

My-new-mug-rug1Tammy in Virginia made this cheerful and bright mug rug using the free Inklingo Diamond, Triangles, Square collection.

She writes:

“I am new to Inklingo and just finished my first mug rug. I used the free set to try out the technique and I am sold on Inklingo.”


Cardinal Mug Rug


Sandy made this wonderful wintry mug rug using the Inklingo Free Diamond, Triangles, Square collection.

She writes:

“Over the Christmas season, I made this for a swap in a quilt forum. The star on the right side was made using Inklingo Diamond/Triangles/Square collection. I used scraps from my fabric stash. The star points are left overs from the carpenters wheel quilt top made from the same collection. I paired it with a hand drawn/painted block. It’s a rather large mug rug about 12″ long by 6″ wide. It’s hand pieced and hand quilted. I was trying to make this special for my swap mate. She loves cardinals.”

Brown and Pink LeMoyne Stars

Beth in Arkansas made this pretty little quilt using the Inklingo Diamond, Triangle, Square free shape collection.

She writes:

“This is my first Inklingo project ready for quilting. It is hard to see in the picture, but the border is a brown and black stripe. It was made with the free shape collection. I am definitely hooked and have already cut out a bunch of pieces for a Patchwork of the Crosses!”

“Somewhere Out There”

Judy M. made this quilt called “Somewhere Out There” using the Inklingo Free Diamond, Triangle Square Collection, the Inklingo Dresden Plate Fancy Pieced Collection and the Inklingo Tumbler Collection.

She writes:

“Attached is a photo of one of two matching quilts that I made for two DGS’s (cousins). The original quilt was called ‘Somewhere Out There’ and was projected to be published in installments in the e-zine Cotton Spice. Only the first installment was published before the e-zine went out of business. I was entranced with the design so worked it up in EQ (and found in the process that the original one was probably designed in EQ also as all the blocks used had the same name as blocks in EQ).

After I finished the Snail’s Trail blocks, I started on the ‘star’ blocks using templates for the LeMoyne Star. After a false start, I decided to use Inklingo to make the block and then decided to make all the star blocks using various patterns of Inklingo.”

 “This is the jpg of the EQ file with the original star blocks. You can see that I changed all the stars. Some were from the original LeMoyne Star (free set), two were from the Dresden Plate Fancy Pieced and one is Cathi’s Tumbler Star. The other major difference is the fabric border rather than the pieced border in the EQ version. I found a fabric with what looked like a map of the constellations and, since both boys were under 10 years old, felt as if the pieced border would not be necessary.”
Judy’s version of this quilt is a beauty! And a great illustration of how easy it is to amend patterns so that you can use Inklingo collections. Let’s hope that soon the pattern designers start including Inklingo directions in their patterns!
The Tumbler Star pattern is free to download at the Inklingo website.

LeMoyne Table Topper

Patti has made this pretty LeMoyne Table Topper using the Inklingo Free Diamond, Triangle, Square collection and the pattern from Erin Klein which is available free to members of the Inklingo Yahoo group.

She writes:

“This is the piece I submitted for the guild challenge. I even told them they could enter if it wasn’t finished. I didn’t want to bind mine as I wanted to find more of the same fabric from Fabricland that I had used to make it. Unfortunately, it is discontinued and I have haunted numerous Fabriclands in Ontario to check out their clearance shelves. I couldn’t find the one I wanted but did find enough of a slightly different colourway that I may over-dye to do the rest of a suitable top…”

Blues Star Quilt

Lorraine is making this pretty blue and white star quilt using the free diamond, square and triangle Inklingo collection and the on-point triangles for 4.5 inch blocks Inklingo collection.

She writes:

“This is the second cooperative Inklingo quilt project done with my sister-in-law.  We used the free collection and the on-point triangles for 4.5” blocks collection. This is Linda’s design, shared on the All About Inklingo blog when the on-point triangle collection was first made available.

It is all hand pieced and each star is different. This quilt is being made for my great nephew.”

This picture shows a close-up of a few of the stars. Perhaps Lorraine and her sister-in-law did a little fussy cutting/printing to get some special effects.


Star Quilt

Cathi made this star quilt using the shapes in the free diamond, square, triangle Inklingo collection.

It was inspired by a quilt I saw online. I just started stitching together more and more rounds of diamonds and squares until it got to the point I thought it was large enough. Then I started adding squares at the corners. Then a couple of borders, some pieced, and it was finished or so I thought. Now I’ve decided to add one more plain border.
