Red and White Schoolhouse


Jeannette made this fabulous red and white School House quilt using the Inklingo 9″ School House collection.

She writes:

“I used the 9″ School House collection for this quilt. Some houses were hand pieced and some were machined. The border is made of 2″ HSTs. I hand quilted the Baptist Fan design on this and I love the way it turned out. It measures 65″ x 55″.”

Red and White School House


Jeannette made this fabulous red and white school house quilt using shapes from three Inklingo collections – the 9″ School House, the 1″ Log Cabin and the HST OOB collection.

She writes:

“Here’s a picture of my house quilt that I have finally managed to put together. I made the blocks 10 inches by using two of the 10″ x 1″ pieces from the Log cabin collection. The quilt measures 56″x66″ and was hybrid pieced. The border was made using 1.75″ HSTs.”

Jeannette gave a very detailed description of how she was making her house blocks in the first post about them posted here as “Red and White Houses.”


Miniature Churn Dash


Sandy made this fabulous miniature Churn Dash quilt using the Inklingo Log Cabin .50″ and Half Square Triangles OOB collections.

She writes:

“My Prairie Women’s Sewing Circle meets once a month at Quilt Heaven in Lambertville, Michigan. One of the projects is a miniature churn dash quilt with embroidered leaves and stems and button flowers. The instructions for this block use traditional methods of cutting and piecing. I have never been able to make my mini quilts come out right using this method, unless I foundation piece and that is so cumbersome. So lucky for me, Linda has created Inklingo! I searched through the Inklingo Index of Shapes and found I could make the churn dash blocks using Log Cabin .50″ and Half Square Triangles OOB. I can’t begin to tell you how thrilled I was to discover this. 🙂 Each block is three inches finished. I added 1/4 inch vertical sashing and 1/2 inch horizontal sashing plus borders. The mini finishes at 14.75″ x 18″. The entire mini was made using fabrics and items from my stash. It is hand pieced and hand quilted. The leaves and stems are hand embroidered. The buttons are 3 mm.”


This close-up shows the incredible detail in one little 3″ Churn Dash block.


Pinwheels & Twirlies

Pinwheels and twirlies1

Mary just finished this absolutely gorgeous top using the Inklingo Dresden Plate Fancy Pieced collection and one of the Inklingo Half-Square Triangle collections.

She writes:

“I used the Fancy Dresden collection, 12” and the 1” HST. I machine pieced everything except the two circles in the center of the Twirlies which were appliquéd. The pattern is by Susan Garman which she adapted from an antique quilt by Fanny Tod.   “

Dresden Plate, Flying Geese, HST – Oh, My!

Jeannette in Australia made this wonderful quilt using the Dresden Plate Fancy Pieced collection, Collection 2 and HSTs.

She writes:

“I made this quilt for my sister-in-law Barbara after she saw the blocks and said how much she liked them. There are only 9 blocks, but each one is 24″ square.  The centre is the 15″ Farmers Fancy from the Dresden Plate Fancy Pieced Inklingo collection and the Flying Geese are 3″ x 1.5″.  The other blocks were made using 3.25″ HSTs from Collection 2 and squares that I cut myself.  It is hand and machine pieced and machine quilted.”

And here’s a close-up of the beautiful centre Farmers Fancy block.


Miniature Feathered Star

Nancy in Alabama made this beauty.
She writes :

A couple of weeks ago I took a wonderful class taught by Marsha McCloskey sponsored by my quilt guild.  During the class we learned how to draft a feathered star.  I kept thinking I wanted to do a miniature version.  When the class ended I drafted a half inch feathered star.  

I found appropriate shapes in the 0.5″ Log Cabin, 9″ Storm at Sea, 6.75″ Storm at Sea, and HST 00B collections.  Using Inklingo made piecing the little star easy and gave me the accuracy I needed.  The little quilt is 11.5″ square.


Stars on the table

Sue in Western New York state has finished a table-cloth using Inklingo. She writes :

The fabrics were in a package that I purchased at Quilt Market last fall.
The fabric is from Darlene Zimmermans Clothesline Club by Robert Kaufman. The kit is called Blue Ribbon Winner it is 60″ square. I pieced the flying geese with Inklingo collection #2 – making the flying geese come perfect!
The instructions for the flying geese/star points is on page 66 of the Inklingo Handbook.

And a note : Collection # 2 is sold out, but you can make equally precise and easy Flying Geese with the 00B HST collection, which is downloadable and available 🙂

Wedding Signature Quilt

Pat B from NY also made this wonderful Wedding Sinature quilt.

She writes :
I used Collection 2 to print all the triangles on the signature-quilt. The block patterns came from two different patterns in McCall’s Quilting.

Editor’s Note : “Collection 2” is a sold-out collection on CD. Most of the shapes, however, are found in the HST and QST 00B collections, which are downloadable.


Pickled Clamshells

Jeannette from South Australia is (once again !) quietly finishing one beautiful quilt after another. This one with Pickled Clams and Flying Geese.
Jeannette writes :
The Clams are all hand pieced and the Flying Geese are machine pieced. The Geese measure 1.5 x 3″. I used 1.5″ HST from Collection 2 [ed. sold out, but the 1.5″ HST is in the 00B HST collection too] and 4.25″ unprinted squares for the Geese, and 9″ Pickle Clamshells.
I am very happy with the way it all went together. It was easy peasy.

Size of quilt 49.5 x 63″
