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!”

Inklingo Star

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.

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.”

Baskets and Flowers

Jeannette has made this pretty basket and flowers quilt using the Inklingo 6″ basket collection for the basket blocks.

She writes:

“I made this quilt using the 6″ basket block. The baskets were all hand pieced. I made the flower panels and blanket stitched around the flowers by machine. This was a quilt as you go project. I stipple quilted around each basket and echo quilted the full length of each flower panel before joining them together. The quilt measures 50″ x 70″.”

Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses

IMG_7939

Silmara is making some absolutely stunning Patchwork of the Crosses blocks using the Inklingo 90-degree 1″ hexagon collection.

She writes:

“In order to make the Lucy Boston quilt I need 56 blocks. Now I’m up to 20 blocks. I’m almost there … LOL. I’m making the blocks using Inklingo because I consider it the perfect way to make these and other patchwork blocks. I also decided to make the first corner as I’ve shown below. This is a quilt that I don’t want to make in a hurry. Each block is an exercise of creativity and a pleasure to discover the possibilities of what we can do with fabrics.”

Lots of pictures in this post and another that will publish on Tuesday, so be sure to come back then. You do not want to miss any of these beauties. First the block with the corner.

It’s fabulous to see the special effects Silmara has achieved with a little fussy cutting/printing.  So keep scrolling down to see more of these fabulous blocks.

Periwinkle Quilt

Periwinkle Quilt

Deb is making a gorgeous periwinkle quilt using the Inklingo 1.32″ Periwinkle Octagon collection.

She writes:

“Just wanted to share my progress, be it slow, on my periwinkle quilt. I am hand piecing it. I did machine piece my green kites, however. It is basically my travelling project, so I don’t know how long it will take to finish – but it is slow and steady. Thanks so much to Linda – the ease and accuracy is so much fun!”

Texas Tumbler

image2

Sandy is making a fabulous top that she’s named Texas Tumbler using the Inklingo 2″ 60-degree diamond collection, the Inklingo 1″ 60-degree hexagon collection and the Inklingo 60-degree star point add-on 1.0/2.0 collection.

She writes:

“Texas Tumbler began because I wanted to use my fabric scraps. I have lots of little pieces here and there that are left from other projects and I have this need to use what I have – making do. I love the look of tumbling blocks so I started with Inklingo 2 inch Diamond Collection and made the Tumbling Blocks. I have a Canon MG5420 printer that I purchased on sale and it works wonderfully with custom sizes so I can print various diamonds on various pieces of scrap fabric. I printed on scraps and put like colors together – light, medium, dark – to make my tumbling blocks. After I’d hand pieced a number of them, I put them up on my design wall, stepped back, taking a good look and discovered I just didn’t like the look of it. For me they needed something.

I was already making Texas Stars from Inklingo Star Point Collection and Inklingo Hexagons, so I started combining the Texas Stars with the Tumbling Blocks in various combinations. I finally decided on a neutral Texas Star in between the Tumbling Blocks and came up with my Texas Tumbler. This quilt top is still in the design stage. What I have so far is the center. I will probably be adding something neutral all around…maybe more Texas Stars to allow for more focus on the Tumbling Blocks. I still have lots of neutral scraps of fabric…or I just may have to dip into my stash. I have lots of neutrals in my stash too.”

Kaleidoscope Texas Star Fish Quilt Top

TSF1

Sandra is making this fabulous kaleidoscope Texas Star Fish quilt using the Inklingo .50″/1.00″ Star Point collection, the Inklingo 1″ 60-degree hexagon collection, the Inklingo .50″ 60-degree hexagon collection, the Inklingo 2″ 60-degree diamond collection and diamonds and triangles from the Inklingo 1″ 60-degree diamond collection.

A few of the stars made with the .50″ 60-degree hexagons and the star points.

And the back of one, on which you can see the stitching lines and how flat it presses.

Sandra writes:

“Texas Star Fish started out with a colourful fish fabric that has a 12″ repeat.

Using the Inklingo .05″/1″ Star Point collection, I printed out 6 carefully placed sheets. This gave me enough for 35 stars. I will use 32 of them. The extras can be turned into a nice mug rug some day.

To surround the stars plus make this into a rectangular top, I discovered I needed and so printed 68 of the 1″ 60-degree hexagons in a light cream colour. For the star centres, I printed 32 .50″ 60-degree hexagons.

Sixteen 2″ 60-degree diamonds in a light cream and 14 2″ 60-degree diamonds in a darker cream were pieced with 15 half 2″ 60-degree diamonds in light cream to make a linear top and bottom.

To the line the right and left sides, I used a combination of 1″ 60-degree diamonds and 1″ triangles (both in the 1″ 60-degree diamond collection) and half 1″ 60-degree hexagons.

My build-up for the right and left sides required 18 half 1″ 60-degree hexagons in cream, 6 1″ 60-degree diamonds in the fish fabric and 22 1″ triangles in a dark beige.”

This picture gives us a great look at how Sandra has used all those shapes to turn this into a fabulous small quilt top.

The wonderfully colourful and fun fabric that became the kaleidoscope star points.
