Stars in the Castle Wall


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.









Doll Bed Runner


Cathi made this miniature bed runner for a friend’s antique doll bed using the .75″ 45-degree diamonds from the Inklingo 6-inch Hunter’s Star Collection and the .75″ square and QST from the .75″ Octagon Collection.

A friend sent me a picture of her antique doll bed and I immediately knew I had to make a tiny bed runner for it. As soon as I saw the 45-degree diamonds in the 6-inch Hunter’s Star collection, I knew exactly what I was making. Each little star finished at 2.5″. The bed runner is made up of three rows of nine blocks and finished at 22.5″ x 7.5″. I’ve always been drawn to and loved making blocks with tiny pieces. Inklingo makes it so much more fun to make miniature quilts – as well as large ones!



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.”


Circle of Swallows quilt

Jeannette from South Australia made this great quilt with the Circle of Swallows block.

She writes :

here is a picture of my latest quilt. It is made with the free Lemoyne Star and 3″ hst’s from Collection 2.

I hand pieced the blocks and joined them together with my machine.
The white background is stipple quilted and the border is a geometric design formed from the shape of the triangles.
It is machine quilted.
The quilt measures 41″x51″ and the blocks are 10″x10″ finished. .

Mary Ellen made this wonderful wall-hanging, using the Free Collection. She writes :

I finished a 25″ square wall-hanging this morning. I hand pieced and hand quilted the diamonds from the Free Collection, and used the four sacred colours of the Lakota tribes : white, black, red and yellow.

I’m calling it “Pilamaya” which means “thank you” in Lakota.

Pilamaya will be sent to the tour guide who recently accompanied a group of senior citizens to some of the western US states.

… all I can say is “Lucky Tour guide” 🙂
