Inklingo Projects

By Inklingo Quilters, For Everyone


Octagon Stars

Cathi made this miniature quilt using the .75″ 45-degree diamonds from the 6″ Hunter’s Star Inklingo collection and the .75″ octagon and square from the .75″ Octagon collection.

I was inspired by a photo of an antique quilt which was sent to me by a friend. I wanted to make a doll quilt for a friend who has an antique doll bed and this was the perfect design for it. I named it Candy Stars. It finished at 20″ x 26″ and contains 941 pieces. Hand pieced and machine quilted.

Between Sunrise and Sunset

Carol made this beautiful quilt, which she has called “Between Sunrise and Sunset.”

She writes:

“I used the Inklingo 1.5” 90-degree hexagon shape collection.  I didn’t follow a pattern – it is my own design. It is hand pieced except for the borders.

I have entered it in the Quiltfest 2013 show in Jacksonville, Florida.”


An Inklingo Dog

Val made this cute dog, she writes :

It was made with the 1 inch squares from the swap that we did awhile ago. (on the Inklingo-list on Yahoo)

The inspiration for this came from the Scrap Quilts issue from McCalls. Theirs was much larger.

He is coloured squares on both sides but the neutrals form the gusset to make him 3D. Very cute and made in about 3 hours mostly on the machine.

Christmas quilt

Kathy made this wonderful quilt. She writes :
The Christmas Quilt is 48 x 48. I made it out of Xmas 3″ noodles that we swapped in my guild. It is made from Inklingo #3 . I made the center from Linda’s pattern in the book and then just started playing adding borders. I gave it to my DMIL on Mother’s Day. The only fabric I bought for this quilt was the stripe for that border–every thing else was from scraps.

Pincushion # 3

Sue made this pincushion from the same pattern as this one

She writes :
“Here is my little pincushion. Obviously, it did not turn out like the directions said it would – if I did it right. LOL However, I think it is cute. I used the 1” squares from collection #1. I will make another one – until I get it right! “

Well, I think this one looks pretty right too. Just different 🙂

This small pincushion is made by Tilde. It uses 15 1″ squares from collection #1. The two sides are shown here.
You can use larger squares and get a larger pincushion.
Maybritt has a tutorial on her blog. Disregard her directions for using thin cardboard and English Paper-piecing, you don’t need that with Inklingo 🙂

The only thing I would do in preparation (apart from printing the shapes), is to iron down the seam-allowance on the last seam sown, so that it is easy to sewn down to the others, once the pincushion is stuffed.
I used wool-rowing to stuff it.

Val made this cute little pincushion.
She used the 1″ hexagon (2 in all) and the 1″ squares (6 in all) found in Collection # 1. As you can see, the hexagons are fussy-cut to centre the fish on the top. You can do this, by printing the shape without seam-allowance, on freezer-paper, and then cut and mark the traditional way.
