Baskets and Flowers

DSC00567

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″.”

Miniature Basket Block Quilt Top

IMG_9347wtmk

Cathi made this miniature 12″ quilt top using the Inklingo 3″ Baskets collection.

Piecing the little handles on these tiny blocks was a pure delight – thanks to the wonderful printed shapes of Inklingo! The perfect stitching lines and matching points make miniatures so much more fun. And making a little quilt top like this is like dessert – a nice interlude after working on a large project before starting or finishing another large project. I love that the many collections of Inklingo give us such a wonderful variety!

I’m very tempted to eventually make a lap quilt of nothing but 3″ baskets with every basket made from a different fabric. I can easily cut a little piece of fabric to print the shapes I need for a basket every time I’m cutting fabric for another project. Quickly press to freezer paper, print and put those shapes away in a project box to work on as and when I want – for me that’s another huge reason to love Inklingo.
