Morse Stars/Inklingo Stars



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!”



Diamond Wall Hanging


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.”

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!”

Baby X’s and O’s


Cathi made this baby quilt she’s named Baby X’s and O’s using the Inklingo Spool 7.5″/Japanese X collection and the Inklingo Bigger Circles collection. The label for the little quilt was made using the Inklingo 60-degree 2″ hexagon collection.

“I made this quilt almost totally by machine. I started out hand piecing and finished one block. I then realized how much quicker it would be were I to piece it by machine. I decided to emphasize the X effect when choosing my fabric placement.

The top had sat for quite some time until very good friends told us they were about to become grandparents for the first time. Out came the little top and I machine quilted it, again emphasizing the X in the design. After looking at it for a while, I felt it still needed something so decided to add the circles. I used the 3.125″ circles and appliquéd them on to the top, again in an X formation.

I like to make a pieced label that incorporates some fabric used in the quilt. One of my favourite labels to make is a 2″ hexagon surrounded by other half hexagons as the 2″ hexagon gives me lots of space to write. Now we’re just waiting for the baby to be born so that I can add his or her name to the pieced label I’ve made for the little quilt.”


The label, just waiting for the baby’s name to be written on it along with other details and then appliquéd on to the back.


Pinwheels & Twirlies

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.   “


Celtic Solstice

Cathie D. is making the Celtic Solstice mystery quilt using the Inklingo Celtic Solstice collection.

She writes:

“I have really appreciated being able to use Inklingo’s Celtic Solstice collection for the 2013 Bonnie Hunter Celtic Solstice mystery quilt. Using Inklingo allowed me to try out some different methods of construction by machine that I hadn’t done before. I think by far my favourite way to Inklingo this project was the Bird in the Air unit. I loved that using Inklingo eliminated cutting and sewing on fussy little triangles and having lines kept me on track with my seams. I learned to do that scant 1/4 inch seam even better with the line there to use as my guide.

Although I have quite a few blocks to construct, I am well on my way to a beautiful quilt thanks to Bonnie and Linda with assistance from Monkey!”
