Stars in the Castle Wall

15065658792_f1f979035a_o

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.

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.

Jeannette made this gorgeous quilt using the 1″ kite from the Inklingo 12″ Rose Star collection and hexagons from the Inklingo 60-degree 2″ hexagon collection.

She writes:

“This year I decided I had better make some of the quilt tops I have made into quilts. I used the 1″ kite from the 12″ Rose Star collection and 2″ hexagons. I fussy cut the butterflies in the centres. It is hand pieced and machine quilted using a serpentine stitch down the length of the quilt. The quilt measures 53″ x 79″.”

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!”

Pickle Dish Quilt

007

Lorraine and her sister-in-law have made this gorgeous Pickle Dish quilt using the Inklingo 12″ Pickle Dish collection.

Lorraine writes:

“This is actually a queen-sized top, all hand pieced. We used the Pickle Dish 12″ collection. It took about 1 year to piece and is quilt number 3 of 4 being made for grandchildren. I did the printing and a bit of the stitching. My sister-in-law, 1,500 miles away, did the most of the stitching. Love, love, love Inklingo!!!”
