New Button ! and a give-away.

We have a new button on the right side margin.
If you want to add the button to your web-page, or want to replace the old one with the new, copy the html-code, and insert where you want the button.
It should work :-)

And then the give-away : Linda and Tilde have been collaborating on a new free pattern for the free Inklingo collection ! To celebrate that, and the season, they have a give-away. Go check their blogs to see what it is about.

Orange Peel Deluxe

Cathi used the Orange Peel Deluxe collection to make this Alabama Beauty block.

The curves are very gentle which makes for very enjoyable stitching.

With the new Orange Peel Deluxe collection, Cathi made this Improved 9-Patch block.

It finishes at 8". It's an absolute breeze to stitch curves with the wonderful matching points.

China Plates - POTC

Cathi couldn't resist making some China plates using the collection of larger POTC hexagons (1.5"), squares and QST's.

Jane Austen Patchwork

Martha has started another quilt using shapes from the Jane Austen Patchwork collection.

She writes: "I was overcome by the need to make something big so ... my spoonflower fabric and the large diamond from the Jane Austen inklingo collection. I think I will do some machine appliqué in the corners."

Jane Austen quilt

Linda in NY has been busy with the Jane Austen collection. She writes :

I loved making this. I actually made 2 for twin beds in my guest room and they are identical. I am still deciding what I want for borders. I machine pieced this and particularly enjoyed placing each diamond to maximize the symmetrical effect. I did fussy cut the fabrics that were suited to fussy cutting.

Double Wedding Ring Table Topper

Ruby finished this cute, cute, cute DWR table-topper.

Makes me long for spring !

Tumbling Blocks / Baby Blocks

Sue has fallen for the new 3" diamond-shapes (Inklingo Lite # 7) and has started a Tumbling Blocks project.

She writes :

These were sewn on the machine and went together so easily. The tumbler blocks are not sewn to each other as I will continue to add many more. Really like the way they look.

Double Wedding Ring wall-hanging

Lois shares her DWR in progress.
She writes :
It is all musical prints and will be wall hanging when done. I wish I were sending finished project but no time right now. I love DWR and putting it together is so easy with Inklingo.

Well, I for one look forward to seeing the finished project, Lois !

Another Apple Core mini bag

Elly won a kit to make this bag when we had the Great Inklingo Give-Away, and has now finished it.

Looking good, Elly !

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.
