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.

Octagon Star

Cathi made this block using the 6" LeMoyne Star collection.

The octagon star finishes at 12". Shapes used are the diamonds, small squares and 2.5" QST's contained in that collection.

Circle of Swallows

Sandy made this great block. She writes :
I used the free collection to make this "Circle of swallows" block, it is 11" unfinished.

Below is a picture of the component parts before joining.

Round Dance

Tilde made this "Round Dance" block. It is based on the general idea of the Square Dance block.
She writes :
I used the corner unit from the Apple Core collection, for the individual bits. The downside of this is, that you get twice as many as you need, because you can only use one corner for the block. The upside is, that you can make two mirror-image blocks at the same time.

Size of block : 10" square

St. Patricks Day

SallieJean made this cute St. Pat's block applique'ing the hexagon shapes to the background fabric.

She writes : I used the 1.5" hexagon from Shape Collection #3. The background measures 12.5" and the hexagon piece measures 9.5" top to bottom and 10" side to side at the widest areas.

Medallion Crib Quilt

Linda made this pretty crib-quilt. Here's what she writes :

I used Shape Collection 2 for the pinwheels. The free LeMoyne Star for the corners and other methods for the rest, though I think all the other piecing could have been done with Shape Collection 2, I just hadn't purchased it yet.

Size is 41" square.

Grandmother's Starry Flower Garden

Charlsey made this starry top.

She writes: "The hexagon quilt was hand pieced using Inklingo collection #3 - 3/4" hexagons. There are over 2,900 hexagons forming an 8-pointed star. It is a replica of an 1860 quilt. I made the quilt using a 2-1/2 x 3 picture from an antique quilting book. It will have an applique border like the original."

Whirling Arches

Cathi made this Whirling Arches block using the 12-inch Drunkard's Path collection.
