Drunkard's Path

Mary made this stunning batik version of a Drunkard's Path using (surprise !) the Drunkard's Path collection.

Size of quilt is 36 * 45"

Round Hexagon bag

Elly made this great little bag. She writes :
The pattern was from the book "21 terrific patchwork bags" by Susan Briscoe. I made it using Inklingo shape collection 1, using the 1" hexagon + halves and diamond. It turned out slightly bigger than the pattern in the book since the hexes in that are 7/8" size... but that was okay since it gave a bigger bag :) It was quite easy to adjust.

The finished size of my bag is 8.5" in diameter. I used a suitable sized plate to make the circle background.. (bear in mind you need 1/2" seam allowance all round) and appliqued the Inklingo panels to it. The pattern says to hand quilt but I was in a hurry so machine quilted (it will be stronger for it too).

Going quietly dotty

Tilde made these two placemats using the Drunkard's Path collection. She writes.

It is amazing to me to see how much difference an appliqueed circle makes to the graphic impression of the DP-block. I used the 1.5" circle that comes with both the 0.5" hexagon and the 0.5" diamond collection.

Size of each placemat is approximately 12 * 18"

Cathi made this mini quilt using the Drunkard's Path collection.

It was made for a blog swap of mini monochromatic quilts. The only thing added was some half-inch sashing to make the window panes. It finishes at approximately 18.5" square.

Another Apple Core mini bag

Kathi made the little purse from Tilde's pattern.

I made longer handles and added a tie to close though. It was fun!! It was also the first purse I have ever made!

Jane Austen coaster

Tilde made this little coaster using shapes from the Jane Austen collection.
She writes :
You can make other things than "just" a big quilt with this collection.
Size of one side is just shy of 3", and it is big enough for a nice mug of tea.
Please note the wildlife fabric. I couldn't resist using the romantic colours and then zebra stripes and alligator leather :-)

She shares the pattern with the Inklingo group at Yahoo.

Kimono Garden

Rebecca designed and made this wallhanging as a fundraiser. You can read more about it on her own blog.

Size of project is approximately 40 * 42" and the hexagons used are from collection # 1 and finish at 1".

Hybrid-pieced star

Martha made this one using the 6" LeMoyne Star collection. She writes :

Stayed up past my bedtime and finished this block from the six inch Inklingo collection. It finishes at 12 inches and is machine and hand pieced.
I machine pieced the center until I came to the light green pieces in the outer ring of diamonds and then I found it easier to do the y-seams by hand.

Triangles wall-hanging

Teresa made this cute raspberry and chocolate (white, AND dark) -coloured quilt.
She writes :
This quilt is made with Collection 2 using 2" HST. I added a 3" border. The squares are set 8 X 9 so the finished size is 22" X 24". I made it for a raffle prize for a function at our quilt guild.

It was easy to put together, thanks to Inklingo, but hard to give away. I must make another for myself.
