Tea Roses

Tilde has finished a hexagon top, using the 0.75" shapes from Collection 3.
Size of top : 48 x 66"

It was a fun quilt to make, and making hexagon flowers as rectangular blocks made the joining of them very easy.

Yin Yang Blocks

Cathi of Quilt Obsession is working on two quilts using the YinYang shape collection.

The Yin Yang block is a very addictive one to stitch and it presses absolutely perfectly every time, thanks to the precision of the matching points.

Batik Hexagons

Carol in Panama made this DDG batik quilt.
You can read all about it on her own blog (follow the link that is embedded in her name) and see close-ups of the quilting, and of the design-choices she has made.

Carol writes :
I began this project because I wanted a small portable block that I could stitch by hand on airplanes, in waiting rooms and while watching TV. After laboriously stitching forty two English Paper Pieced hexagons I finally admitted to myself that I hated EPP. Then I discovered Inklingo. No paper templates, no basting, a running stitch instead of a whip stitch, far more accurate than EPP and the stitches never show on the front. The pressing is a dream and the quilt lies perfectly flat.

I couldn't use Linda's English Paper Piecing Rescue instructions because I used a glue stick instead of basting the papers onto the fabric. I put the forty two EPP hexagons away and started over with Inklingo. I has been quite a journey, but I am glad I didn't give up!

Wedding Signature Quilt

Pat B from NY also made this wonderful Wedding Sinature quilt.

She writes :
I used Collection 2 to print all the triangles on the signature-quilt. The block patterns came from two different patterns in McCall's Quilting.

Editor's Note : "Collection 2" is a sold-out collection on CD. Most of the shapes, however, are found in the HST and QST 00B collections, which are downloadable.

Joseph's Coat

Cathy in TN has been persuaded to show her Joseph's Coat WIP to us all.
Remember that this collection was issued on June 18th ! so Cathy has been a busy bee :-)

Cathy writes
I am making a queen-size quilt, about 90 x 110". So far I have 4 rows, which makes the current piece about 90 x 24". I am enjoying it so much. This pattern is just a delight to piece.
On the Inklingo Yahoo-group, she told us that she is using the "Summer Breeze" collection by Sentimental Studios for Moda

Feathered Star

Pat B in NY is fussy-cutting her Feathered Star as well ... but no owls.

She writes :

The Feathered Star is 20" and I used Stack and Whack methods to get the centre and kites.

Looks amazing, Pat

Chinz Circles / Orange Peel de Luxe

Carole has bought Cathi's new pattern for Chinz Circles, and has made a few test-runs.
So now we're all looking forward to seeing where she goes with this.

Uses the Orange Peel de Luxe collection

Feathered Stars with Owls.

Kathy has finished her owly Feathered Star top, and it is, frankly, gorgeous.
She has used the 15" Feathered Star Collection, and some non-Inklingo bits to finish it. You can see the individual Feathered Stars here, and here.
