Pinwheel Tablerunner

Sue made this great project with the Drunkard's Path collection. She writes :

This is my new table runner. It will be given to the 150th Anniversary collection of stuff to be raffled off. Our church and another small church, share the same Pastor and this June marks 150 years of being joined.

The table runner was quilted on my longarm which just had a computer added to it. I am having so much fun trying all of the this is my firstproject and not perfect quilting by any means. Lots of learning curve needed.

Even more Insanity

Linda is also making the Insanity quilt (more information on the pattern in this post) !
This is her progress.

And it seems that it really is possible to wrap your mind around a big quilt with ½" hexagons when preparation is as easy as it is with Inklingo.

Other Insanity projects here and here.
(and yes, the name of the quilt is "Insanity")

Shabby Chic Double Wedding Ring

Cathi is making a small table runner using the new Double Wedding Ring collection and has, so far, got two rings joined.

Double Wedding Ring

Bruce made a great start on his Double Wedding Ring project. He writes :

The fabrics are from the Riviera Collection from Connecting Threads. I am stitchin the DWR together by hand. It is so easy and comes together like a dream.
Linda has taken all the hard work out of it for us. The curves are so smooth and gradual that it is like stitching straight lines.

Diameter of circle is 12"

More Insanity

Bruce is also making the Insanity-quilt, so here it is, in much brighter colours :-)

He writes :

I have all the centre diamonds on mine done, and am putting them together at this point. What started out as an addiction has now become an obsession. I know why it is called insanity at this point LOL.

Insanity progresses further

Deanna shared the first parts of her Insanity quilt here. Now the project has progressed enough for her to begin to put on the borders.

Made with hexagons that are a ½" to a side (the 0.50" collection).

Twinkle, twinkle little star

Karan made this wonderful little quilt, she writes :

My first Inklingo project, a doll quilt top, is inspired by an antique doll quilt in the book "Childhood Treasures" by Merikay Waldvogel. The photo of the quilt is on page 32 of the book.

I hand pieced the LeMoyne Star blocks, using Linda's 4 1/2" free collection. They were a lot of fun to stitch, and went together perfectly.
Size approximately 18 * 27".
