Addy's Quilt - more Insanity

Lorraine in MI is working on an Insanity version with her sister-in-law. They are using the 0.75" hexagons (rather than the 0.50" ones the original pattern calls for). She writes :

We have more borders to add, but had to share our progress. This is for my SiLaw's granddaughter who loves red, stars and hearts.
There are not words to describe what a pleasure this project has been! Inklingo has made it a breeze to print and send and share in the stitching!
There are 3 more children needing heirloom quilts and we already have plans for those...all using Inklingo!

Red and White Houses

Jeannette from Australia is making houses.
She writes :
I'm sending a picture of some of the Little Red School House blocks that I have made into 10" blocks using 1"x10" logs from the Log Cabin Collection.
I printed 2 logs for each house block. One log separates the roof from the walls, the other log is cut as follows:
3.5" to separate the side wall from the front of the house and the rest of the log needs to be reduced to 1.25" wide by cutting on the dotted line on 1 side only otherwise when sewn between the gable and the rest of the roof on the angle it is too wide.
After sewing in place I trimmed it to size. The sky piece is cut 2.5"x10.5". I used 2 chimneys on the roof and the sizes for the sky pieces in between are 1 each as follows; 2.5" x 2.75", 2.5" x 3.5", 2.5" x 3.75".
I have pieced them using my machine and I have made 21 houses so far for a Quilt pattern on the cover of the Australian Patchwork and Quilting Magazine volume 8 number 7.
The blocks in the book are 12".
I am very happy with the way they are turning out and I thought may be someone else might be interested in this size as well.

Regards Jeannette Down Under.

Red and White Log Cabin

Nancy in Alabama finished another project.
She writes :
I finished another small red and cream wall-hanging using Inklingo.
The little off set logs quilt is 22" square and uses 0.5" logs from the Log Cabin collection.

THE Hexagon Quilt - Insanity FINISHED !!!

YEA. Linda D. has FINISHED her Insanity quilt.
She writes :
"My "Insanity" quilt is finished. I added two extra rows to the top and bottom and another row to each side so now there are 11,127 hexagons. My quilt is called "THE Hexagon Quilt". It was of course hand pieced and hand quilted. This quilt has been a real labor of love and got me through a very difficult period in my life. Thank goodness for Inklingo."

... and just in case you have forgotten. This is made with hexagons that are 0.5" to the side. That's right. At their widest, from point to point, these hexagons are just 1", and the side of each hexagon is 0.5".

Awesome, Linda. Just awesome.

Yin, Yang and Log Cabins

Mary has been having a ball with the Yin Yang collection, and some Log Cabin blocks.
She writes :

For the log cabin blocks, I used 1.5” cut logs which I had already precut several years ago when I cut different sizes of “all” my Orientals.

Quilt is 66”x 75”

Now, Mary, you might have used strips you had already, but just so the readers of this blog knows : You can make the same kind of Log Cabin blocks using the 1" Log Cabin collection.
And I think it is a gorgeous quilt !

Stars on the table

Sue in Western New York state has finished a table-cloth using Inklingo. She writes :

The fabrics were in a package that I purchased at Quilt Market last fall.
The fabric is from Darlene Zimmermans Clothesline Club by Robert Kaufman. The kit is called Blue Ribbon Winner it is 60" square. I pieced the flying geese with Inklingo collection #2 - making the flying geese come perfect!
The instructions for the flying geese/star points is on page 66 of the Inklingo Handbook.

And a note : Collection # 2 is sold out, but you can make equally precise and easy Flying Geese with the 00B HST collection, which is downloadable and available :-)

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.

Feathered Star

Carole is making Feathered Stars too, and her version has a lacy (with a c, not a z !), elegant feel to it that I don't think I have seen before. I look forward to seeing more of this project !

More of Kathy's Owls

Another batch of Kathy's wonderful Owls.
This time, I recognize some of the non-owly fabrics, and remember them as being pretty ugly when I tried to use them. Amazing how the right person can make fabrics sing ! because after seeing them being used here, I'm (almost) sad that I didn't get more than a charm-pack of them. Cute blocks with gorgeous fussy-printing.

Sunflowers at Sea

Nancy in Alabama has made this beautiful little wall-hanging.
She writes :
I finished a small Double Sunflower quilt for my breakfast room. I used shapes from the 6" Storm At Sea collection for the border. The Storm At Sea is so versatile

Double Sunflower uses both the 6" and 12" Sunflower collections. And what a lovely idea to use the Storm At Sea shapes for the border.

Project is 16" square.

More Feathered Stars with Owls

Kathi also keeps on with her Owly Feathered Stars. They really are specacular. Notcie the pentagon centre in one ! (and please disregard that I couldn't find my way to turn one of them on its head, even though Kathi asked it). More of Kathi's Feathered Freinds Stars can also be found in this post.


Kathi has started making these lovely blocks, using her collection of Owl Fabrics. Must be a huge collection. She is using the 150 % POTC collection, that is, the larger size of the 90-degree hexagon shape that is also used in the Patchwork Of The Crosses. Try clicking on the individual pictures to see more details. It is worth it.
