Inklingo Quilters are Printing and Sewing!

From Canada to California to Mexico to Australia to France to Denmark and everywhere in between, quilters have been printing and sewing Inklingo shapes and making beautiful blocks.

I have permission to share a few.

Patchwork of the Crosses by Monica in California

Monica wrote:
“The 2 on the left were from Carrie’s Pieceful Gathering kits. The others I made up out of the fabric scraps I have… some of which didn’t really look like scraps until I fussy cut and put holes all over them!”

Absolutely beautiful work!

I love what Chantal is doing with the Silent Garden design. (Millefiori Quilts 3)

“I cannot resist to send you my first attempt with Inklingo. I have found a rythm….I am in a club and, although my “colleagues” are very traditional, they were all marvelled. I am sure some of them will do an Inklingo project next year. ”
Chantal in France

Amazing creativity. A first attempt. Très beau.

POTC by Beverley in Australia

Beverley has finished her POTC quilt top! She wrote:

“I’m so pleased to have found your way of piecing. I have almost finished my first inklingo project, a passacaglia quilt. So much more enjoyable than paper piecing!”

Absolutely beautiful work. I have shared more photos of Beverley’s beautiful quilts too.

Patchwork of the Crosses by Jytte in Denmark

Jytte in Denmark has shared dozens of her POTC blocks online, so you can see every detail.

Jytte wrote:
“My fabrics are reproduction fabrics, so they are older looking than the fabrics Lucy used, but they are so beautiful. Hope to finish the quilt some day – I use both machine piecing and hand piecing, just like you have shown in your book. And of course, I use inklingo.”

Jytte has captured the spirit of Lucy Boston with wonderful fabric choices. You are going to want to click on the link to see all of them!

Storm At Sea by Joyce in Ontario

Isn’t this amazing?

Joyce in Ontario has made two quilts so far with Inklingo. She wrote:

“The Storm at Sea was the first. I stumbled upon your site looking for Storm at Sea patterns and bought the 9” shapes. I had also been reading “Color Play 2″ by Joen Wolfrom and tried a colour combination outside my normal comfort zone. I really liked the results so my next two pieced quilts are also using your Inklingo method. I am enjoying the accuracy.”

I will share more photos showing detail of this amazing quilt and her Mariner’s Compass on The Inklingo Facebook Page too. What an inspiration!

ARE YOU SUBSCRIBED?
I have many more photos to share.

I hope you will subscribe and add linda@lindafranz.com to your contact list, so you can receive emails when there is something new like this on the blog.

Introduction to Inklingo

If you are new to Inklingo, this short video will bring you up to speed.

Starlit Star by Kathy in Mexico

I think Kathy must be planning an on-point star quilt this time. “This collection has so many possibilities..alone and with the other collections.”

SALE EXTENDED ON STARLIT STAR
I have been very busy on a special project, so Monkey is late with his reminder about the sale ending on Starlit Stars.

Thank you to everyone who watched Friday Night LIVE. I could not do it without you—or if I did, it wouldn’t be any fun.

Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses

I postponed my original plan for the video because another reprint of Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses (POTC for short) was delivered this week. It is very exciting and gratifying for me that Lucy Boston’s legacy is getting stronger and stronger as the years go by!

I also needed a simple plan this time because the week was so hectic— including the delivery of 100 pizza boxes and unexpectedly living without running water for 24 hours.

I will save my original plan for another live video.

Another printing of Patchwork of the Crosses

I carried the boxes of POTC books into the house in stages. It will take a while to get the rest of them into the basement. So far, these have only made it as far as the landing.

I only carry one box at a time because they are 24 pounds each. I must be doing something wrong because I managed to break almost all of my fingernails. I’ll wear my garden gloves in the future.

I wanted to keep this live video SIMPLE because I am still working on getting a better camera setup too.

SIMPLICITY
The theme is simplicity. I talked about some of the things that inspire me and compared the simple tools of Lucy Boston with the simple tools we use today.
.

The Patchworks of Lucy Boston by Diana Boston

I first learned about Lucy Boston from Diana Boston’s gorgeous book. It is one of my all-time favorite quilt books even though it does not include patterns.

As soon as I saw it, I knew that Inklingo could make Lucy Boston’s innovative, complex works of art accessible to more quilters—and Inklingo IS all about making quilting more accessible.

When I contacted Diana Boston about doing my book, she was wonderful. Her book was out of print by that time but she brought it back with a new cover when I published mine.

None of this would be possible without Diana Boston.

The Manor at Hemingford Grey

Diana Boston’s book about Lucy Boston includes wonderful stories about the inspiration for her patchworks, her fabric purchases in wartime England, references to the patchworks in her letters, historical background, and her life story.

Diana Boston’s descriptions of the patchworks are insightful and poetic, and Julia Hedgecoe’s photographs are inspirational.

By the way, I should have said “fabric department” instead of “quilt shop” when I was talking about the limited fabric options available to Lucy Boston after World War II. Quilt shops came later.

Inklingo Live Video 04

LIVE —NEW MISTAKES NEXT TIME 
As a “non-techie” person, managing all of the new software and equipment for the live videos has been a challenge.

My main “focus” now is getting a better camera setup, so I can use my good digital cameras as webcams. When that is sorted out, I will be able to sew LIVE by hand and by machine and show it to you close up!

GLOSSOPHOBIA
A fear of public speaking is one of the most common phobias. I think everyone has it at least a little bit.

Doing these live videos takes public speaking to a whole new level because of the technical side (not my forte), because I cannot see you, and because it is saved online for anyone to see. It is hard for me to watch when it is over.

When I was traveling to speak at quilt guilds, I knew the audience was friendly and I could get a live response. With these videos, I have no idea who might be watching, so your LIVE comments make a huge difference. Thank you!

.

Introduction to Inklingo

Here’s another video that is NOT live and I am not on camera at all. It only takes 8 minutes and tells you how to start printing great shapes on fabric FREE.

I hope you will come back for the next LIVE videos and bring your friends.

If you watch the replay (at the top), please watch with a kind eye and let me know what you would like to see next time, okay? You can leave a comment below or email me at linda@lindafranz.com.

Thank you for watching!

Encore Presentation of the Third LIVE Inklingo Video

Happy New Year!

2017 has been a great year for Inklingo and I hope 2018 will be even better. More videos. (And more video bloopers.) More shape collections. More sewing time. More QUILTS.

And last but not least, more time with friends.

 


ENCORE PRESENTATION
Thank you to everyone who watched Friday Night LIVE. This would not be any fun without you.

I talked about

  • the NEW Silent Garden shape collections from Millefiori Quilts 3
  • printing on dark fabric
  • a cool tip with freezer paper templates
  • continuous stitching by hand
  • circling the intersection by hand
  • sewing crosshair to crosshair by machine
  • hybrid piecing (combining hand and machine piecing)
  • fabric requirements for different layouts, different straight grain, stripes
  • two tips for fussy cutting

That’s all I could cram into one hour. Pretty good, eh? (Live from Canada)

Inklingo Live Video 03
As usual, I was disappointed with parts of it.

This is a rare shot where I was actually looking at the right camera. I was so concerned about making sure I was showing the intended scene/camera—correcting a previous mistake—that I was often looking at a monitor off to my right. It looks odd. Disappointing.

So, next time, I will try to look at the correct camera more often—while still keeping an eye on what scene is playing and NOT glancing at the live feed on Facebook, which is delayed.

All very confusing—but that’s LIVE for you.

 


Another blooper.

Unfortunately, this clip showing printing on dark fabric was cropped very tightly in Friday’s live video—my mistake.

I was able to create this new clip (above) with the un-cropped original video and coordinate it with the audio from the LIVE video. (It’s a miracle. I amazed myself.) I’m still learning. I think I can avoid this mistake next time.
 .
There is more about printing on fabric on the Main Beginner’s Page and more about printing on DARK fabric in the Top Ten Tutes.

 

hand piecing with a running stitch

The close-up camera focus was disappointing AGAIN. I’ll try something else next time.

I am also getting advice to fix the audio echo. <sigh>

I’ll keep making mistakes but I’ll try to make new ones every time, okay?

Live = You never know what will happen but I still felt sad when I watched the replay this time.

If you had trouble seeing the stitching, there is an olde Inklingo video on YouTube which shows Circling the Intersection.

 

Silent Garden quilt stars

Yesterday, I tried to get over my disappointment by sewing 6 more stars.

I’m limited by the amount of fabric to only 57 stars. I wish I had more. I have 19 of 57 finished, so I’m a third of the way there. It is going to be gorgeous, don’t you think? Thank you, Willyne Hammerstein!

I combined hand and machine piecing (hybrid piecing) yesterday. Each star block goes very fast, especially  when I’m not on camera, trying to talk and manage cameras at the same time.

LIVE —NEW MISTAKES NEXT TIME 
I can confidently say that we will have brand new mistakes in Live 04.  <sigh> I am learning as we go along. It’s not boring.  You never know what will happen. I’m trying to see it as a learning experience.

Thank you for visiting here and thank you for watching LIVE, despite my shortcomings.

If you missed it, I hope you will watch the replay (at top) with a kind eye. Don’t forget to order the shapes while they are only $20 too!

Introduction to Inklingo

This video only takes 8 minutes and tells you how to start FREE.

If have a New Year’s Resolution to learn something new, let me suggest learning how to print on fabric. I guarantee it is easier than learning how to do live video!

I hope you will be back for more LIVE videos and bring your friends in 2018.

Thank you for a great 2017. Happy New Year!

Quilting on the Go Flower Garden Mini Quilt

Lilabelle Lane Creations

Sharon (Lilabelle Lane Creations)  takes traditional designs, adds a little Aussie twist, and makes them fresh and lovely again.

 

Flower Garden Mini Quilt Sharon Burgess

One example is her pretty Flower Garden Mini Quilt.

I love the way she uses stripes in this one!

 

Flower Garden Quilt instructions

It is one of the 16 designs in her beautiful book, Quilting on the Go.

 

Print hexagons on fabric

Like many of the other quilts in the book, the shapes are “inklingo-able.”

 

Hexagons 0.75 inch

This lovely mini quilt uses hexagons in the 60ª Hexagon shape collection 0.75 inch..

Inklingo PDFs are shape “collections,” so there is also a “house half” hexagon to use around the edges, so you don’t have to trim.

 

Print on scraps of fabric

Print on scraps of fabric or strips.

 

Print hexagons on fabric

For the flowers, you can print 6, 12, 18 or even 24 hexagons at a time and rotary cut.

 

Rotary cut hexagons

There is also a layout for scissors but it doesn’t save much fabric, and I prefer to rotary cut several layers at a time.

 

Rotary cut layers of hexagons

The cutting goes fast, especially when you cut 3 or 4 layers at a time.

 

Fussy Cut with Inklingo

The printing and cutting goes sooooo fast . . . . you might want to take a little extra time to fussy cut some of the hexagons. (Instructions for fussy cutting with freezer paper templates.)

 

Sew with a running stitch

When the shapes are printed, stacked and cut, you can settle down with some relaxing “continuous stitching.”

 

How to sew hexagons by hand

This video includes some of my best tips for sewing with a running stitch, continuous stitching, and pressing.

 

Hexagon Flower

Sewing with a running stitch is perfect if you are watching the World Series.

A “perfect” baseball game means nothing happens anyway. <wicked grin>  Most of the time it’s just two guys playing catch but you can stop a running stitch and look up if anyone is actually running.

Hexagons + Inklingo = a home run.

 

How to press Grandmothers Flower Garden

It is so satisfying to see each flower pressed. Even the back is pretty!

 

Sharon Burgess' Quilting on the Go

Many of the lovely projects in Sharon Burgess’ Quilting on the Go can be made quickly and simply with Inklingo Clamshells, hexagons, diamonds, triangles and kites.

It is a great book! I want to make all of the designs!

 

Celestial Star by Kathy Timmons

Kathy in Mexico is using the new Inklingo Celestial Star shape collection to make the cover quilt on Quilting on the Go. (Kathy is the queen of fussy cutting!) 

 

Introduction to Inklingo

This VIDEO on the Welcome to Inklingo page explains how to print on fabric (or paper) with your ordinary Inkjet printer. (Please tell your friends.) (book and more info)

TWO Capriccioso Quilt Sizes from Inklingo

Fussy Cut Capriccioso Star

Some quilters have asked me for help choosing between the two Inklingo shape collections for Capriccioso.

The original size made by Willyne has 0.75 inch squares. The shapes are quite small, so I also created a shape collection for a larger size with 1.25 inch squares.

 

Capriccioso Size Comparison

You can see that changing the size of the squares has quite a big effect on the size of the other shapes, like the kite for the center star.

The large size makes it possible to sew at least some of the seams by machine and it makes more designs fussy-cut-able too.

 

Capriccioso quilt size

The drawing is to scale. Big diff, eh?

QUILT DIMENSIONS

  • Original size: Approx 35 x 48 inches (center without borders)
  • Large Size: Approx 48 x 80 inches (center without borders)

 

Capriccioso Fussy Cutting

The large size allows you to use larger designs when you fussy cut.

 

Capriccioso templates to print

Normally, we like to print the shapes on fabric but Inklingo shape collections always include the shapes without seam allowances to print on freezer paper or other template material.

 

How to sew Capriccioso

SEW WITH A RUNNING STITCH

When I fussy cut with freezer paper templates (instead of printing identical sheets of fabric for No Waste Fussy Cutting), I mark the sewing lines with a mechanical pencil, so I can sew with a running stitch. The other shapes have printed lines.

 

How to press Capriccioso Star

Sewing with a running stitch also makes it easier to get a perfect  center intersection and the seam allowances press beautifully around the middle.

 

VIDEO How to sew stars

VIDEO  This video shows how I circle the intersection by hand to get perfect matches.

I love sewing by hand but I don’t have the patience for basting and whip-stitching and removing templates, as required by English Paper Piecing. With Inklingo, I can just print, cut, and sew!

 

Millefiori Quilts 3 by Willyne Hammerstein

The instructions for assembling Capriccioso are in the Millefiori 3 book. Willyne teaches sewing with a running stitch, not English Paper Piecing, as I originally thought.

NO ACRYLIC, NO PAPERS

When you decide which size is right for you, you can order, download and start your quilt  in the next few minutes.

There is no need to wait for templates to be mailed because you do not need acrylic templates or papers when you print with Inklingo.

RELATED INFO

VIDEO There is a video on the Main Millefiori Page (under the Shop tab) showing how to sew Passacaglia with a running stitch. It also applies to Capriccioso.

Fussy Cut Capriccioso with Inklingo

Capriccioso by Willyne Hammerstein

If you look closely at Willyne Hammerstein’s Capriccioso (Millefiori 3), you will see something you might not have expected.

She did not fussy cut the kites for more than eighty 6-pointed stars—but she did fussy cut the squares!

Isn’t that cool?

 

Fussy cut bees for Capriccioso

I looked through my stash for a print that would have enough motifs for more than 300 squares. I did not have anything similar to the circles in the original quilt but I found this bee fabric.

I printed the shapes for Inklingo Capriccioso Large on ordinary paper, so I could preview it (above).

 

Willyne Hammerstein's Capriccioso

The square in the Inklingo Capriccioso Original shape collection is only 0.75 inch, but the larger size (1.25 inch) works.

 

Preview for fussy cutting

It also made me wonder about fussy cutting the other three shapes in Capriccioso.

 

Fussy cut pentagons

1. TRADITIONAL FUSSY CUTTING

No matter which shape I decided to fussy cut, for the bees I would use freezer paper and traditional “Swiss cheese” fussy cutting.

 

Measure the repeat in the fabric

2. INKLINGO NO WASTE FUSSY CUTTING

If I had a suitable fabric to fussy cut the kites for the stars, Inklingo No Waste Fussy Cutting would be much faster and use the fabric efficiently.

Just print sets of 6 identical sheets of fabric to get sets of 6 identical kites. (It is similar to Stack n Whack but without the stacking and whacking.)

 

Capriccioso with fussy cut stars

NO ACRYLIC, NO PAPERS!

As usual, when you have Inklingo, there are TWO methods of fussy cutting and you don’t need to spend money on acrylic shapes or papers, so you can buy more fabric for even more fussy cutting!

Capriccioso with Inklingo

So many ideas, so many quilts to make. Life is good.

Celestial Star Part 1 – Fussy Cut

Celestial Star with Inklingo

Sharon Burgess’ Celestial Star design is fabulous for fussy cutting!

 

Celestial Star with Inklingo

Last night I wanted to get a Celestial Star “Color Burst” unit ready to sew this weekend because I know I will be watching hurricane coverage.

I need something to do with my hands. You too?

 

Celestial Star Cheat Sheet

So, I prepared a cheat sheet . . .

 

Freezer paper

. . . and cut the freezer paper . . .

 

Print on fabric with Inklingo

. . . and printed 56 of the shapes on 5 sheets of fabric.

(Actually, I printed 6 because I changed my mind about one fabric.)

 

Fussy Cutting with Inklingo

FUSSY CUT WITH TEMPLATES

I also fussy cut the Octagon and 8 Jewels using the freezer paper template method I teach for POTC and Passacaglia.

I write about fussy cutting a lot because there are TWO methods with Inklingo.

I often prefer to use “No Waste Fussy Cutting” but this time I printed the shapes without seam allowances on freezer paper with Inklingo to make templates.

 

Sharon Burgess' Quilting on the Go

Even if you don’t use Inklingo, you don’t need to buy templates because you can trace the shapes from the Quilting on the Go book to make freezer paper templates—which have every advantage over acrylic.

(If you are sewing with EPP, you can increase the size of the seam allowance with this method too!)

Freezer paper is better than acrylic in every way. (Details)

 

Celestial Star from the back

I blew my own plan because I finished sewing and pressing the Color Burst before bedtime. Ooops.

Even taking dozens of photos along the way, it only took a few hours to sew all 65 shapes.

I need a few more to sew during the hurricane this weekend.

 

Rotary Cut with Inklingo

Time to print some more.

Using Inklingo is the fastest, most precise way to prepare the shapes and even faster to sew.

 

Celestial Star dimensions

 

THREE CELESTIAL STAR SHAPE COLLECTIONS

INTRO PRICE ONLY $25

By the way, many quilters have asked me about the three sizes in the Celestial Star shape collections, so I added info to the website:

As usual, Inklingo octagons (and other shapes) are named with the length of the sides (finished):

100% Octagon 1.66 inch each side (4 inches across)
75% Octagon 1.24 inch each side (3 inches across)
125% Octagon 2.07 inch each side (5 inches across)

The shapes in the collections are accurate to 4 decimal points but I rounded them to 2 decimal points in the written instructions.

 

Introduction to Inklingo

If you are new to Inklingo, this VIDEO on the Welcome to Inklingo page on the website explains how to print on fabric with your Inkjet printer.

 

Celestial Star by machine

I sewed some seams by hand and some seams by machine! 

ARE YOU SUBSCRIBED? 

I’m going to show how to chain piece some seams by machine and continuous stitching by hand and I have more to say about Sharon’s beautiful book, so please subscribe (top of right side-bar), so you won’t miss anything.

SPECIAL INTRO PRICE

As usual, the new Clamshell Edges and Celestial Star shape collections and book are on sale at a super-low price for a few more days only.

 

Please donate to the Red Cross

PLEASE DONATE TO THE RED CROSS

Have you made a donation to the Red Cross? The need is huge and getting bigger all the time.

I have extended the offer for another week. If you donate at least $15 to the American Red Cross between September 3 and September 17 and let me know (linda @ lindafranz.com), I will give you the new Clamshell Edges 3.5 inch shape collection, FREE.

Russ and I spent up to six months every year in Naples Florida for many years. We are very worried about everyone in the path of Hurricane Irma, especially on the west coast. I’ll be glued to the TV again today, nervously printing and sewing.

Be safe, wherever you are.
