Encore Presentation of the Fifth LIVE Inklingo Video


ENCORE PRESENTATION
Thank you to everyone who watched LIVE on Saturday night. You can watch the replay here and I am sharing the links I promised.

As usual, you can click in the bottom right corner of the video to view larger or full screen. That is great for the close-up sewing sequences. (You can view full screen on Facebook too.)

Encore Live Inklingo Video 05

WRONG CAMERA
I did it again. I clicked on the wrong button when I changed screens, so you saw this when you should have seen me sewing.

The good news is . . ..

Live Inklingo Video 05

. . . . that you can skip ahead and not miss anything.

When you play the video (the first image above), you can click on the play line (blue line above) to drag it forward to about -22 minutes (red arrow) to skip ahead.  I repeated myself, so you won’t miss anything if you skip ahead.

I’m sorry for making this mistake and sorry it took me a few minutes to see it. Thank you to everyone who tried to alert me on Facebook.

I appreciate your patience while I am learning this complicated software and equipment.  Monkey says, we’re making progress because I did get it right several other times.

Printing on fabric is more my speed. I was not cut out to be a technical whiz—but I try.

LeMoyne Stars on Chair

Did you notice my desk chair?

For the videos, I sit in a dining room chair, so I can use my usual chair as a bulletin board.

Just like Inklingo, the simplest option is often the best.

AS PROMISED—LINKS MENTIONED IN THE LIVE VIDEO .
.

One Page Guide for 8-pointed stars

The demo in the video is summarized in an article from 2014, where everything is illustrated and you can download the one-page guide for 8-pointed stars.
.

Inklingo On-Point Quilt with LeMoyne Stars

I had a great quilt layout for stars to show you but I ran out of time. The free pattern uses the FREE Diamond Triangle Square shape collection and has been on the blog since 2011.
.

How to press LeMoyne Stars

I also wanted to finish talking about the advantages of the pressing technique in the video. For now, I’ll just mention that when you press the seam allowances clockwise around the center in all of the stars, the seam allowances will nest perfectly when you join the star blocks together. 

We press the same way when we hand piece, so I will talk more about the advantages of this pressing technique in another LIVE video.
..

Cathi's itty bitty LeMoyne Stars

I shared this LeMoyne Star quilt (3 inch blocks!) from Cathi’s Quilt Obsession Blog. If you visit there and search for LeMoyne, you will find many more star designs. I recommend subscribing to Cathi’s blog too.
..

LeMoyne Star by Kathy Timmons

I also had this photo teed up to show you. Kathy’s fussy cutting is fabulous and . . .

LeMoyne Star by Kathy in Mexico

. . . you can see the fussy cutting in dozens of stars, close up on Flicker.
Aren’t you glad you visited today! There are many other Inklingo projects in Kathy’s amazing Flickr albums.
.

Midnight Fireworks Quilt

Midnight Fireworks from Millefiori Quilts (first book) is another Inklingo shape collection that uses 8-pointed stars. You can use the technique in the video for those stars too.
.

Patchwork of the Crosses by machine

I sewed several hexagons by machine in the video but I ran out of time to show you how I use them for Patchwork of the Crosses. My hybrid POTC has some seams by machine and some seams by hand.
.

Patchwork of the Crosses by machine

You saw me join the white hexagons by machine, sewing crosshair to crosshair. That leaves me with some relaxing, portable “continuous stitching” for 16 short seams. Hybrid piecing gives me the best of both worlds. 

I also mentioned a few more links.

LIVE —NEW MISTAKES NEXT TIME 
By now, you know that I am technically challenged. Printing on fabric is one of the easiest things you can do with a computer. Managing live video must be one of the hardest but I’m not giving up yet.
..

Introduction to Inklingo

Here’s another video that is NOT live, so there are no built-in mistakes. 8 minutes to get you started printing free shapes on fabric.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT FACEBOOK
It is up to YOU to make sure Facebook shows you what you want to see.

On January 11th, Facebook made some big changes. They only show the videos and images I show on the Inklingo Facebook page to fewer than 1% of the 44,780 quilters who have liked the page UNLESS I PAY THEM.

“Pay to play” is how Facebook makes billions. This means that your Facebook feed is going to give priority to businesses that pay for ads.

I am keeping the videos free, so I cannot afford to pay hundreds of dollars to notify you when the next one is coming.

There are a few things you can do that don’t cost anything:

  • Visit the Inklingo Facebook Page regularly. The more you like and comment and SHARE, the more likely Facebook is to decide to show you my photos and videos next time.
  • Choose “follow” on the Inklingo Facebook Page. No guarantee—but you are more likely to see my photos.
  • Subscribe to the blog, so you get an email when I post here. The link is at the top of the right side-bar (or below the content on mobile).
    .

Millefiori Quilts 3 Lucky Stars

COMING SOON
Exciting news in the video—a new shape collection for LeMoyne Star 8 inch is coming in the next few days. It also includes bonus shapes, so you can make Lucky Stars, one of the beautiful designs in Millefiori Quilts 3.

I hope you will tell your friends about the LIVE videos and come back again next time.

It is odd to talk to a camera without being able to see you, so your comments on Facebook and here are a lifeline. Thank you!

Curvy Hexie Stars – Part 3

Curvy Hexie Star Quilt

The new Curvy Hexie Star shapes can be used with matching hexagons to make some fabulous designs.

This is one of the worksheets in each Curvy Hexie Star shape collection.

 

Curvy Hexie Star

HOW BIG?

The dimensions of 60° Hexagons can be a bit confusing, and since there is a choice of 4 sizes, let’s compare.

 

Dimensions of hexagon

1.5 inch 60° Hexagons – Dimensions

  • 1.5 inches finished on each side
  • 2.6 inches across the middle from flat side to flat side
  • 3 inches across the middle from point to point

 

Dimensions of hexagon

That gives you a star about 5.2 x 5.25 inches.

If you have the shape collection for Inklingo 60° Hexagons 1.5 inch you can use them with Curvy Hexies 1.5 inch too!

 

Dimensions of hexagon

2 inch 60° Hexagons – Dimensions

  • 2 inches finished on each side
  • 3.46 inches across the middle from flat side to flat side
  • 4 inches across the middle from point to point

 

Dimensions of hexagon

That gives you a star about 6.92 x 7 inches.

If you have the shape collection for Inklingo 60° Hexagons 2 inch you can use them with Curvy Hexies 2 inch too!

 

Dimensions of hexagon

2.25 inch 60° Hexagons – Dimensions

  • 2.25 inches finished on each side
  • 3.9 inches across the middle from flat side to flat side
  • 4.5 inches across the middle from point to point

 

Dimensions of hexagon

That gives you a star about 7.8 x 7.875 inches.

If you have the shape collection for Inklingo 60° Hexagons 2.25 inch you can use them with Curvy Hexies 2.25 inch too!

 

Dimensions of hexagon

3 inch 60° Hexagons – Dimensions

  • 3 inches finished on each side
  • 5.2 inches across the middle from flat side to flat side
  • 6 inches across the middle from point to point

 

Dimensions of hexagon

That gives you a nice big star, about 10.4 x 10.5 inches.

If you have the shape collection for Inklingo 60° Hexagons 3 inch you can use them with Curvy Hexies 3 inch too!

 

Main Hexagon Page

The largest ones can be sewn by machine, if you prefer. (Videos on the Main Hexagon Page.)

Low intro price for a few more days only!

 

There is detailed info about how to design with hexagons in the Hexagon Quilt Design Book, which is $10 or free!

25 Signs YOU are an Inklingo Quilter

Inklingo on Facebook

FREE Templates for Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses (POTC) – Part 2

Make templates for any shape!

In Part 1, we showed you the advantages of freezer paper templates with an acrylic ruler.

It works for ANY SHAPE—triangles, hexagons, anything you can draw or print!

  • Have as many as you want!
  • They’re free! (Spend the money on fabric instead!)
  • If you lose one, you can make another one!
  • No waiting to start a project!

The advantages for FUSSY CUTTING POTC!

I find fussy cutting hexagons for Patchwork of the Crosses (POTC) difficult with acrylic templates because they slide around.

Freezer paper (plus acrylic edge) gives me more control and makes everything go faster. Once you try it, I don’t think you will bother with acrylic hexagons again!

(NOTE This article describes traditional fussy cutting, which makes Swiss cheese of the fabric. Inklingo is also perfect for No Waste Fussy Cutting when you have the right fabric!)

Once you have turned freezer paper templates into acrylic templates with your rulers, I don’t think you will need acrylic shapes for any design.

.

Hexagon template for Patchwork of the Crosses

1. Print or draw the shapes on freezer paper or plain paper to make individual window templates (above).

It is an advantage to have several window templates instead of one acrylic hexagon. You will usually need 4 or 8 for POTC and 5 or 10 for Passacaglia and Ballet from Millefiori Quilts and Millefiori Quilts 2.

.

Print templates for POTC

2. Prepare as many FP templates as you need.
(No seam allowances, see Part 1.)

You can use the shape from the window template or you can print the Inklingo shapes without seam allowances and rotary cut precision shapes.

ANYTHING you can draw on freezer paper can be used this way!

.

Fussy Cutting identical hexagons

3. Position the window template over the first design, with the fabric draped over your ironing board. Find identical designs in the fabric and mark with additional window templates.

If the window templates are freezer paper, press with a hot, dry iron to hold in position. (Use a small piece of tape to hold the paper templates in position temporarily, if necessary.)

When you see several of them positioned on the fabric, you will get a good idea of the number of repeats available and what will be left for additional sets of identical shapes.

Depending on the design you want to fussy cut, it may not always be possible to have straight grain on two sides. As usual, handle bias gently and never use steam to press.

.

Fussy Cutting identical hexagons

With this fabric, I could see the designs just as clearly from the wrong side, so I placed the fabric on the ironing board wrong side up.

You won’t always be able to do this but it is nice if you can if you are planning to use a mechanical pencil to mark the sewing lines.

I find the window more helpful than covering the design with acrylic because I can see exactly where the points and corners fall on each flower in the design.

.

Fussy Cutting POTC hexagons

4. Drop the FP templates into the opening in the windows template and touch with a hot, dry iron to hold in position. Then you can remove the window templates. They can be used over and over again.

 

Rotary cut hexagons

5. Slide a cutting mat under the fabric on the ironing board and cut.
Add the seam allowance, as described in Part 1.

Hooray! You have the results you would get with an acrylic template but you did not have to pay for acrylic or wait for an acrylic template to arrive in the mail!

.

Rotary cut hexagons

This has many advantages over acrylic templates:

  • You have as many templates as you need, not just one hexagon.
  • The templates don’t slip the way acrylic does, so you can be sure every hexagon is perfect.
  • You choose how wide or narrow to make the seam allowances.
  • Optional: Add the sewing lines if you wish. (Part 1)

.

Print hexagons on fabric

Of course, it is easier and more precise when you print the shapes on fabric with Inklingo and rotary cut several layers at a time.

My first choice is always to print the shapes on fabric. It is faster, easier and more accurate than using any kind of template and you can sew by hand or by machine.

If you can find a fabric suitable for No Waste Fussy Cutting, you won’t need templates, but when you do need templates, I recommend freezer paper with an acrylic ruler instead of acrylic templates.

There is also a video for POTC on the Main Lucy Boston Page on the website. (You are on the blog now.)

.

Introduction to Inklingo

Just in case you would like to skip templates entirely and print the shapes on fabric instead, there are step by step instructions and a new VIDEO on the Welcome to Inklingo page on the website.

Inklingo quilters spend more time sewing and less time getting ready to sew—and get better results!

New Inklingo Star Point Shape Collection – Itty Bitty

New Inklingo Star Points

NEW STAR POINTS

You asked for it!

Over a year ago, we added Star Points in two sizes. They were requested by Inklingo quilters who want to make a Texas Star variation designed by Cathi at Quilt Obsession. (Cathi used Inklingo Shape Collection #1, which sold out years ago.)

See Cathi’s design in the header of her blog.

That made many Inklingo quilters happy, but others said “Smaller! Smaller!”

So we listened. If you already have Inklingo 60° Hexagon 0.5 inch, this might be just the cat’s meow.

 

Inklingo Star Points

PRINT STAR POINTS ON FABRIC WITH INKLINGO

When you print the shapes on fabric, you can rotary cut several layers at a time to start sewing sooner and finish sewing faster than with any other method.

The results will make you happy too, thanks to the precise shapes with perfect straight grain, crosshairs, matching marks, and stitching lines.

  • Alternate layouts for a choice of straight grain and directional designs.
  • Use scraps efficiently or buy exactly what you need.
  • No waste fussy cutting (printing 6 identical sheets of fabric for each star)

 

Inklingo Star Points by hand

Normally Inklingo shapes can be sewn by machine or by hand, but these are too itty bitty to be reasonable by machine, okay?

You can rescue a quilt you started with English Paper Piecing. Finish faster with more precise results!

 

Use Star Points with other 60° shapes

This is an Add-On shape collection, so you only pay for the shapes you plan to use.

It is up to you whether you use Star Points with hexagons or diamonds or triangles.

When you print shapes with Inklingo, you can relax and be confident that they will fit together perfectly.

 

Inklingo Star Points to print on fabric

A CHOICE OF SIZES

There is also a Star Point on the Inklingo Shape Collection # 3 CD (0.75/1.5 inch).

 

Inklingo Star Points for Texas Star Quilt

There are already several articles about Star Points on the blog, so you can download and start sewing right away.

 

Inklingo Pieced Hexagon with 2 inch sides

This Pieced Hexagon uses the new Star Point Add-On with 60° Hexagon 0.5 inch and 60° Diamond 1.0 inch.

I wonder how many more Pieced Hexagons you could make with the add-on Star Points and 300 Pieced Hexagons!

 

Inklingo Star Point Variations

I listen to you. Shapes which are requested frequently move up the list quickly. When you request something, please include the size you want, okay? It makes it much easier for me.

Wednesday Tute 04 – Inklingo Pieced Hexagons

Inklingo quilters love inset seams.

WHY INSET SEAMS ARE MORE FUN THAN REGULAR SEAMS

YES, they are!

Our 300 Inklingo Pieced Hexagons are pretty designs, don’t you think? It has been fun to design them with swatches of Timeless Treasures fabric.

These are even more fun to sew with Inklingo when they have inset seams.

Inklingoists love inset seams. Are you surprised? Let me explain!

 

Inklingo inset seams.

An inset seam is required when a piece is stitched into an angle formed by other pieces (red lines, above).

They are sometimes called Y seams.

 

Sew from crosshair to crosshair.

For insets, we must stop stitching exactly at the seam allowance. We cannot sew edge-to-edge.

 

Inklingo crosshairs & matching marks.

Inklingo makes inset seams easier because there are precise crosshairs printed on the fabric. You can see exactly where to start and stop.

If you are machine piecing, learning to sew from crosshair to crosshair takes a bit of practice. (See the video.) It can be fun, but some machine piecers prefer the “normal” method and want to sew edge-to-edge all the time. (That is why inset seams got such a bad name.)

AH HA! When we sew by hand, the “normal” method is to sew from crosshair to crosshair on every seam. That means inset seams are no harder than regular seams when we sew by hand!

And it gets even better!

 

Sew this Inklingo Pieced Hexagon with 3 seams!

Thanks to inset seams, I can sew this Pieced Hexagon design with only three threads!

I look for opportunities to turn “regular” seams into inset seams. Yes, I do!

SEWING SEQUENCE – PLAN YOUR ROUTE

When I am hand piecing, I like to plan my route, so I can go from one seam to the next without breaking the thread.

Plan your route for continuous stitching.

THREE THREADS—1, 2, 3

Isn’t that cool? 19 pieces, 3 threads, 1 great design to impress everyone.

At the end of every seam, I can turn a corner and keep going. You can see how I do it in several of the Inklingo videos on YouTube. (See Grandmother’s Flower Garden, Kaleidoscope Stars, etc.)

DESIGN YOUR OWN ROUTE

The sewing sequence illustrated for this Pieced Hexagon is just one example. There are other good sewing sequences for this design. You cannot make a mistake! You can add the pieces in any order. The more you sew, the better you will get at eliminating starts and stops.

I find it fun to lay the pieces out wrong side up and plan my route so there are fewer stops and starts. The sewing lines and crosshairs printed on the fabric give me confidence. I know I will be happy with the finished block.

CONTINUOUS STITCHING IS LIKE CHAIN PIECING

“Continuous stitching” is the hand piecing equivalent of chain piecing by machine.

Sewing continuously with a running stitch gets me into a relaxing, enjoyable rhythm. It makes me feel happy.

See all the advantages of Hand Piecing on the Inklingo website. There is other cool stuff under the Hand Piecing tab, like Why English Paper Piece?

One seam at a time? I prefer continuous stitching.

I could sew one seam at a time, but do you see why I consider it an advantage when a piece is stitched into an angle formed by other pieces?

“Continuous stitching” makes me love inset seams.

You can impress your friends with all of your insets, but please tell everyone how easy they are with Inklingo.

 

Inklingo Pieced Hexagons

We have more tips like this to share in the next Wednesday Tute.

Would you like to catch up from the beginning?

If you can’t wait for next Wednesday, you might like to see me “circling the intersection” for nice, tight, precision matches when 5, 6, 7, 8 or more pieces meet. There are close-up sewing sequences in Part 2 of Kaleidoscope Star on YouTube.

300 PIECED HEXAGON DESIGNS? YES!

Pick a size and choose the ones you like the best!

Please “like” Inklingo and tell your friends on Facebook about the new Wednesday Tutes! It is not too late to jump in.
