Feathered Star

Any 6 inch block fits perfectly in the center of the center of Inklingo Feathered Star 20 inch

On Point Quilt Layout

You can set these blocks on-point with the On Point 6 inch set of triangles.

Other notes:

  1. The blocks can be used anywhere you need a 6 inch finished block.
  2. All Inklingo shapes and blocks are named with the FINISHED size.
  3. There are great instructions for sewing triangles in the free Triangle Tips PDF, including Flying Geese.
         HST = Half Square Triangle
         QST = Quarter Square Triangle
  4. There is more info about designing with Inkingo on the All About Inklingo blog, including several project files to use with Electric Quilt software.
  5. There are also several downloadable design books (half price or free) for Drunkard's Path, Dresden Plate, Storm At Sea, Sunflower, and Winding Ways, PLUS galleries of quilts on the website.
  6. Many of these blocks can be made with Inklingo in other sizes too.
  7. Monkey's Cheat Sheet will keep you organized with the printing and fabric requirements.

NOT COMPLETE!

The list of 6 inch blocks is INCOMPLETE and it will never be complete—because the possibilities are infinite!

This should get you started, but there are dozens more. I will add examples from time to time.
