Octagons fit beautifully with squares and 90-degree triangles to create intriguing designs.

The 0.75 inch Inklingo size is the one used by Lucy Boston in her Keyboard Patchwork, which is described and photographed in The Patchworks of Lucy Boston by Diana Boston.

Why Quilters Love Inklingo Octagons

 

Inklingo Colonial Garden 
Colonial Garden 15.4 x 15.4 inches

1. Unusual & Beautiful Designs

Follow any pattern or use the time you save to create exciting settings and color combinations. 

2. Simple to Decide How Much Fabric

There are diagrams in every shape collection which show how many shapes you can cut from a yard of fabric.

3. Easy to Cut

No measuring. No templates. Use a rotary cutter or scissors. No expensive cutting machines required—and there are stitching lines and matching marks printed on every shape!

.

Sew by machine or by hand

4. Sew with a Running Stitch or by Machine

Sew with a running stitch instead of whip-stitching over templates with English Paper Piecing!

A running stitch is more portable, more fun, more precise, and faster! And the stitches don't show on the front!

On the other hand, there are 8 Good Ways to Use Inklingo for English Paper Piecing, if that is the method you enjoy.

If you want to sew by machine, choose the larger sizes. 

5. Fussy Cut

There are TWO fussy cutting methods with Inklingo! 

1. Traditional
Use freezer paper templates to make Swiss cheese of the fabric.

2. No Waste Fussy Cutting 
Print identical sheets of fabric, similar to Stack n Whack™, but simpler.

6. Print scraps and Jelly Rolls

Monkey shows you how to print on Jelly Rolls on the All About Inklingo blog.

 

Print on fabric or on paper

7. You can finish an EPP UFO with Inklingo!

"English Paper Piecing Rescue" is one of the most popular pages on the website!

 

How to sew insets by machine

8. Sew Octagons by Machine 

A video on the blog gives my best tips for sewing hexagons (or any inset seams!) by machine. You can do it!

. . . and another video by hand.

How to sew hexagons by hand

All of the sewing and pressing instructions for hexagons also apply to octagons.

Please subscribe to the blog to stay up to date with Inklingo tutorials!

IMPORTANT  If you are new to Inklingo, I recommend starting with the FREE Diamond Triangle Square shape collection.

It includes the first chapter of The Inklingo Handbook. With that and the Top Ten Tutes on the blog, you will be an expert in no time!
