I published a new shape collection yesterday and announced it on the Inklingo Facebook page but I was sewing and watching hockey with Russ last night, so I did not finish this for the blog until this morning.
As usual, the special LOW intro price on the new shape collection is good for a few days only.
$25 is fabulous value!
$20 is even better. LeMoyne Star 8 inch
This time, I included two bonus shapes—a pentagon and a square. They are perfect for Lucky Stars, one of the great designs in Millefiori Quilts 3 (third book) by Willyne Hammerstein.
The original quilt uses 12 cm stars (about 4.7 inches), so the quilt is bigger when you use 8 inch stars.
Center of the original quilt (no borders) – approx 37 x 51 inches.
Center of quilt with 8 inch blocks – approx 64 x 88 inches.
You do not need papers or acrylic templates with Inklingo, so it is less expensive AND easier to sew Lucky Stars this way, especially if you get the low intro price.
The instructions for Lucky Stars are in Willyne’s beautiful Millefiori 3 book. I think you know by now why this book is my favorite of the three.
In the 5th LIVE Inklingo Video on Facebook, I shared piecing and pressing instructions for LeMoyne Stars and a one-page guide to print and keep beside the sewing machine.
You can sew these stars by hand, if you prefer, of course, when you have the lines printed on the fabric with Inklingo.
FREE SHAPES FOR LEMOYNE STAR – SINCE 2008
Tens of thousands of quilters have downloaded the free shape collection and followed the instructions to sew stars.
I always recommend starting with the Diamond Triangle Square shape collection ($20 value) because it includes the first chapter of The Inklingo Handbook (pages H5 – H48) and some great shapes to print on fabric.
MORE DIAMONDS – 45°
There are MANY other sizes of 45° Diamonds available for Castle Wall, Celestial Star, Feathered Star, Hunter’s Star, Key West Beauty and Midnight Fireworks. You can see them all in the Index of Shapes, Diamond Page (under the Support & Goodies tab on the website).
The Index of Shapes is divided into categories to help you find other shapes too.
There is a short VIDEO on the Welcome to Inklingo page on the website to help you start printing with the FREE shapes.
FACEBOOK HAS CHANGED!
If you have been following the news, you know that you cannot count on Facebook to show you anything from the pages you have liked anymore. Facebook has made major changes.
If you want to see what I post on Facebook, it is a good idea to
- choose the option to “follow” the Inklingo page
- like, comment, and share my photos and videos
These steps make it more likely that Facebook will show you anything on the Inklingo Facebook Page but there is no guarantee, so it is good idea to visit frequently on your own.
I don’t post as frequently on the blog as I post on Facebook, but it is a good idea to subscribe here too.
I am planning another live video on Facebook, so please stay tuned! In the meantime, I think you love this new, versatile size. LeMoyne Star 8 inch
