I found the background fabric for my Kaleidoscope Stars in the first shop I visited yesterday!
I can’t stop sewing.
I’m going to set the stars with 60° Hexagon 1.25 inch.
TIP Since all Inklingo shapes are named with the finished size, there is no math. 1.25 inch 60° diamonds fit with 1.25 inch 60° hexagons, and 2 inch 60° diamonds fit with 2 inch 60° hexagons, and so on.
There are many sizes of both.
I use the No Waste Fussy Cutting method.
I rotary cut rows, and then cut the diamonds into sets as described in the video for Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses.
Zip, zip, zip.
10 minutes. Done.
Each one is a little surprise.
This one is my favorite.
No. Wait. THIS one is my favorite.
I am so confused.
The method in the article on QuiltingHub and the video showing how to get perfect intersections works for the center of the stars AND for the intersections with the hexagons too.
INTRO PRICE ENDS TONIGHT AT MIDNIGHT
The new diamonds are at a very special intro price—but only until midnight tonight (or whenever I wake up tomorrow morning).
I will add more to an album on the Inklingo FaceBook page.
