COTSG Solved – More Inklingo Mystery Quilts

The Case of the Secret Garden (COTSG) Mystery Quilt is not a race, but Inklingo quilters are finishing in record time!

It is a nice feeling to know that there are many Inklingo quilters still quietly sewing A-B-C-D units together. It is relaxing and portable and “even more satisfying than knitting” according to one new Inklingoist.


Inklingo COTSG by Glenda in OR

 Glenda’s COTSG in Oregon

Glenda has been sewing all her life and quilting since 1985. She has also become an experienced Inklingoist and blogs about it at My Sewing Site.

I love visiting her blog because she has a variety of Inklingo projects on the go and she shows them in progress. She teaches quilting, so she originally started her blog for her students. She has also shared tips for thimbles and sewing techniques, all illustrated with lots of photos.

Glenda is making some gorgeous POTC blocks (Patchwork of the Crosses).  There is a mini-slide show of them on her blog too. Monkey says she would love it if you left a comment.


Inklingo COTSG by Bert in MI

 BERT’S COTSG in Michigan

Bert (short for Alberta) has been an Inklingo quilter for years and she does beautiful work.

I love the pink and burgundy palette she used. Bert made a great choice for the borders too.


Inklingo COTSG by Bruce in MN

Bruce’s COTSG in Minnesota

The green was an inspired choice for the border of a garden, don’t you think? Bruce has a wonderful sense of color. He made a fabulous Inklingo Double Wedding Ring Quilt which you can see on the blog.

Bruce does a lot of hand piecing but he says this one is about 50/50 hand and machine. Hand piecing COTSG helped him catch up on episodes of Dr Who and machine sewing gave him confidence sewing curves. (MORE reasons to make COTSG!)

Bruce has been using Inklingo from the beginning, and we are glad he does!


COTSG Case of the Secret Garden

If you have a picture of your COTSG quilt top, please let me know if I may show it on the blog. Thank you to Bert, Glenda, and Bruce for giving me permission to show their quilt tops here today.


Now that you have seen so many COTSG quilts, it isn’t a mystery anymore, but it is not too late to start.

COTSG is perfect for Inklingo beginners and when you buy the New York Wheel shapes to print on fabric, I also add the Sunflower Quilt Design Book for you ($20 value, PDF download).

There is not any suspense about whether your blocks will fit together because the cutting and sewing lines are printed on the fabric!

Are you subscribed?

We have already shown you several other COTSG quilt tops on the blog and there are more to come. Please subscribe to the blog (top of right sidebar) so you don’t miss them.

Coming soon:


Only a small number of Inklingo quilters have found us on Facebook so far. Monkey has never been able to get his mind around FB, but we keep trying. If you haven’t “liked” Inklingo on Facebook yet, now is a good time. Thank you!
