It has been a wonderful spring at our house and I have been distracted by the flowers in the garden AND the Flower Power in Millefiori Quilts 3 by Willyne Hammerstein.
As usual, Flower Power is gorgeous and intriguing. All of Willyne’s designs are.
However, we’re doing things a little differently this time.
One difference is the size. In response to requests from quilters, the size is larger than the one in the book. Instead of shapes with 0.75 inch sides, these have 1 inch sides, so the finished quilt is larger too. (Details on the website.)
The cumulative difference between 0.75 inch and 1 inch might be bigger than you expect—and just perfect for you!
Another difference: So many quilters already have the 60° Diamond 1 inch shape collection that I made this shape collection an “Add-On,” so you don’t have to buy the same shapes twice.
The shapes are a little bit different too. At first glance, the new shapes for Flower Power look familiar but the partial hexagon is bigger than a half hexagon and the triangles are a new size.
Some things are the same. The new shape collection is on sale for a special low intro price for a few days.
I also add a Design Book as a bonus!
Not only that, the related 60° Diamond 1 inch shape collection is available for a reduced price too! That’s a good deal if you want to add them to your collection, even if you are not tempted by the Flower Power Add-On.
Some of you noticed how quiet I have been for the past few weeks. Most of the work I have been doing has been behind-the-scenes (website work) or out-of-doors but I am almost ready to start doing Live Videos again.
I have not forgotten about doing Live Videos. We have masses of tiny blue flowers (false forget-me-nots) in shady areas. My father loved Forget-Me-Nots. I love doing the live videos.
“Flower Power” is good.
Working in the garden has been good therapy. Some day, I might tell you all about the website work and changing my email software but it makes me too sad to talk about it yet. Eudora was soooo beautiful and I used it for email for 20 years. Now I’m using a different email service <sob> and I miss my beloved Eudora. Sorting through email is harder now but I will get better at it eventually.

I guess Inklingo has always been a little bit ahead of its time.
In fact, this month marks the 12 year anniversary of the very first Inklingo shape collection.
PRINTING ON FABRIC
This short introduction to printing on fabric will get you started. There is also a short video on the Main Beginner’s Page showing how I prepare fabric sheets for printing with an Inkjet.
Here are the links again.
As soon as the rest of the behind-the-scenes Inklingo work is finished, I’ll be back with more live videos. Thank you for visiting.
Happy Memorial Day weekend to all our friends in the USA!
