Wednesday Tute 12 – Double Wedding Ring

Welcome back! This is our twelfth Wednesday Tute with tips for designing and sewing with Inklingo.

This tute includes some of my best tips for designing an entry for the NYC Mod Quilter’s Double Wedding Ring Challenge.

 

Inklingo Double Wedding Ring

WHERE TO START?

Need an idea?

  1. Decide on a size.
    Minimum for the challenge is only one ring and the large category only requires 4 rings.
    Four is enough for a nice piece on the wall of the guest bedroom.
    If you print the cutting and stitching lines on the fabric with Inklingo, you can finish in less time than with any other method. Maybe go bigger?
  2. Decide on traditional or modern.
    I have a small piece of very pretty rose fabric in my stash that would be perfect for 4 fussy cut centers, so that’s my limit. It is similar to Robert Kaufman “Damask Rose” and I think it will look perfect in the guest bedroom.
    I guess that means traditional this time.
    If you are looking for inspiration for modern, have a look at Victoria Findlay Wolfe’s Double Edged Love Quilt. It won Best in Show at QuiltCon and is featured in Quilter’s Newsletter August/September 2013/No. 435.
  3. Decide on the arcs.
    Pieced? Plain? There are many choices in the Inklingo DWR shape collection.
    Hmmmm. Let’s mix it up. I’ll use two kinds and call it traditional with a twist.
  4. Decide on regular or on-point setting.
    I chose the regular setting this time.
    There are several on-point variations in the video of 50 DWR Designs on YouTube.
  5. Decide on the edge finish.
    I want a simple, straight, narrow binding this time.
    There are a dozen other binding/edge options in Tute 10 and Tute 11.

 

Inklingo Double Wedding Ring

SAMPLE DESIGN

This one is big enough for the challenge.

Now that I have a design, everything else I need is in the Inklingo Double Wedding Ring Design Book (only $10—or free with the shapes to print on fabric, details).

Print, cut, sew.

The design book even includes a detailed pressing guide.

Want to know how big this will be without doing any math? Design Book to the rescue!

The worksheet in the design book shows me that the quilt will be approximately 25 inches square, which is perfect for the space I have in mind.

WHAT TO PRINT?

Next I need to count the shapes, so I can look up the amount of fabric I need. (Fabric requirements are included in every Inklingo shape collection.)

Again, the DWR Design Book is a big help.

 

Inklingo Double Wedding Ring

I grayed out the border in this image to make it clear that the center of the quilt is 2 x 2.

Counting can lead to mistakes, so I copy from the chart in the design book to record the shapes I need:

  • 4 centers (fussy cut flowers)
  • 12 melons (polka dot)
  • 36 corners (18 white, 18 brown)

In this case, the chart tells me there are 24 arcs , so I need to record:

  • 24 arc pieces (the one piece arc option) (pink stripe)
  • 48 arc ends (taupe)

Inklingo Double Wedding Ring Arcs

I could substitute any of the other Inklingo arcs, including Pickle Dish.

 

Inklingo Double Wedding Ring

This image isolates the borders so I can see what I need.

I could just count all the way around the quilt, but since this quilt is square, I just count one side and multiply by 4.

If it were rectangular, I would count across the top and multiply by 2 and count one side and multiply by 2. The simpler the counting and the simpler the math, the less chance of a mistake.

 

Inklingo Double Wedding Ring Quilt

This is one quarter of the border.

  • 1 Center (Quarter) x 4 = 4 (white)
  • 2 Center (Half) x 4 = 8 (white)
  • 6 Arc End x 4 = 24 (taupe)
  • 12 Arc Pieces x 4 = 48 (24 taupe, 24 polka dot)
  • 3 Melon (Half) x 4 = 12 (pink)

 

Inklingo Double Wedding Ring shapes to print on fabric.

By the way, there is no “half melon” in the shape collection. I can avoid waste by using the layout for whole melons with a Custom Page Size which will only print half plus the seam allowance.

 

Inklingo Double Wedding Ring shapes to print on fabric

In this case 2 sheets 3 x 10.5 with the Landscape setting in the print dialog box yield 12 half melons for the border without waste, and with perfect straight grain.

The matching marks printed along the curves make it easy to get perfect results whether you are sewing by machine or by hand. (Timeless Treasures pink batik.)

 

Inklingo Double Wedding Ring Cheat Sheet

FABRIC REQUIREMENTS

Next I collect all of my notes on the DWR Data Sheet or Monkey’s Cheat Sheet.

TIP  Use a pencil, not a pen.

I prefer to group everything by fabric, in this case:

  • flowers (fussy cut 4 centers)
  • white (18 corners + 4 quarter centers for corners + 8 half centers for border)
  • brown (18 corners)
  • taupe (48 arc ends + 24 arc ends in border + 24 arc pieces in border)
  • polka dot (12 melons + 24 arc pieces in border)
  • pink stripe (24 arc pieces)
  • pink (12 half melons in border)

 

Monkey's Cheat Sheet

You can see examples of Monkey’s Cheat Sheet in several places:

  • under the Support Tab at inklingo.com
  • Case of the Secret Garden Mystery – Clue # 2
  • Inklingo Periwinkle Quilt Reverse Mystery – Part 2

and others.

Isn’t it nice to know that no matter how complex or modern the design, it is easier and faster to sew when you print the shapes on fabric with Inklingo?

Double Wedding Ring Challenge

Monkey and I are hoping our little tutes will inspire you to enter a quilt in the NYC Mod Quilter’s Double Wedding Ring Challenge. There are some big prizes for those who make a DWR with Inklingo!

There are other articles on the blog already which will help you with the challenge. Several are listed in Wednesday Tute 09.

If you start with the Inklingo Double Wedding Ring Design Book ($10), it is refunded when you buy the shapes to print on fabric. (Details).

MORE WEDNESDAY TUTES

You can catch up on EIGHT Wednesday Tutes for Pieced Hexagons too.

We are planning a few more Wednesday Tutes, so please enter your email address (top of right sidebar), so you don’t miss anything.

Inklingo on Quilting Hub

QuiltingHub is a brand new resource for us as quilters. Monkey and I wrote an article about how to sew Flying Geese for the QuiltingHub Newsletter.

Please show your support for it by registering (free, just email and password). If you enjoy our Wednesday Tutes, we hope you will “like” the Inklingo page on QuiltingHub while you are there.

There has been more activity on Facebook lately, so you might want to like the Inklingo FB page too.

Thanks for visiting. See you again soon!

25 Signs YOU are an Inklingo Quilter

Inklingo Periwinkle Quilt – Lesson Part 5

Inklingo Periwinkle Quilt

A quilting friend requested a smaller version of the Inklingo Periwinkle Quilt for a wall hanging . . .

 

Inklingo Periwinkle Quilt

. . . so we designed Wall Flowers, approximately 39 x 39 inches.

An overall design like the IPQ quilt looks complicated because the “blocks” are not easy-to-identify squares.

Inklingo Periwinkle Quilt

Do you see this block?

. . . .There are 12 of them!

 

Inklingo Periwinkle Quilt

When we break it apart it makes sense. Beautiful!

 

Inklingo IPQ Cheat Sheet

We prepared a Cheat Sheet for Wall Flowers for you (download Part 5 below), but now that you know this powerful little secret, you can design a Periwinkle Quilt too.

Then you can print, cut & sew!

Inklingo Periwinkle Quilt

MACHINE AND HAND PIECING (HYBRID)

There are only 3 shapes in this quilt. Print them on fabric and you’re ready to “do the Inklingo!”

The Periwinkle design breaks down into perfect sections for a combination of machine piecing AND hand piecing. We call it an Inklingo hybrid.

When you have lines on the fabric you can combine hand and machine piecing and that makes it possible to finish in less time than with any other method.

I like to get a fast start by sewing four-patches by machine. Of course, all of the shapes are fun to sew by hand if you need a portable project.

 

Inklingo Periwinkle Quilt Part 5

We prepared this one-page guide to help you stay organized whether you are sewing by hand or by machine or a little of both. (Download PDF below.)

The parts are so pretty and so much fun to sew that we know you will actually finish.

 

Inklingo Periwinkle Quilt

3 options!

  1. machine piece everything by sewing from crosshair to crosshair
  2. hybrid—machine piece the kites (leaves), hand piece the  octagons
    (my choice)
  3. hand piece everything with lots of continuous stitching and portability

 

Inklingo Periwinkle Quilt  Blog Badge (right sidebar)

The Inklingo Periwinkle Quilt was dubbed a “reverse mystery” because you know in advance what you are making but the format is similar to our mystery quilt (COTSG), the Case of the Secret Garden.

 

Video - Continuous stitching by hand

HAND

This video shows how to sew continuously from one seam to the next with hexagons.

There are even more options for continuous stitching with octagons!

Of course, you can sew all of the insets by machine, and the video on YouTube for machine piecing hexagons works for octagons too.

Inklingo Periwinkle Quilt – Lesson Part 4

The IPQ lesson gives step-by-step instructions that everyone can complete together, but you know the design in advance.

This is a “reverse mystery” because you know in advance what you are making but the format is similar to our mystery quilt (COTSG), the Case of the Secret Garden.

I think you will see why I wanted to use Periwinkle Octagons to highlight the advantages of “hybrid” piecing with Inklingo.

 

Inklingo Periwinkle Quilt (IPQ)

An overall design like the IPQ quilt looks complicated, doesn’t it? The “blocks” are not easy-to-identify squares.

 

Inklingo Periwinkle Quilt Lesson

MACHINE AND HAND PIECING (HYBRID)

We love the IPQ because it breaks down into perfect sections for machine piecing AND hand piecing.

Printing the lines on the fabric with Inklingo gives us total flexibility and makes it possible to finish a big quilt with more than 2200 pieces in less time than with any other method.

The parts are so pretty and so much fun to sew that we know you will actually finish.

 

Inklingo Periwinkle Quilt by machine

I like to get a fast start by sewing four-patches by machine.

Of course, these are fun to sew by hand if you need a portable project.

Whether you sew by machine or by hand, you can’t stop with just one. It’s like potato chips—without the calories.

 

Video - Sew from Crosshair to Crosshair

MACHINE

The rest of the seams are inset seams, so we sew the four-patches from crosshair to crosshair—with perfect lines printed on the fabric!

My best tips for sewing from crosshair to crosshair are in the video for hexagons. It works the same for octagons.

 

Inklingo Periwinkle Quilt by hand

The rest of the quilt is perfect for sewing by hand—relaxing and portable and intriguing!

“Continuous stitching” means you can sew 6 short seams without breaking the thread!

It’s Zen.

 

Video - Continuous stitching by hand

HAND

This video shows how to sew continuously from one seam to the next with hexagons.

There are even more options for continuous stitching with octagons!

Of course, you can sew all of the insets by machine, if you prefer.

That’s 3 options!

  • machine piece everything sewing from crosshair to crosshair
  • hybrid—machine piece the kites, hand piece the octagons
  • hand piece everything with lots of continuous stitching and portability

Inklingo Periwinkle adapted for EQ

Overall designs like octagons can be a bit tricky but Monkey and I were able to do it with extra seams, so you can play with the design in Electric Quilt.

The extra seams make it look as if all of the octagons are half octagons, but you can make allowance for that when you count the shapes.

By the way, adding extra seams works for other designs in EQ too. (We’ll let you play with that on your own.)

 

Periwinkle Block for EQ

If you have EQ6 or EQ7, you can make my design bigger or smaller and play with color.

 

Inklingo Periwinkle Quilt (IPQ)

It is a great way to become familiar with the tools in EQ.

 

Inklingo Periwinkle in EQ

There are several different color variations in the Sketchbook. Doesn’t it look cool?

 

Inklingo Periwinkle Quilt (IPQ)

If you don’t have EQ, part 3 of the lesson includes worksheets to color in two sizes.

It is easy to add an extra row all the way around to change the quilt from about 73 x 73 to about 83 x 83, and you can creat a new version of Monkey’s Cheat Sheet too.

Inklingo Curves in Electric Quilt

Quilty Pleasures blog

Welcome to all the new Inklingo quilters who joined us yesterday as a result of the article on Quilty Pleasures, the Quiltmaker magazine editor’s blog.

We do our best to keep you inspired and to help when you have questions.

 

Annika's border on Ruth's COTSG

1. Borders for the Case of the Secret Garden (COTSG Mystery)

Annika at Stof Genoeg in The Netherlands uses Electric Quilt to turn her ideas into inspiration for the rest of us.

This border for Ruth’s black and red COTSG is just one of the spectacular borders Annika designed with the COTSG mystery quilt project file.

You can see them all at Stof Genoeg. Annika’s blog is in English AND Dutch.

I found it impossible to pick a favorite. She is GOOD! (Annika also designs Inklingo projects for EQ Boutique!)

The beauty is that Annika’s sophisticated designs are not difficult to sew when you print the shapes on fabric with Inklingo.

There is no mystery about COTSG if you follow the step by step clues. They are a permanent resource on the blog, and a perfect introduction to Inklingo for beginners.

 

ClubEQ March 2013

2. Quilts with Curves in the ClubEQ March Challenge

There are some fabulous Inklingo designs in the ClubEQ March Challenge.

I circled the designs on the first page from Laura, Erin, Charlsey, Missy, Beth, and Annika.

They used several different Inklingo shape collections like Drunkard’s Path, Sunflower, Drunkard’s Trail, Orange Peel, New York Wheel, Winding Ways, and Clamshell Pickle.

If you go to the Club EQ page and click on one of the little images, you will see a bigger version with all the glorious detail. You can also leave a comment for the designer.

Some of the other designs are inklingoable too, of course.

Everyone who entered a design—simple or advanced—receives ALL of the EQ project files for that month. That is a HUGE incentive to enter something, don’t you think? It is almost too good to be true.

I entered, so I got the secret link to ALL of the project files for March. Don’t you wish you had entered a design?

 

ClubEQ April 2013

3. Club EQ April Challenge

It’s too late for March, but it’s not too late to get smart in April. You don’t have to start with a dazzling display of EQ expertise! Everyone started as a beginner and your beginner design will be accepted.

Barb Vlack’s ClubEQ April Challenge is another fabulous one for Inklingo shapes.

You can do this!

You need to design a two color quilt (blue and white?) and then make it scrappy. It’s a truly fun idea and it couldn’t be easier.

You can even start with one of the free Inklingo EQ project files. They are all listed under the EQ tab (beside Top Ten Tutes) and there are tips for designing with Inklingo in EQ too.

There’s no excuse for not entering this one. You will learn something about using EQ and you will get a treasure trove of project files in May. Monkey thinks it is a no-brainer. (I can usually tell what he is thinking.)

4. The Inklingo Periwinkle Quilt (IPQ)

Overall designs like octagons can be a bit tricky but Monkey and I have a project file which we will share soon.

If you have EQ6 or EQ7, you will be able to make my design bigger or smaller and play with color.

Have you downloaded the first two parts of the lesson for the Inklingo Periwinkle Quilt yet? It is not just for beginners!

5. Happy Birthday to Driveway Barb!

This has nothing to do with EQ, but Monkey made me do it.

Or. . . . . maybe Barb will submit an Inklingo design for the ClubEQ April Challenge. How about YOU? Deadline is April 30. (Makes sense.)

Are you subscribed?
