Castle Wall (Beyer 295-1) is a wonderful old design which was first published by Kansas City Star in 1931.
It is perfect for modern quilters who need a portable project. I like it so much that we decided on 3 sizes!
Inklingo’s precise lines for stitching and cutting make it easier, faster, and more precise than ever before.
Join the journey down this road to the Castle with us!

2. ALL THE USUAL ADVANTAGES OF INKLINGO
Faster preparation, no measuring, no templates, perfect straight grain, efficient use of fabric, exciting designs.
For example, it is simple to decide how much fabric you need because there are diagrams for every shape. Shop your stash for scraps, or get the latest fabric from a quilt shop when you’re “on the road.”
You can use a rotary cutter to cut several layers at a time (fast) or use scissors (portable). Just cut on the lines.
3. COMBO LAYOUTS
Combo layouts allow you to print all of the shapes for one fabric at once. Inklingo quilters love them!
Combos save time and fabric. It is also perfect for mixing and matching scraps from your stash.
Monkey insisted on SEVEN combos this time!
4. ENDLESS VARIATION FOR INSPIRATION
Every block includes the same shapes but we think we can surprise you with the variations, even without the bonus shapes!
5. BONUS SHAPES & APPLIQUÉ DESIGN
This is exciting!
If you haven’t tried back-basting appliqué yet, let us introduce you!
Why do we rave about back-basting appliqué? There is less preparation and each piece is always perfectly positioned.
There is a whole chapter about appliqué in The Inklingo Handbook and it focuses on back-basting.
6. CHOICE OF SIZES
When we started down this road, I just planned on making 9 inch Castle Wall.
One size leads to another. This trip promises to be memorable!
Each shape collection includes a few worksheets to get you started.
8. SPECIAL INTRO PRICE
$25 is great value, but $20 is even better. How can you resist?
Monkey has an even better idea. Buy The Inklingo Handbook first and use the $10 coupon code when you buy Castle Wall!
