NEW STAR POINTS
Cathi at Quilt Obsession blew me away with stars made with the new Star Points!
These are tiny! The pink box (above) outlines 3.5 x 4 inches. The star will be even smaller when the outside seam allowances are sewn.
I was thrilled that Cathi gave me permission to share her photos here!
It is hard to believe all of the Star Points were printed on the same fabric.
She positioned the freezer paper on the fabric so she could print 6 identical sheets with the new Star Points 0.5/1.0 inch.
That gives her sets of 6 to use with hexagons. (60° Hexagon 0.5 inch)
“No Waste Fussy Cutting” with Inklingo is simpler than Stack n Whack™ but gives a similar result.
Each star is a wonderful little surprise.
Cathi already had hundreds of 60° Hexagon 0.5 inch printed with Inklingo, cut, and stored in a pretty project box.
Cathi is a big fan of miniatures, so I knew she would like the new star points, but these are amazing!
Cathi also updates the PDF version of the Index of Shapes whenever there are new shapes and she always remembers to leave a review on the website after she has tried a new shape collection. (THANK YOU!)
“Inklingo really has made such a huge difference in my life. I know that were it not for you and Inklingo I would not still be quilting at all. But with Inklingo? It makes it SO easy to be creative. You release new shapes and I get design ideas that just don’t stop!”
Cathi does a little bit of machine piecing with Inklingo but hand piecing is her true love, so these new Star Points are perfect for her.
Normally Inklingo shapes can be sewn by machine or by hand, but these are too itty bitty to be reasonable by machine, okay?
A CHOICE OF SIZES
You can get the same effect with the larger sizes.
These are Add-On shape collections, so you only pay for the shapes you plan to use.
There is also a Star Point on the Inklingo Shape Collection # 3 CD (0.75/1.5 inch).
There are already several articles about Star Points on the blog, so you can download and start sewing right away.

- Star Points 1.5/3.0 inch
Cinema Paradiso is one of my favorite movies to re-watch while I am sewing.

Cathi is a good friend and a constant inspiration to me. Inklingo brought us together. I think you will want to subscribe to her blog because she is always sewing something interesting!
