Inklingo Quilters are Printing and Sewing!

From Canada to California to Mexico to Australia to France to Denmark and everywhere in between, quilters have been printing and sewing Inklingo shapes and making beautiful blocks.

I have permission to share a few.

Patchwork of the Crosses by Monica in California

Monica wrote:
“The 2 on the left were from Carrie’s Pieceful Gathering kits. The others I made up out of the fabric scraps I have… some of which didn’t really look like scraps until I fussy cut and put holes all over them!”

Absolutely beautiful work!

I love what Chantal is doing with the Silent Garden design. (Millefiori Quilts 3)

“I cannot resist to send you my first attempt with Inklingo. I have found a rythm….I am in a club and, although my “colleagues” are very traditional, they were all marvelled. I am sure some of them will do an Inklingo project next year. ”
Chantal in France

Amazing creativity. A first attempt. Très beau.

POTC by Beverley in Australia

Beverley has finished her POTC quilt top! She wrote:

“I’m so pleased to have found your way of piecing. I have almost finished my first inklingo project, a passacaglia quilt. So much more enjoyable than paper piecing!”

Absolutely beautiful work. I have shared more photos of Beverley’s beautiful quilts too.

Patchwork of the Crosses by Jytte in Denmark

Jytte in Denmark has shared dozens of her POTC blocks online, so you can see every detail.

Jytte wrote:
“My fabrics are reproduction fabrics, so they are older looking than the fabrics Lucy used, but they are so beautiful. Hope to finish the quilt some day – I use both machine piecing and hand piecing, just like you have shown in your book. And of course, I use inklingo.”

Jytte has captured the spirit of Lucy Boston with wonderful fabric choices. You are going to want to click on the link to see all of them!

Storm At Sea by Joyce in Ontario

Isn’t this amazing?

Joyce in Ontario has made two quilts so far with Inklingo. She wrote:

“The Storm at Sea was the first. I stumbled upon your site looking for Storm at Sea patterns and bought the 9” shapes. I had also been reading “Color Play 2″ by Joen Wolfrom and tried a colour combination outside my normal comfort zone. I really liked the results so my next two pieced quilts are also using your Inklingo method. I am enjoying the accuracy.”

I will share more photos showing detail of this amazing quilt and her Mariner’s Compass on The Inklingo Facebook Page too. What an inspiration!

Introduction to Inklingo

If you are new to Inklingo, this short video will bring you up to speed.

Starlit Star by Kathy in Mexico

I think Kathy must be planning an on-point star quilt this time. “This collection has so many possibilities..alone and with the other collections.”

Fussy Cut Capriccioso with Inklingo

Capriccioso by Willyne Hammerstein

If you look closely at Willyne Hammerstein’s Capriccioso (Millefiori 3), you will see something you might not have expected.

She did not fussy cut the kites for more than eighty 6-pointed stars—but she did fussy cut the squares!

Isn’t that cool?

 

Fussy cut bees for Capriccioso

I looked through my stash for a print that would have enough motifs for more than 300 squares. I did not have anything similar to the circles in the original quilt but I found this bee fabric.

I printed the shapes for Inklingo Capriccioso Large on ordinary paper, so I could preview it (above).

 

Willyne Hammerstein's Capriccioso

The square in the Inklingo Capriccioso Original shape collection is only 0.75 inch, but the larger size (1.25 inch) works.

 

Preview for fussy cutting

It also made me wonder about fussy cutting the other three shapes in Capriccioso.

 

Fussy cut pentagons

1. TRADITIONAL FUSSY CUTTING

No matter which shape I decided to fussy cut, for the bees I would use freezer paper and traditional “Swiss cheese” fussy cutting.

 

Measure the repeat in the fabric

2. INKLINGO NO WASTE FUSSY CUTTING

If I had a suitable fabric to fussy cut the kites for the stars, Inklingo No Waste Fussy Cutting would be much faster and use the fabric efficiently.

Just print sets of 6 identical sheets of fabric to get sets of 6 identical kites. (It is similar to Stack n Whack but without the stacking and whacking.)

 

Capriccioso with fussy cut stars

NO ACRYLIC, NO PAPERS!

As usual, when you have Inklingo, there are TWO methods of fussy cutting and you don’t need to spend money on acrylic shapes or papers, so you can buy more fabric for even more fussy cutting!

Capriccioso with Inklingo

So many ideas, so many quilts to make. Life is good.

Fussy Cutting with Inklingo – Part 2

There are two methods of fussy cutting with Inklingo.

1. Traditional – Printing templates to make Swiss cheese of the fabric.
2. No Waste Fussy Cutting – Printing identical sheets of fabric.

In this installment:

  • Choosing fabric for No Waste Fussy Cutting
  • Tips for printing identical sheets of fabric

 

Stack N Whack™

FABRIC FOR FUSSY CUTTING

The key to Inklingo No Waste Fuss Cutting is choosing the right fabric. If you get that right, everything else falls into place.

 

Fabric for fussy cutting

Any fabric that works for Stack N Whack™, Kaleidoscope Stars, One Block Wonder and similar techniques works for Inklingo No Waste Fussy Cutting.

If you have any of those books, the information about choosing fabric also applies to Inklingo.

 

Fabric for fussy cutting

Window templates are a simple, easy, reliable way to determine the suitability of a fabric for fussy cutting a particular shape and size.

For me, a window template works much better than acrylic shapes (and costs nothing!).

If you have a folding mirror, you might find it helpful to see the effect. When you get a little bit of experience, you won’t need the mirror anymore.

 

Fabric for fussy cutting

I can see great possibilities for this fabric! (No folding mirror or acrylic needed!)

If you use a window template, you don’t have to remember any rules but you will probably notice some common characteristics:

  • overall designs without a lot of plain background
  • medium to large designs, depending on the size of the shape
  • at least 3 or 4 colors
  • variety of lines
  • shapes with defined edges
  • high contrast

.

Fabric for fussy cutting

FIND THE REPEAT

The next step is to find the repeat in the fabric. This is the same as Stack N Whack™ and other kaleidoscope techniques.

If you have ever hung wallpaper, you are familiar with this idea. A “repeat” is the measurement parallel to the edge (selvage) from one motif to the next, where the design starts over again.

In the illustration above, I isolated one blue flower. No matter what part of the design you choose, the measurement to the next identical motif will be the same, so you can choose any easily identifiable shape as your starting point.

.

How to find the repeat in the fabric

MEASURE THE REPEAT

The length of the repeat will determine how much fabric you need.

For example, 6 repeats of 12 inches = 72 inches (2 yards).

.

Fabric for fussy cutting

TIP  If you don’t have enough fabric to cut all the repeats along the length of the fabric, you can locate and use repeats across the fabric.

With many fabrics, you can use repeats from anywhere, not just along the lengthwise (selvage) grain. This can reduce the amount of fabric you need to buy.

It might also mean a favorite fabric in your stash will be enough!

(Stay tuned for another article with details for determining fabric requirements.)

 

Print identical sheets of fabric

PRINT IDENTICAL SHEETS

Are you ready for a little miracle? This is it! When you print identical sheets of fabric with Inklingo, you get sets of identical shapes!

In this example, I printed 6 identical sheets of diamonds for the Case of the Diamond Necklace Mystery (COTDN).

 

The Case of the Diamond Necklace Mystery Quilt

That gives me sets of 6 identical diamonds to make fabulous kaleidoscope stars.

For 36 diamonds for the COTDN mystery quilt, I printed 6 identical sheets of diamonds 4.5 x 8.5 inches. (That is one of the Suggested Custom Sizes in the 60° Diamond 1.75 inch shape collection.)

I cut off the selvage (as usual) and rotary cut a 4.25 or 4.5 inch strip long enough to include 6 repeats. Then I cut the strip into identical sections, iron to the FP and trim.

TIPS FOR PRINTING IDENTICAL SHEETS

Printing identical sheets takes a little bit more “fussing” but almost everything is the same as ordinary non-fussy-cutting printing. (Best Tips in the Top Ten Tutes)

For example, I always wash the fabric first. Always! Some say this will distort the printed design. That is exactly my point! If it is going to distort, I want to know about it before I invest my time and creativity!

 

Print identical sheets of fabric

My Canon printer is beautifully jam-free (another Top Ten Tute) if I leave about 1/8 inch of FP without fabric on the leading edge (red arrow).

If you have checked the Top Ten Tutes, you know that leaving the leading edge bare is easy to do for non-fussy cutting. I just position the freezer paper on the fabric at the ironing board with the FP overhanging a straight edge of fabric and trim the other three sides of the fabric to match the FP. (Best Tips in the Top Ten Tutes)

This step is slightly different for No Waste Fussy Cutting: To leave the leading edge of the FP bare and get identical sheets, I need to cut the fabric and the FP separately and then line them up. . . identically . . when I press them together.

 

Inklngo Fussy Cut Star

When I first started printing identical sheets of fabric, sometimes there were small variations in the diamonds. In the star above, you can see that the diamond in the 5 o’clock position is slightly different from the others. It is still a very pretty star.

 

Lucy Boston POTC

Not a problem? In some situations  variations add more charm for me than mechanical precision does. This is a fabulous example from Lucy Boston’s Patchwork of the Crosses.

 

Lucy Boston POTC

Lucy Boston’s fussy cutting often had variations—and her work is stunning.

In this second example from Lucy Boston’s Patchwork of the Crosses, the flowers are not positioned exactly symmetrically. In fact, if you look closely, they are not even identical flowers! I think I love it even more for its quirkiness. This happens many times in the POTC quilt.

 

Print identical sheets of fabric

This might be the best tip!

In situations where it is important that every shape is as close to identical as possible, there is a simple solution.

Before you print, double-check that the fabric is positioned identically. To do that, stack the sheets with an offset (above). Repeat for all four sides.

This simple visual check will tell you whether you want to re-position the fabric on some sheets to match the others.

If one sheet just will not match, you can cut another sheet that will—if you have enough fabric.

That brings us to a new topic for a future article: How to determine yardage requirements for fussy cutting. I have written about this before (and the blog is searchable). I have more info about using Inklingo templates for traditional Swiss cheese fussy cutting too.

In the meantime, I hope you are following The Case of the Diamond Necklace Mystery Qult.

The mystery quilt is very pretty without fussy cutting but I hope I have tempted you to try it!

Fussy Cutting with Inklingo – Part 1

Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses

In the 1950s and 1960s, Lucy Boston was a pioneer of fussy cutting and she created fascinating effects with simple shapes, like her Patchwork of the Crosses (POTC), above.

By artistic use of designs in the fabric, she created masterpieces.

 

Fussy Cut Clamshells

No matter what the shape—clamshells, hexagons, diamonds, pentagons, squares, anything–there is a big reaction when I post fussy cutting on the Inklingo page on Facebook. It is a phenomenon on Pinterest too.

Surprising effects! .

 

Swiss cheese fabric

Lucy Boston acknowledged that traditional methods of fussy cutting are wasteful and that is not consistent with the traditional ideas of quilting—but we all love the look!

 

Lucy Boston Patcwork of the Crosses

The brilliance of Lucy Boston was the way she used the designs in the fabric, not her sewing method!

 

Inklingo Kaleidoscope Stars

Of course, Lucy Boston was sewing at a time when there were no rotary cutters (gasp), no acrylic templates (or plastic garbage floating around the Galapagos Islands), and very limited resources.

 

Print hexagons on fabric

Lucy Boston was ahead of her time, going where other quilters feared to tread, so if she was alive today, I think she would be printing with Inklingo, rotary cutting and sewing with a running stitch. The incredible selection of fabric available now would feed her creative soul!

 

Print hexagons on fabric

It makes me sad to think how many more exquisite quilts Lucy Boston could have finished if she did not use paper piecing! All those hours basting—and removing basting!

Stack n Whack ™, Kaleidoscope Stars, One Block Wonder and other riffs on this theme have become popular in the last 15 years or so.

Now, Inklingo makes it easier than ever to get astonishing effects with simple techniques.

TWO METHODS OF FUSSY CUTTING 

With Inklingo, there are TWO ways to get fabulous fussy cut effects!

  1. Traditional Fussy Cutting – by printing freezer paper templates to make Swiss Cheese of the fabric (The sewing lines are marked manually.)
  2. No Waste Fussy Cutting – by printing identical sheets of fabric! (The cutting and sewing lines are printed.)

 

Print identical sheets of fabric

Printing identical sheets of fabric with Inklingo makes fussy cutting more fun and saves waste! The effect is fabulous.

With either method of fussy cutting, you can use a rotary cutter or scissors and cut several layers at a time. No basting, no whip-stitching, no removing templates.

Stay tuned for more:

  • How to choose fabric for fussy cutting.
  • How to print identical sheets of fabric.
  • How to determine yardage requirements.

 

The Case of the Diamond Necklace Mystery Qult

The new COTDN mystery quilt is very pretty without fussy cutting but it is a nice small project, so we’re hoping to tempt you.

I hope you will subscribe to the blog (top of right side-bar), so you don’t miss the details.

Tessellating for Clamshell Quilts

Clamshell templates

It is amazing to see the many ways this simple shape can be used when you print Clamshells on fabric with Inklingo!

This shape fits together like a mosaic without overlapping or gaps and that is “tessellating.” That makes some wonderful quilt designs and settings!

 

Traditional Clamshell Quilt Design

The new Inklingo Clamshell shape collections include the worksheet for a traditional layout.

Main Clamshell Page (Several Sizes, Downloadable)

 

The new Inklingo Clamshell shape collections include the worksheet for a traditional layout.

You can be happy as a clam sewing this wonderful shape into rows.

Use three fabrics, or go scrappy for “Clam Chowder” by printing on charms like the ones in previous articles on this blog.

 

Clamshell Quilt 4 patches

Clamshells also make intriguing 4-patches.

I’ve been sharing ideas like this on the Inklingo page on Facebook too.

I hope you visit there every day! Just because you have liked the Inklingo page does NOT mean that Facebook will show everything I post there on your timeline!

 

4-patch Clamshell Quilt

Clamshell 4-patches are amazing! They can even disappear depending on the color placement.

 

Clamshells also make intriguing 4-patches.

The 4 patches can be sewn in rows or on the diagonal.

 

Fussy Cut Clamshell Quilt

If you want to spice up your clam recipe, you can print 4 identical sheets of fabric with Inklingo No Waste Fussy Cutting to get sets of 4 identical Clamshells!

 

Fussy Cut Clamshell Quilt

Clue: No Waste Fussy Cutting is similar to Stack n Whack ™ but without the stacking!

Just like traditional Fussy Cutting, fussy cutting with Inklingo all depends on finding the right fabric!

There are TWO methods of fussy cutting with Inklingo.

 

Clamshell Quilt Design

There are other variations too. This is just the tip of the Clamshell!

 

Fussy Cut Clamshell Quilt

I can’t stop tweaking until I get it right but . . .

. . . when you print the shapes on fabric with your ordinary Inkjet printer, you can afford to spend a little time perfecting the design.

The preparation and sewing goes fast!

Sew by hand or by machine!

25 Signs YOU are an Inklingo Quilter

Fussy Cut Cleopatra’s Fan? YES

Cleopatra's Fan with Inklingo

The sewing sequence is not always obvious for a block like Cleopatra’s Fan.

There are detailed instructions for sewing and pressing in the new Cleopatra’s Fan Quilt Design Book, (138 pages, PDF) free for a limited time.

 

Inklingo Cleopatra's Fan

When you realize it is sewn in rows, it all makes sense.

Cleo isn’t difficult to sew by machine because the curves are so gentle.

 

Inklingo Cleopatra's Fan

That center seam is important if you will be machine piecing the whole block.

On the other hand, since Inklingo quilters do so much fussy cutting (Passacaglia, Ballet, Patchwork of the Crosses POTC, hexagons, etc.), I could not help but ponder  . . . .

Wouldn’t that look GREAT with a fussy cut flower?

Could I give up that center seam?

 

Inklingo Cleopatra's Fan

So I tried it!

Aha! Another Inklingo “bonus shape” was born.

I sewed the Y-shaped center seam by hand. The rest of the block is easy by machine.

 

Cleopatra's Fan Templates on fabric

Print the bonus shape on fabric or on paper for templates!

 

Cleopatra's Fan with Inklingo

Cathi Godwin at Quilt Obsession shared a photo of her first Inklingo Cleopatra’s Fan block. She used the bonus shape, so her block has 19 pieces instead of 20. It is trickier to sew by machine without the center seam, so Cathi sewed by hand and the results are worth it! See Cathi’s Cleo from the back too!

 

Inklingo Cleopatra's Fan

In addition to printing on fabric, you can use Inklingo to print on paper for a window template and a paper template. (Inklingo includes layouts of shapes with AND without seam allowances.)

Fussy cutting with freezer paper templates is even easier than using acrylic and you can have as many templates as you like.

 

Inklingo Cleopatra's Fan

Fussy cutting is just one way to make Cleo extra-special—if it wasn’t already!

In addition to the illustrated sewing instructions (hand and machine), there are TWO DOZEN worksheets in the Cleopatra’s Fan Quilt Design Book and more ideas for choosing fabric.

The design book is free for a limited time ($20 value).

Go ahead. Tell your friends, so they don’t miss it!

Dresden Plates in Key West – Part 2

Inklingo Dresden Plate with Folded Blades

In Dresden Plate with Folded Blades – Part 1, we showed you how to sew folded blades made with the isosceles triangles (Large Triangle) in the Key West Beauty 6 inch shape collection.

 

Inklingo Dresden Plate with Folded Blades  There are isosceles triangles you can use to make Dresden Plates in several sizes, including 2.25 inch!

 

Inklingo Dresden Plate with Folded Blades

All of the isosceles triangles are listed in the Index of Shapes under the Support & Goodies tab on the website. They make Dresden Plates in six sizes!

  • 2.25 inch with Key West 4.5 inch Small Triangle
  • 3 inch with Key West 6 inch Small Triangle
  • 3.75 inch with Castle Wall 9 inch Bonus Triangle
  • 4.5 inch with Key West 4.5 inch Large Triangle OR Key West 9 inch Small Triangle OR Feathered Star 15 inch Triangle
  • 6 inch with Key West 6 inch Large Triangle OR Feathered Star 20 inch Triangle
  • 9 inch with Key West 9 inch Large Triangle

Of course, there are blades for Dresden Plate in the Inklingo Dresden Plate shape collections too. LOL These are just a few bonus ideas.

 

Inklingo Dresden Plate with Folded Blades

I thought it would be fun to make an itty bitty Dresden Plate with Folded Blades. Take a good look because it’s probably my one and only!

It’s quite fiddly to work with shapes this small, so you might not want to go smaller than 4.5 inch Dresden Plates with the Key West 4.5 inch Large Triangle, okay?

 

Print shapes on fabric with your Inkjet

Love the lines. Quilt more!

On the other hand, if you like itty bitty, this is the easiest way to do it. You can print 8 Small Triangles from the Key West Beauty 4.5 inch shape collection on a scrap only 3.25 x 5.5 inches (landscape).

Monkey says the 2.25 inch plates are for the select group of quilters who like 60° Hexagons 0.25 inch too!
