NEW Inklingo Key West Beauty Quilts

There are THREE new shape collections today!

Key West Beauty with Inklingo

I’ve fallen in love with this design!

It is called Key West, Key West Beauty, Key West Star and Dakota Star. The earliest reference is to the Ladies Art Company in 1922.

This design looks fabulous with Castle WallInklingo LeMoyne Star and other 8-pointed star designs, so the possibilities are amazing!

Inklingo’s precise lines for stitching and cutting make it easier, faster, and more precise than ever before.

There are at least 8 reasons to love Key West with Inklingo!


Key West Beauty quilt


This month I will be blogging several times about Key West. It is an intriguing design and

  • a good intro to Inklingo
  • fun by hand OR by machine or both (hybrid)
  • fabulous for Fussy Cutting (above)
  • great for stripes or scraps
  • there is a choice of 3 sizes!

I will be featuring:

  • EQ project files
  • Monkey’s Cheat Sheets
  • setting ideas
  • A mystery?

One of the many quilts I have designed with these shapes is suitable for a mystery quilt. The Case of the Secret Garden (COTSG) and Celtic Solstice were in 2013. Is it time for another one?

Q. Would you be interested in another mystery? It would be a good introduction to Inklingo for beginners but there would also be helpful tips for experienced Inklingoists.

Q. If you are interested in a mystery, would you be interested in a wall quilt with 4.5 inch blocks? or a larger quilt with 6 or 9 inch blocks?

Free Diamond Triangles Square Shape Collection

IMPORTANT  If you are new to Inklingo, I always recommend starting with the FREE Diamond Triangle Square shape collection. Please visit the Main Beginner’s Page.

The FREE shape collection includes the first chapter of The Inklingo Handbook. With that and the Top Ten Tutes on the blog, you can be an expert in no time!


Inklingo - Print shapes on fabric with your Inkjet


Faster preparation, no measuring, no templates, perfect straight grain, efficient use of fabric, exciting designs.

Key West has all the usual advantages you expect from Inklingo.

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 your local quilt shop.

You can use a rotary cutter to cut several layers at a time (fast) or use scissors (portable). Just cut on the lines.


Key West Beauty Combo template


Monkey insisted on FIVE combos this time!

Combo layouts allow you to print all of the shapes for one fabric at once. Inklingo quilters love them! (You can print the shapes separately too, of course!)

Combos save time and fabric. It is also perfect for mixing and matching scraps from your stash.


Key West Beauty variations


The shapes in Key West are very versatile!

(That’s one of the reasons I am considering a mystery.)


Key West Bonus Kite


The bonus kite makes even more variations possible.

One size is enough, but 4.5, 6 and 9 inch blocks can be combined to make some fabulous settings. (See what we did with Drunkard’s Path and Winding Ways!)

Key West is compatible with 8-pointed stars like LeMoyne Star, Judy Martin’s Waltzing Matilda, and Inklingo Star, so you might want to choose a size of Key West that works well with the other shapes you already have. For example, if you have LeMoyne Star 6 inch, you might want to choose Key West 6 inch now.


Key West Beauty Worksheets


Each shape collection includes a few worksheets to get you started.

$25 is great value, but $20 is even better. How can you resist?

Hurry! The special intro price is for a limited time only!

This low price will be available for at least one week and maybe a bit longer if the idea of a mystery quilt is popular.

If you are new to Inklingo, you might want to buy The Inklingo Handbook first and use the $10 coupon code when you buy Key West!
