Fiesta Gitana by Cathi with Inklingo

Cathi of Quilt Obsession has done it again.

Fiesta Gitana - Cathi Quilt Obsession

Her Fiesta Gitana is spectacular.

Cathi's fabric for No Waste Fussy Cutting with Inklingo

She gave me permission to show you what happens when you have a perfect fabric for Inklingo “No Waste Fussy Cutting.”

Fiesta Gitana - Cathi Quilt Obsession

Cathi printed identical sheets of fabric to get  sets of 6 identical shapes, and the results are flawless.

She has truly caught the spirit of the Fiesta, inspired by Willyne Hammerstein.

Cathi gets perfect intersections for her stars with a method we call “circling the intersection.”

Be still my heart! What a Fiesta!


This video uses Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses as an example but it is the same for any design.

Inklino No Waste Fussy Cutting

Printing the shapes on fabric with Inklingo makes the preparation go fast.

By the way, Fiesta was published on January 25th. Inklingo made it possible for Cathi to fussy cut and sew MANY Fiesta Gitana rosettes in a short time. You can do it too.

You can also print on freezer paper for traditional “Swiss cheese” fussy cutting, of course.

I have been writing about No Waste Fussy Cutting for years!
