SEW MIDNIGHT FIREWORKS WITH INKLINGO!
Inklingo for Midnight Fireworks is in the Shop now!
Willyne’s Midnight Fireworks looks complex but it only uses 5 shapes!
There are also a few Inklingo lessons which you may find helpful for this dramatic design:
- how to print on dark “midnight” fabric is one of the Top Ten Tutes (tab above)
- how to fussy cut with Inklingo (two methods)
- how to sew 8-pointed stars by hand
- how to sew 8-pointed stars by machine
- how to use Inklingo for English Paper Piecing, 8 Good Ways!
For this block, I printed the diamonds with Inklingo No Waste Fussy Cutting and sewed with a running stitch, using the technique for inset seams and curves in Quilted Diamonds 2 (book and DVD). If you are learning to hand piece, the two-hour lesson on DVD is what you have been looking for!
I am going to sew my next Midnight Fireworks block by machine by adapting the method for machine piecing a LeMoyne Star. Stay tuned for machine tips next time, okay?

I loved working on Midnight Fireworks! Printing on fabric with Inklingo makes it possible to sew this design by hand with a running stitch, by machine, or with English Paper Piecing (EPP).
Midnight Fireworks shows off the advantages of Inklingo, including printing on dark fabric! Combo layouts allow you to save fabric and save time. And of course, you know how much I love fussy cutting!
No templates! No measuring!
FACEBOOK VS THE BLOG—ARE YOU SUBSCRIBED?
I post a photo or two on Facebook almost every day. It is usually about quilting, but sometimes it is something happening at Inklingo Home Office. I love to share photos of your Inklingo blocks too!
You do NOT have to have a Facebook account to see what I post there if you go directly to
However, Facebook only shows my photos to about 20% of the quilters who have “liked” the Inklingo Facebook Page, so the best way to stay up to date is to subscribe to the blog (top of right sidebar).
If you are on Facebook, please post photos of your Inklingo blocks on my page and please “like” and “comment” and “share” my photos. It makes it more fun for everyone.
