Inklingo  LEAF SASHING - 4.5 INCH



System Requirements
Print shapes on fabric with any ordinary Inkjet printer.


Shapes included

This Inklingo PDF includes shapes for leaf sashing, plain sashing, and plain blocks. It also includes a triangle (QST) which can be used with the sashing for on-point settings (4.5 inch On-Point Shape Collection) and an option for back-basting appliqué.

Choose from 3 sizes.

Add leaves to make flowers

This size works perfectly to transform any 4.5 inch blocks into flowers.

Traditionally, quilters have presented pieced blocks as flowers by adding appliqué leaves. This new sashing from Inklingo is a beautiful option.

A Choice of Methods

I sew these shapes by machine unless I need a portable project.

With Inklingo lines printed on the fabric, you can sew some seams by hand and some by machine.

Love the lines. Quilt more!

Example with Dresden Plate

See the All About Inklingo blog for a gallery of quilts using Leaf Sashing with various 4.5 inch Inklingo blocks, including Dresden Plate (above), Winding Ways, LeMoyne Star, Rose Dream, Log Cabin, and others.

The triangles in the Inklingo On-Point Shape Collections are required for on-point settings. (Available for 4.5 and 6 inch blocks.)
