Even experienced quilters sometimes avoid sewing curves, but the precise stitching lines and matching marks—printed on the fabric with Inklingo—make a big difference.

Inspiration for Clamshell Designs

Clamshell shapes

1. In 2010, many Inklingo quilters were interested in a Clamshell Quilt-Along. They could see that Clamshell would be much easier with Inklingo than with templates.

NEW 2016 - 4 new Clamshell sizes!

When Inklingo quilters ask for shapes, we listen!

2. I was inspired by a spectacular set of quilted bed hangings in the collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London (V&A). You can see photos of it in several books, including:

  • Kaffe Fassett’s Museum Quilts (2005), especially pages 44-49
  • Quilts 1700-2010 Hidden Histories, Untold Stories, edited by Sue Prichard, V&A Publishing (2010), especially page 164

V&A

There are also images the Victora & Albert Museum site. Search for item number 242-1908.

3. Barbara Brackman wrote about an "Unknown Pattern" on her wonderful Material Culture blog. Who could resist?

This is a rare design because it is difficult to sew without Inklingo.

With Inklingo, the arcs of triangles are perfect for chain piecing by machine, or for continuous stitching* by hand.

*Turn a corner at the end of every seam and continue stitching without breaking the thread. (Illustrated in the shape collections)

I asked Ruth Oblinski if I could use her photo. She pieced this gorgeous Clamshell Pickle with Inklingo. Her comment: "It was a joy to piece." Notice the beautiful scalloped binding! You can see Ruth's other Inklingo projects on her blog. Thank you, Ruth!

Mary's Clamshell Pickle

Mary Althaus is an amazing quilter. She has been using Inklingo since 2006--the first day! In fact, she taught me how to hand piece in 1998 and was one of the first 3 people I told about Inklingo. I'll never forget her reaction. Needless to say, she was very encouraging! 

See more details on the All About Inklingo blog.

You can also see several more of Mary's Inklingo quilts on the All About Inklingo blog. 

Clamshell Shapes

IMPORTANT NOTE  If you are new to Inklingo, I recommend starting with the FREE Diamond Triangle Square shape collection.

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