WELCOME BACK, DETECTIVES!
We’re making Birds in the Air!
I am very excited about this clue. I think it is the best one yet!
I can hardly wait to show you how easy it is to sew 10 triangles with Inklingo—two blocks at a time—without cutting or sewing any triangles at all!
Sew 100 or 244 Birds in the Air for Clue # 5—and do it 2 at a time!
Bonnie’s Clue # 5 is on the Quiltville Quips & Snips blog.
As usual, Clue # 5 includes a one-page guide to keep you organized at the sewing machine.
This method of making Birds in the Air is faster and more accurate than sewing the triangles individually. Sew the stretchy bias before it is cut!
Sew an accurate scant 0.25-inch seam allowance. The lines printed on the fabric with Inklingo make it easy.
There is minimal printing if you rotary cut and machine piece.
Remember how we told you to save 100 Sawtooth Squares from Clue # 3? We are using them now!
Since I had those Sawtooth Squares, I only printed 7 sheets of the neutral (Vellum) to make 100 Birds in the Air for this clue.
This makes two blocks at a time. It’s like magic! The one-page guide takes you gently through the steps.
Every point is perfect.
Have you learned to print on fabric with Inklingo?
You aren’t old until you stop learning.
Love the lines. Quilt more!

Hi Claudia, You can see Linda’s fabric choices in each of the 5 clues. The swatches PDF is here:
If I have misunderstood your question, please write back and I will try again. Happy New Year!
Psst, Monkey. If you have power, please, please–post some pix of all of the Celtic Solstice clues you have made in your fabric choices. (If you have already teased us with your choices, I apologize. My computer decided about 12/15 it needed a two week trip to the “computer spa” and I have been in i’net withdrawal for the same amount of time.) Thank you.
O goodie, can’t wait to start. Ended up with a flu bug so I haven’t stitched a thing this week.
Hope you don’t lose power again Linda.
I LOVE this method! So magical how they turn out, isn’t it? Accurate and fast! Thanks!
Morning Linda and Monkey…just starting clue 5 by printing the one page and other instructions and then on to the fabric!
Stay warm up there in the frozen north.
