Carol’s POTC in Panama


Carol in Panama has made some spectacular quilts with Inklingo, including Patchwork of the Crosses!


Patchwork of the Crosses in Panama

Her Patchwork of the Crosses is precisely hand pieced (not EPP) and beautifully machine quilted by Margaret Gunn.

Each block is a work of art!

Carol used some of her stash of Kaffe Fassett fabrics and named this one “Thoroughly Modern Lucy.”

If you are lucky, you can see it in person in the Jacksonville Florida Quilt Show in September!


Inklingo Alabama Beauty quilt by Carol in Panama

Carol is also entering her Inklingo Alabama Beauty quilt, made with the Inklingo Orange Peel Deluxe shape collection.

Carol’s Alabama Beauty quilt is her favorite:

“Technically that was the most difficult quilt I have ever made – the massive number of seams that come together in the center was a challenge. Mine don’t have any holes and they lay flat – no pooching up in the center. Frankly I cannot imagine anyone making that pattern without Inklingo.”

You can see Carol’s whole Alabama Beauty quilt and more photos on her Postcards from Panama blog too.

Carol is also entering her Inklingo Pie & Tarts and her mini Drunkard’s Path with Inklingo.

Margaret Gunn has high praise for the precision in Carol’s quilts—and who would know the quality of the quilt top better than the longarm quilter!


Hexagons for Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses

No templates! Print the shapes on fabric, cut and sew!

Printing the shapes on fabric with Inklingo allows Carol to express herself with color and get the precise results she wants in a reasonable amount of time. POTC doesn’t have to take a lifetime!

Congratulations, Carol! Your beautiful quilts are an inspiration to me.

We love it when you share photos of your Inklingo blocks and quilts on Facebook.

Introduction to Inklingo

The video Introduction to Inklingo explains the three key ideas that make Inklingo work.

Carol has introduced her friends to Inklingo and she has allowed me to quote her on the website:

“We agreed that we would never have become the quilters that we are today if we had not found Inklingo.” – Carol and Beate in Panama

Please share my videos on your blogs and Facebook and please tell your friends about Inklingo!

  1. This cross pattern is wonderful and her quilt is just incredible. Really like your process. Have been busy doing other things but will be getting this pretty soon. Thanks for a great post!

  2. Very beautiful fabric combinations. I so wish sometimes I didn’t live in the boonies. I buy most of my fabric online and sometimes it just isn’t what it looks like. Or the texture is not what I expect I have not worked a lot with Inklingo yet. ( I have done a few things) But I am determined to be one of those people who finishes a project she starts. Again love your quilt. Very inspiring. Good luck at the quilt show.

  3. Wow! Fabulous quilts! Your beautiful fabric choices made them ‘art’. I would love to be able to select and use fabrics such as the fabrics you used in these quilts. Very inspiring! You deserve to win in Jacksonville.

  4. Carol, what beautiful work you do. Both quilts are stunning and the quilting on the POTC is outstanding. Wish I were in Florida so that I could see them “up close and personal”!

  5. Hi Mary, I’m not sure whether Carol used the 1 inch or 1.5 inch hexagons, but I hope she will see your comment and respond. There is a choice of 4 sizes from Inklingo.

  6. Carol, your POTC is gorgeous!!! gorgeous!!! gorgeous!!!

    I was planning it as my next Inklingo project, and have been collecting fabric, but it is already boring by comparison. Sigh….
