Cleopatra's Fan Quilt with Inklingo

While we were waiting to publish the new Cleopatra’s Fan Quilt shape collections, we shared a few designs like this one on Facebook.

(You’re missing out if you don’t check Inklingo on Facebook every few days at least! You don’t have to have a FB account to see what I share there.)

In addition to the quilt ideas, the Design Book includes detailed, illustrated instructions for cutting the shapes, sewing sequence, and sewing instructions!

And it’s FREE!

I think you might be amazed by how simple it is to design and sew these blocks with Inklingo. Even I was surprised when I started sewing.

    • Hi Carmen, You are right. Shar Jorgenson (Quilts from the Heartland) makes this block with acrylic templates by machine and she has a video on YouTube. However, Cleopatra’s Fan is an old design by Laura Wheeler, published in the Cincinnati Enquirer in 1934. (Beyer 363-11)

  1. Congratulations on publishing the best design book ever! This is a real stunner… and free? Wow!! Who would have thought there could be so many different ways of putting a quilt together with this block? I just love how that 2nd layout above appears to bow out in the middle too.

    Amazing collections! Thank you!

  2. The Cleopatra’s Fan Design Book is absolutely a must-have! The sewing sequence is invaluable – I printed out a few pages before I even began to sew last night. As usual, you pack a wealth of information into a book – and we are the lucky recipients of your phenomenal talent!!

  3. Linda,
    The Cleopatra’s Fan Design Book is wonderful. There are so many options, the design pages are great for planning. You pack so much information in your books that it makes it easy for us to be able to know exactly what we need in amounts of fabric and the color samples are true inspiration!! Now to decide which size shape collection to order!! Thanks, again!!
