Expanded Inklingo Lucy Boston Shape Collection

We’ve done it again!

We’ve added a new shape and new layouts to an existing shape collection at the request of Inklingoists and pattern designer Joan Ford at Hummingbird Highway.


Hexagons for Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses (POTC)

The Inklingo shape collection 90° Hexagon 1.5 inch for the large version of Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses (POTC) just got even better!

New layouts! New shape!

If you already have the POTC shape collection with 1.5 inch hexagons, you can get the expanded version by logging into your account and downloading again.

It’s that simple.
There is no need to place a new order.
We are giving this to everyone who has the shape collection.

You can download now or whenever you like. Whenever you download from your account on inklingo.com, you get the latest version. The last time this shape collection was updated was 2011.

If you need a refresher, the Download Instructions are under the Support & Goodies tab on inklingo.com.

90° Hexagon 1.5 inch

So far, there are two sizes for Patchwork of the Crosses.

In May, we expanded the original shape collection (90° Hexagons 1 inch) to add a third layout for the hexagons.

Today we added even more to the 90° Hexagon 1.5 inch.

  • an extra hexagon layout to give you another option for straight grain
  • the half hexagon (2 layouts) – WOW!

The half hexagon allows you to make even more variations!

The half hexagon was included in the shape collection with 1 inch hexagons, but not for 1.5 inch. Now it is in both!

It is an advantage of the downloads that we can update shape collections like this. We can’t do that with CDs.

However, please remember that this has affected page numbering, so if you have old cheat sheets for printing, you will need to update them, okay?

We think this makes 90° Hexagon 1.5 inch extra-extra special.

If you have been following Inklingo on Facebook, you know that I have been working on two new sizes for Patchwork of the Crosses, so you will have a choice of FOUR sizes!

POTC hexagon shape collections with 0.5 inch sides and with 0.75 inch sizes are almost ready. Stay tuned, okay?


New view from my desk

The new shape collections would be ready by now, but I have been playing hookey with Russ. The result is a new view from my desk at Inklingo headquarters.

The mossy rock on the right is chipmunk-approved.


Changing the landscape

The muscle men have left and all that brown triple-mix will be planted with hosta, periwinkle and other ground cover. Russ and I have our work cut out for us!

It rained hard overnight, so I’m at the computer until it dries up a bit.

If you are desperate for the new POTC shape collections, you should pray for rain. The forecast for the next few days is perfect, so I might be outside more than I am at the keyboard.

The new landscape plan has been an exciting project for both of us. I’ll share a few more photos on Facebook.


Facebook is fun but the blog is still the best place for me to teach or write longer messages, so I hope you will subscribe (top of right sidebar).

I hope you will have a look at the new & improved 90° Hexagon 1.5 inch shape collection. See you on Facebook?

  1. A new extended shape collection what a treat!
    I have been looking at some fabrics in my stash. I think I will post a picture, yes I have a new camera finally.:-)
    Maybe some ladies could tell me if the fabrics would look nice for a POTC block.

    It will posted only later tonight because now is supper time.


  2. This opens up some fun design possibilities. Thank you for the bonus shapes!
    I’m glad there’s no rain in the forecast and you get to play outdoors some more. You have a beautiful view from your desk!
