Hexagons and Kaleidoscope Stars

I love love love the way my blocks are turning out for Bonnie Hunter’s Celtic Solstice but I am sewing CS by machine and that is not very sociable on a Sunday night date, is it?

So. . . .

Inklingo Kaleidoscope Stars

. . . . I took a break from the machine to relax with my Kaleidoscope Stars and a needle and thread. (You can click on the photo for a larger view.)

I have been making steady progress because I can pick it up any time I have a few minutes to relax. Hand sewing is perfectly acceptable when we are watching TV together. I think he likes it.

It is nice to have a hand project and a machine project on the go at the same time.

You might recognize the green hexagon fabric. It is Cabbage in my Celtic Solstice. It is so soft and silky that I am using it for both Celtic Solstice and Kaleidoscope Stars.

Bonnie Hunter's Celtic Solstice Mystery


I think even long-time Inklingo quilters might be surprised by the way the Celtic Solstice shapes go together by machine, thanks to the precise lines printed on the fabric. I can hardly wait to show you!

Inklingo has all of the usual advantages—plus a few unexpected ones.

Even Monkey was surprised, but everyone else has to wait until the 29th. We’ll try to keep you busy in the meantime.

Inklingo - Print hexagons on fabric

Since everyone is so impatient to start, I have been encouraging quilters to visit the Inklingo Quick Start page and Bonnie Hunter’s Celtic Solstice with Inklingo – Intro to see my fabric choices.

I find Inklingo a lot easier to understand than Facebook LOL, but maybe some of you can bridge the gap over there. I hope you will let them know you don’t have to be a computer geek to love using Inklingo!

We have workers doing a renovation to the outside of the house. It is almost 50F (10C) and the sun is shining.

Bang bang goes the hammer. If I have trouble concentrating at the computer, I might even sit by a window to sew a few more rows of hexagons!

  1. Linda,

    The Kaleidoscope stars project is looking lovely and I continue to love your fabrics/colors.

    I, too, am excited for the Celtic Solstice project to begin. I am planning things in my mind and using my laptop to print your informational pages, but unfortunately I am still stuck downstairs recuperating from my back surgery, so can’t get upstairs to the sewing room to pull fabrics for the project. Hopefully I will be well enough in a week or so to do so. Until then, I just keep things going around in my mind. I like the fabrics you have chosen for your Celtic project.

    I am so happy you have teamed up with Bonnie for this project – hoping this will help get the word out to more people about how great Inklingo is to work with.
