Hugs and Kisses for a Modern Quilt and a Winner!

Modern Baby Quilt

Recently I’ve been playing with the new Inklingo for Quilted Diamonds shape collection with a baby quilt in mind.


Modern Baby Quilt

These two are called Hugs and Kisses, for obvious reasons. They both use Marcus Fabrics Subtle Sunsets.

You can see some traditional “modern” interpretations here and here.

How do you interpret “modern” in your quilts? Is this something that interests you or are you just itching to make these symmetrical?


The winner of the free issue of the new online magazine, Hexie Love is Sandi! Congratulations!

Sandi’s comment:
I haven’t tried Inklingo but it does sound interesting.  Thanks for a chance to win and also for the free design book.

Julia Wood will contact Sandi with information about how to download and open the issue of Hexie Love.


Print on fabric with Inklingo


We’ve been so preoccupied with Willyne Hammerstein’s Millefiori Quilts 2 and Julia Wood’s Hexie Love Blog Hop that we have not spent as much time on Quilted Diamonds 2 as the occasion deserves!

I will keep the special sale price of $15 on the new Inklingo for Quilted Diamonds shape collection for a few more days. Main Quilted Diamonds Page

There are FAQ about Quilted Diamonds on the blog.

I post one or two photos on Facebook every day, but Facebook only shows my photos to about 20% of the quilters who have “liked” the Inklingo Facebook Page, so the best way to stay up to date is to subscribe to the blog (top of right sidebar).


Modern Baby

If you follow Inklingo on Facebook, you have met our modern “baby” already.

If you are on Facebook, please “like” and “comment” and “share” my photos. It makes it more fun for everyone.

It is such a beautiful spring day here that it makes me think of sewing on the front porch again. That’s what I’ll be thinking about when I rake leaves out of the flower beds this afternoon.

  1. Congratulations to Sandi – now she will truly get as addicted to Inklingo, I bet, as the rest of us!!
    The Inklingo for QD collection is huge! Having made a QD2 quilt using a setting that used many, many plain diamonds I can only say I wish I’d had Inklingo for QD then. It is awesome to have those setting shapes for QD quilts available to print on fabric!!

  2. Hi Linda and Monkey
    I just received my quilted diamonds and the second of Millefiori Quilts 2 today. I have started on the La Passacaglia quilt and have the first 4 rosettes done. Will post a photo soon. Having sooo much fun. Thanks very much.

  3. Is THAT the baby that needs a quilt? Are you sure she will appreciate it? Congrats to Julia. She can now be infected with the same bug the rest of us have–Inklingo.
