Inklingo Diamonds Everywhere!

Inklingo Diamonds


Sometimes diamonds are obvious and sometimes they are tucked into unexpected places like Castle Wall and Storm At Sea and Feathered Star.

How to keep track of them all?

Good news! When I updated the Index of Shapes with the new diamonds, triangles and pentagons in Willyne Hammerstein’s Passacaglia, I also updated the Main Diamond Page.

TIP Any time you are looking for a shape, the Index of Shapes under the Support tab on the website is a great place to start. (You are on the blog now.)


Inklingo Castle Wall


There is a long list on the Main Diamond Page now!

Personally, I love Inklingo diamonds because they are so much fun to fussy cut and I can get perfect intersections whether I sew by hand or by machine.

Some things are easy, some things are difficult, and some things are free!


Inklingo Kaleidoscope Stars


1. It is easy to sew diamonds by hand OR by machine or a little of both, thanks to the precise shapes with stitching lines and crosshairs.

2. It is easy to fussy cut diamonds because there are two great methods–traditional and No Waste Fussy Cutting.

3. It is easy to get perfect intersections where many diamonds meet and there is a video to show you how.

4. It is easy to find the right sizes because all Inklingo shapes are named with the finished size and they are listed in the Index of Shapes (under the Support & Goodies tab on the website) and under the Shop tab.


Half Diamonds are Triangles!


1. It is difficult to cross-reference half diamonds because when we cut diamonds in half, they are not diamonds anymore. They are triangles. In many cases, half diamonds (both ways) are included with diamonds.

If you think you are looking for triangles, you might not find them. If you think you are looking for half diamonds, you might not find them. The best thing is to look under both Diamonds and Triangles, but I’ll keep working on it, okay?

2. It is difficult to cross-reference all the ways to use diamonds on the website! Luckily, you can keep sewing while I keep working on it.


8 Pointed Stars with the Free Inklingo shape collection


There are diamonds in the free Diamond Triangle Square shape collection and that is the best way to start!


Willyne Hammerstein`s Passacaglia with Inklingo


If you have been following the Inklingo Facebook Page you have seen videos and photos of all kinds of blocks with diamonds, including Passacaglia and Millefiori Quilts.

You don’t have to have a Facebook account to see the photos if you click on that link.

By the way, just because you have “liked” Inklingo on FB does NOT mean you will see my photos in your Newsfeed, so please visit directly when you can. I hope you LIKE and SHARE too.

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 by email (top of right sidebar).

By the way, I was finally able to get rid of the horrible ReadyGraph software that was aggressively creating duplicate subscriptions and sending multiple reminders. I apologize for the inconvenience it caused.

  1. Hi Linda and Monkey,

    You probably have it posted somewhere, but how much longer are you going to have the Passacaglia on sale? And does anybody know how to pronounce that word?


  2. I must admit, I sometimes get confused about which shapes I need when I am thinking of a new project. And I have known about the Index of Shapes for years, but do I access it? No. Why? I guess I just forget!

    But my goodness, I’ve just clicked to head over there, and WOW! You have done an EXCELLENT job with the index! So many shapes and sizes are shown clearly, and just one click takes you to the collection! This is a monumental task and I don’t know how you keep up with it, but I’m a grateful quilter who is so glad you do!!

    Thank you!! <3 <3 <3
