Inklingo Pinwheels on Point

The new On-Point shape collections were requested by Inklingo quilters who wanted to turn their blocks for a new look.

Of course, Inklingo Baskets look their best turned on point.

There are 3 sizes of baskets available and thanks to the new shape collections, now all of them can be set on point with Inklingo.


Inklingo 6 inch qullt blocks

There is a long list of 6 inch blocks you can make with Inklingo on the website.

5 inch blocks are not as common, but a few quilters are making 5 inch Pinwheels with 2.5 inch half square triangles (HST).

Wouldn’t this make a great baby quilt? It is an easy design with Inklingo.

Every Pinwheel could be a different fabric.


Inklingo triangles printed with an Inkjet

You can print 4 HST 2.5 inch for each Pinwheel from a scrap about 4 x 7 inches.

There is a choice of triangle layouts, so one or the other will allow you to make the best use of your scraps. (See the Catalogue of Shapes in each shape collection for suggested custom page sizes and yardage requirements.)


Print on fabric with Inklingo


You only need to print one of the two fabrics, so Pinwheels are especially fast!

There is a detailed tutorial for making Inklingo Pinwheel blocks in Clue # 3 of Bonnie Hunter’s Celtic Solstice Mystery, including video.

With Inklingo, you can set 3, 4.5, 5 or 6 inch squares, like Dear Jane™ blocks, Winding Ways, Yin Yang, Log Cabin, LeMoyne Star, Sunflower, and many others on point! (Index of Inklingo Shapes)

Lewis just liked Inklingo on Facebook.

Russ says if your computer looks like this one, you probably aren’t on Facebook.

The good news is that you don’t have to have a Facebook account to see the photos we share on the Inklingo Facebook page and we think some of them will make you laugh.

  1. I’m really happy to see the on point collection…so guess I’ll be doing some more shopping! Inklingo will be keeping lots of people busy while all those new babies are sleeping this fall . We all know what happens after a cold winter lol.

  2. Hi Valerie, Thank you for writing. Inklingo PDFs allow you to print the shapes on fabric with your ordinary Inkjet printer. It saves time and eliminates templates. It works for hand and machine sewing and for appliqué.
    Please see the Quick Start Guide
    There is also video on the Main Lucy Boston Page
    You can probably make 3 or 4 POTC blocks with Inklingo in the time it would take you to make one with English Paper Piecing and the results are better because it is easier to get perfect intersections with NO stitches showing on the front.
    There are many quilter who have changed from EPP to Inklingo for POTC. Let me know if you have any other questions, okay?

  3. Can you describe how Inklingo works please as I am confused.
    I am making Patchwork of the crosses.

    Cheers from Valerie in sunny Sydney

  4. I am thoroughly enjoying all your movie references lately with new Inklingo captions. What fun! And Cath, I think pinwheels make a fantastic baby quilt! Setting them on point just gives them a whole new, pinwheelie look – like the little pinwheels we used to blow on to spin as children. Cute!

    Thanks, Linda, for keeping me so entertained on FB and with the blog! Fun, fun, FUN!

  5. You just solved a dilemma I’ve been wrestling with for a couple of months – trying to come up with a baby quilt design that would be quick and fun! And this is it. And I will most probably piece the whole thing by machine. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
