Judy’s Clamshell Quilt

Judy in Michigan has a creative idea for a Clamshell quilt. She sent me this photo and gave me permission to use it.

“I tried to piece together the dark unit so you could see and gave up. I just threw them up on the wall. These were cut with an acrylic template and I just kept thinking how much easier and enjoyable they would be if they were inklingoed. They are work this way [with acrylic templates]!”

Monkey says there is no comparison between shapes cut with acrylic templates and Inklingo shapes. Nevertheless, a year or so ago, we added a comparison chart on the website.

Which would you prefer to sew?


A picture is worth 1000 words.

Thank you, Judy, for giving me such a great example.



We apologize for not having this shape available when you were ready to start your Clamsell quilt. We’re working as fast as we can!

Who knew there were so many great ways to use this simple shape?

PS  I used SEARCH (above the banner at the top of the page) to collect everything in the All About Inklingo blog archive about Clamshell on one page. Cool feature.

To see all of the shapes and sizes, please see the Index of Shapes.
