Kaleidoscope Stars and Little Miracles

Russ is nice about it but he doesn’t truly understand what a miracle it was to find such a great background fabric for my Kaleidoscope Stars in the very first quilt shop I visited.


Inklingo Kaleidoscope Star

I sewed 11 more stars last night while we watched Foyle’s War together on Detroit PBS.

These are just a few of my favorites.

They are not sewn to the background yet, but I am able to get a preview through the miracle of Photoshop. Instant gratification.

A quilting snack but no empty calories while I watched TV. (It’s a miracle!)

The patterns in the middle are like little miracles too, thanks to the Inklingo No Waste Fussy Cutting method.

Each seam on a 1.25 inch 60° Diamond only takes 3 loads of the needle.

10 minutes. Done.


Inklingo Hexagons 1.25 inch

I’ve started printing the 60° Hexagon 1.25 inch to go with them.

Inklingo‘s ultra fine lines would seem like a miracle to our grandmothers, don’t you think?

  1. Linda, your kaleidoscopes are beautiful. That is a perfect background for your stars. I have been collecting fabric and can’t wait to start mine. I’d like to finish the Inklingo project I’ve started first. I’m really enjoying the process. My granddaughters (10 and 9) are really loving this too. We spent over three hours piecing yesterday and they didn’t want to stop.
    I love Inklingo so much. Thank you.

  2. Now that you mention it, that background color is the perfect match for my sofa. It has been a difficult color to find for some years. Hmmm….. you really aren’t planning to keep those stars, are you?

  3. I guess I am the only person out in the quilt-online sphere who isn’t going all gah-gah about the stars or hexies LOL
    I think they are pretty and can see why so many are excited but maybe I have too many irons in the fire (or in the quiltroom) to jump onboard.
    That being said love the soft green for your lovely stars in progress!
