Lucy Boston would be proud, don’t you think?
Every one of Fern’s blocks is just beautiful, and she kindly gave me permission to show some of them here. She has chosen wonderful fabrics.
“The Lucy Boston POTC quilt is my first Inklingo project and I doubt that I can ever go back to paper piecing. The results of Inklingo printing are so accurate and easy.”
Fern originally shared photos of her blocks with the Inklingo Yahoo Group. Her excellent photography shows the way she fussy cut.
Also on Yahoo, Fern wrote:
“Inklingo has transformed my stitching life! It really is so much easier and faster than EPP [English Paper Piecing]. And without open seams, the piecing looks so much better too.”
“I am having such a lot of fun and making remarkably rapid progress with Inklingo POTC that I am now relooking at all sorts of patterns for Inklingo possibilities!”
In her review on the website:
“I attempted and abandoned Lucy Boston’s quilt some 12 years ago. Inklingo makes it easy-peasy to make an complex, exquisite and magnificent quilt. I am having so much fun with mine now.”
We think Fern will inspire you to print the shapes on fabric with Inklingo. You can get great results and have more fun too.
(There are reviews by quilters for quilters on the Inklingo website for many shape collections. Have you written one yet?)
I can hardly wait to see Fern’s next blocks.
It makes me feel great to know that she is enjoying inklingoing them in Singapore and when she travels for her work.
As she wrote to me:
I am only kicking myself that I did not discover Inklingo earlier. Now I view every pattern for Inklingo possibilities and best of all, many patterns which I had found daunting in the past look easy with Inklingo.
Thank you, Fern! Every one of your messages and photos gives me a lift and encourages me to keep adding new Inklingo shapes. You inspire me.
MORE ABOUT LUCY BOSTON (VIDEO & MORE)
There are many other articles about Lucy Boston on this blog, including a free project file for Electric Quilt and several Lucy Boston videos on YouTube, but I think this one will always be a favorite for me.
Monkey and I will be back on Wednesday with our next Tute for Pieced Hexagons. You can catch up with Wednesday Tute 04. As Monkey says:
The best time to start inklingoing was seven years ago.
The next best time is now.
If you know a quilter who is struggling with the slow pace of English Paper Piecing, let her know about Fern, okay?
You can “like” Inklingo on Facebook with just a click. It is a great way to help spread the word, and your friends will thank you. (We appreciate it too.)
