More TOP 25 Contest Winners!
As promised, here are a few more of the Top 25 designs from the Electric Quilt/Inklingo Love the Lines Contest.
Only the quilters who entered the contest will have access to the Electric Quilt project files for the Top 25—a great prize!—but all of them will be featured on the blog.
There are descriptions from each designer in the EQ project notecards, but these tips will give you an idea of the creativity of these Inklingo designers!
The quilts were chosen for the Top 25 by the judge, Barb Vlack, EQ author and teacher. Thank you, Barb! Congratulations to everyone who entered!
The challenge was to design with Inklingo shapes in Electric Quilt to design quilts you can actually sew!
Kari Bauer’s Double Wedding Ring
Kari used the Double Wedding Ring shape collection and the free appliqué shape collection for Circle of Hearts. I love the dramatic black border.

Inklingo Stars By Cathi Godwin
Cathi used several Inklingo shape collections very creatively! Many variations are possible with Cathi’s layout because she used 6 inch blocks.

Jo Moury’s Storm At Sea
Jo’s use of shading is impressive, don’t you think? She added Sunflower to her Storm At Sea!

Elaine Stone-Arthur’s Storm At Sea
Elaine’s design is not obviously Storm At Sea, but this is probably the most versatile of all Inklingo shape collections.
(You can’t really trust me on that. I always see lots of possibilities with whatever shape collection I am considering at the time. LOL)

Christiane Wipplinger’s Storm At Sea
Christiane used Storm At Sea with 6 inch Yin Yang blocks for waves and boats! I would never have thought of this myself.

Anneke de Weerdt’s Feathered Stars
Anneke used Feathered Stars and LeMoyne Stars together. With carefully placed rectangles, she created an elegant curving effect in the borders. Wow!

You CAN sew these!
These are all complicated-looking quilts which are actually do-able with the cutting and stitching lines printed on the fabric with Inklingo. Check out the links under each quilt to see how.
You can design with Inklingo shapes knowing that you can turn your dreams into fabric creations—whether it is Double Wedding Ring, Feathered Star, or any other.
I have given you links to some of the pages on the blog and the website, but there are many more. Luckily, the blog is searchable (box above the header), so you can follow your interests!
Looking for more of the winners? We featured the Grand Prize winner and others HERE, and we’ll be back with more of the Top 25 soon, so stay tuned.
Thank you for visiting!

Such imaginations! Wonderful quilts! Would be hard to pick the best….they are all winners!!
Just when you think there is no more room to stretch designs a lot of great quilt designers break out of the box to show so much more. Thanks to everyone for the fantastic design winners.
WOW. How could you pick a winner from these stunning quilts.I have never been a Storm at Sea fan but after seeing Elaines red and cream combination and Christianes boats I have changed my mind. Everyone’s a winner. Jeannette.
Wau, thats beuatifull….
Some folks are so creative! I am Jealous! I am Envious! So where is my ying for my yang? So beautiful. I love that I am a member of the quilting community.
All of these quilts were fabulous and I’d love to see them some day in actual fabric. Like Cathie in UT, I just loved the Storm at Sea with the combo of the Yin-Yang and Storm at Sea collections. I kept going back to it over and over. What an ingenious idea!
OH I can’t imagine how someone could have chosen from these lovely quilts to pick a winner. I have to say that the Storm at Sea with the combo of the Yin-Yang and Storm at Sea collection is my personal favorite of all the ones I have seen so far.
Thanks for entering the contest friends!
Wow! Love them all!
