Clamshell Quilt design

There are many, many ways to use the new Clamshell Rose shape collection shown in Part 1 and Part 2.

This time, I am playing with replacing some of the whole Clamshells with half Clamshells to create new effects.

It’s mind-boggling! LOL

I have rushed myself to post again today before the special low intro price expires tonight at midnight.

I would like to play more with this one. Do you see birds or butterflies?

One of the 20 Inklingo colors will show on the back of almost any dark fabric and there are tips for printing on dark fabric under the Top Ten Tutes tab (above).

A completely different look using the same basic block!

It may be hard to decide on a final design but one thing is for sure. When you print the shapes on fabric with Inklingo, the preparation is faster and the sewing is more precise and more fun!

This is the same as the first one—but with one little tweak that makes me like this one even more.

How will you use these fascinating shapes?

  1. Oh, and thank you Linda, for swamping me with inspiration :-)!! Absolutely brilliant, gorgeous designs! ‘Versatile’ is an understatement for these shape collections!!

  2. I definitely see butterflies in one of those designs – and can just imagine some possibilities with fussy cutting/printing!! All these gorgeous designs with so much curved piecing make me giddy! 🙂

  3. These are so lovely! Funny, I assumed the sketches were created using EQ, too! Thanks for all this inspiration, Linda! Oh, and Monkey! 😀

  4. Hi Marianne,
    I did not design these quilts in EQ. In fact, I have not even tried to draw Clamshell shapes in EQ yet. 🙂
    I will see if I can figure something out, but so far the only solution I can see is to use 4 squares bisected with a curve for each clamshell.

  5. Love these. Makes me wish I was better at using EQ7 so that I could play and design these quilts in it…..But since I am not good at it, I have no idea how to create the shapes in EQ7 to design with….
