New Inklingo Colonial Garden Shape Collection

Inklingo Colonial Garden

New today! Colonial Garden (Beyer 411-10) is ready.

It is an old design, published in the Aunt Martha Series in 1963. The opportunities for fussy cutting make it irresistible.


Print with Inklingo on fabric or on paper

Print the shapes on fabric with your ordinary Inkjet printer, cut and sew!

It couldn’t be simpler!


VIDEO - Machine piece hexagons


I enjoyed every stitch in Colonial Garden by machine. The seams are long enough that the method I use for sewing the insets for Grandmother’s Flower Garden worked perfectly. The VIDEO above shows hexagons, but it works exactly the same way for octagons.

Colonial Dresden Plate variation approx 6.5 x 6.5 inches


The bonus shapes are perfect if you want to use the Kite and Half Kite for a Dresden Plate variation . . .


Colonial Garden with a straight edge

. . . or to finish with a straight edge!

One Colonial Garden block is 15.4 x 15.4 inches, finished—a big block.


Hexagon Quilt Design Book


The sewing and pressing instructions for hexagons also apply to octagons, so when you buy Colonial Garden shapes to print on fabric, I also add the Hexagon Quilt Design Book ($20 value, PDF download).


Variations of Colonial Garden


I will be adding more articles and quilt designs for Colonial Garden on the blog in the next few weeks. Please subscribe (top of right sidebar), so you don’t miss anything, okay?

  1. This is beautiful. Is it easy to use. I will have to read up on this more. I want to order the pattern. how do i do that. can pattern be printed out on just paper. thanks, Janet

  2. This is such a fabulous old design!! Why is it making me think of the pale pinks and spring greens — oh, I know. Because it’s bitterly cold and winter and grey here. So you couldn’t have released a lovely garden collection at a better time!!!
