New Inklingo Diamond Shape Collection

Inklingo Diamonds to make Hexagons


All of these pieced hexagons can be made with the 4 shapes in the new 1.5-inch Inklingo Diamond shape collection. The pieced hexagons have 3-inch sides (finished) and are 6 inches across from point to point.

Download the shapes, print on fabric, and let your imagination soar!

Inklingo Diamonds and Triangles


The 1.5-inch diamonds are perfect for machine piecing.

Monkey is well known as a “hand piecing snob” but even he sees the advantages of machine piecing diamonds with 1.5-inch sides.

Monkey’s movie includes our best tips for machine piecing inset seams. We use hexagons in the movie but the same technique works for these diamonds.

Inklingo print on fabric


Whichever size you choose, when you print the shapes on fabric with Inklingo, you have many advantages:

  • Portable
  • Precise, with perfect straight grain, crosshairs, stitching lines
  • Print and rotary cut several layers at a time to get a fast start
  • Alternate layouts for scissors cutting (sometimes saves fabric)
  • Alternate layouts for a choice of straight grain
  • Half and quarter diamonds (triangles) for more design options
  • No templates
  • No waste
  • No basting
  • No whip-stitching
  • Sew by hand or by machine
  • Sew some seams by hand and some by machine if you prefer (hybrid)
  • Ideal for fussy cutting (“fussy printing”) as shown on YouTube
  • Fabric requirements are provided
  • Compatible with any design that uses the same shapes
  • Can be used to rescue a quilt you started with English Paper Piecing

PIeced Hexagons


You can see all of the Inklingo diamond sizes on the Main Diamond Page on the website.

These examples use this shape collection. The possibilities multiply if you also have some of the other shape collections like

Inklingo 60 degree diamonds


As usual, the new shapes are at a very special intro price—but for a few days only!

Inklingo # 3 book & CD   Book and CD     Inklingo 60 degree Diamonds 1.5 inch   Downloadable

These diamonds are already available on the Inklingo # 3 CD. We still expect most quilters to prefer the book and CD because it is such an incredible value. (30 shapes and sizes + the beautiful book-on-paper!)

This shape collection was requested by quilters who want to make 3-inch pieced hexagons like Candied Hexagons, but have Mac without Windows. (The #3 CD requires Windows.)

  1. Hi Fern! Great minds think alike, eh? I knew you were interested in these and you gave me that little push to get it finished. Thank you! Hugs, Linda & Monkey

  2. Hi Debbie! GOOD NEWS! 2 inch diamonds are available already. The diamonds are in one shape collection and there are two sizes of triangles in another, so there are even more possibilities. With 2 inch diamonds, the pieced hexagons are quite a bit bigger—8 inches from point to point instead of 6 inches. That’s about the size of a dessert plate. The easiest way to find them is in the Index of Shapes under the Support tab on Hugs, Linda & Monkey

  3. Yipeeeee!! this is the final shape collection I needed to make the Candied Hexagon quilt! Thank you, thank you, thank you Linda (and Monkey too.) Now this magnificent quilt has moved up to the top of my “must make” quilts list.
