templates for Periwinkle Octagon quilt to print on fabric

Designing and sewing with octagons is similar to designing and sewing with hexagons, so when you buy this new shape collection I add the Hexagon Quilt Design Book (70 pages, PDF), a $20 value!

There are no instructions in the new shape collection because the lessons on the blog, the design book, and the free Inklingo shape collection will be all you need.

Why 1.32-inch Octagons?

This shape collection was requested by quilters who wanted octagons to fit with the diamonds, triangles, and squares in the FREE Diamond Triangle Square shape collection to make great designs like Pontiac Star, Cobblestones, Arkansas Snow Flake, and many other designs.

A Choice of Methods for 1.32-inch Periwinkle Octagons

I sew these shapes by machine unless I need a portable project. With Inklingo lines printed on the fabric, you can sew some seams by hand and some by machine.

These are just a few of the ways you can use the octagon and kite. The diamonds, triangles, and squares are from the free shape collection. See more Octagon designs on Pinterest.

Love the lines. Quilt more!

Many quilters choose hexagons for a portable project. Octagons are more unusual but allow you to use the same sewing techniques for stunning designs.

With Inklingo you can print hundreds of shapes quickly and sew from crosshair to crosshair with a running stitch. The fine, precise lines printed on the fabric simplify the cutting and sewing.
