You can have all of the usual advantages of Inklingo—faster preparation, no measuring, no templates, perfect straight grain, precision corners, efficient use of fabric, and exciting designs.
The Joseph’s Coat 6-inch shape collection includes 2 shapes for Joseph’s Coat quilt blocks PLUS back-basting layouts, in case you prefer appliqué.
The melons measure 6 inches from point to point, so this circle is 12 inches across. There is a smaller size for Joseph’s Coat with 4-inch melons which measures 8 inches across.
If you are new to curved piecing, this is the perfect way to start.
Make all of your friends envious of this one! Your Coat of Many Colors can be a great stash buster.

Joseph’s Coat of Many Colors
Isn’t this a perfect Coat of Many Colors? Karen Goad hand pieced her Joseph’s Coat with Inklingo, 104 x 107 inches, using Hoffman Watercolor Bali Batiks and Moda Marbles. Karen has written about this on her blog, Karen’s Quilting.
Cathi used a lovely, soft palette. Her Joseph’s Coat is quilted and bound with scallops. Cathy wrote: “The entire quilt was pieced by hand using Inklingo. I couldn’t have made this quilt without it. Inklingo made it easy peasy.”
Love the lines. Quilt more!

Curves and Inklingo go together like Oreos and milk! The printed stitching lines, matching points and design worksheets make this pattern a delight to piece.

I loved these shapes. I just finished making a queen size quilt from these, the curves are easy, no clipping, I used very few pins. I would definitely recommend this pattern to everyone.

This may well be my most favorite Inklingo collection to date. Easy to print.. just two shapes.. goes together beautifully, and is perfect mindless piecing for those days when you just want some relaxing sewing time. Goes together so perfectly I didn’t even have to clip the curves. The hardest part was picking out my fabric!! This would make a great choice for someone learing to hand piece or a beginning Inklingoist.

Wow! Such a great old design made so amazingly achievable thanks to Inklingo’s perfect stitching lines & matching points. The rotary cutter has a new blade, the freeer paper is ready and the printer’s going to be smoking!
