Willyne used only 5 shapes—including an irregular octagon—to design this necktie quilt. Notice the precision corners on Inklingo shapes!

The shapes are the same size as the original.

Pinwheel quilt variations

Setting the TIE shapes into squares (above) is perfect for chain piecing by machine.

Bow Tie quilt block

The BOW TIES in the border are perfect for hybrid piecing. Chain piece two corners to the square by machine and then sew the insets by hand. What could be better?

There are examples of hybrid piecing and fussy cutting in the short videos for Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses. Those videos are helpful for any design, not just POTC.
