Print shapes on fabric with any ordinary Inkjet printer.
We're celebrating the reprinting of Quilted Diamonds 2 with a new shape collection for QD!
Quilted Diamonds FAQ
This small shape collection is a great introduction to Inklingo for quilters who sew with a running stitch à la QD. When you print the shapes on fabric, you don't need FP templates and you don't need to draw the sewing lines manually.
This Inklingo PDF includes the shapes for setting 4 x 7 inch 60° diamonds from my Quilted Diamonds books.
There are too many different shapes and variations in the hundreds of diamonds in the two Quilted Diamonds books to make a comprehensive shape collection feasible, but it is very helpful for the shapes that repeat over and over like the sashing, cornerstones, and plain diamonds in the setting for Love & Friendship.
The plain diamonds, sashing and cornerstones are used in the setting for Love & Friendship in Quilted Diamonds 1.
The bonus triangle (and its mirror image) are perfect for turning diamonds into squares.
Features of this Shape Collection (PDF)

Love the lines. Quilt more!
New to Hand Piecing? There is also a DVD lesson in Jane Austen Writing Table Quilts, which is on sale for only $14.95. (Act now, before we realize what we've done!)
OPTIONAL CD FOR EQ?
This shape collection includes setting shapes to print on fabric (or onto freezer paper). It is different from the optional QD CDs for the diamonds in Quilted Diamonds and Quilted Diamonds 2. The optional CDs required Electric Quilt (EQ4 or newer). The EQ project files include all of the diamonds to print on freezer paper.
See the All About Inklingo blog (tab above) for more examples of baby quilts.
