FUSSY CUTTING AND CHARM QUILTS See the Clamshell entries on the All about Inklingo blog with photos showing how to print charms with Inklingo.
STITCH CURVES BY MACHINE OR BY HAND
The shapes are laid out to use fabric efficiently, and at least some of the cutting can be done with a 28mm rotary cutter (red lines above).
Since the lines are printed on the fabric, you can use scissors, if you prefer.
USE SCRAPS OR YARDAGE
Custom Page Sizes allow us to use fabric very efficiently. Use scraps and nickels!
Use this Clamshell shape with any pattern, like the Clamshell Quilt in Kaffe Fassett's Museum Quilts(2005).
Love the lines. Quilt more!
