We are not limited to easy-to-measure sizes and “trimming up” afterwards. These shapes are perfect for the 4.5 inch LeMoyne Star in the famous Dear Jane™ (G-8 Justin’s Comet) and many other designs (tab).

Everything is easier with Inklingo—no measuring, no templates, no worries about straight grain, a line to cut on, a line to sew on—and the download includes instructions for sewing and pressing, so jump in!

The shapes in this free collection are very versatile. There are other Inklingo shape collections with the same shapes in other sizes.

Free Fabric Sample

I’m sending a fabric sample printed with the free shapes to new-to-Inklingo quilters! (USA & Canada only) Please put “free fabric sample’ in the comment on your order. Normally, address is optional on free orders but of course, I need it if you want the fabric sample.

“I am enjoying Inklingo so much so far. There is something about the way this works that appeals. Also, everything is explained so thoroughly. I love this!” – Patty in CA

“I have been printing up inklingo storms and using it to complete quilt tops and convert patterns. It has been fantastic.” – Pam M in Australia

“I hate to admit that I sat on my Inklingo purchases until I finally pulled out the fabric sample you included in the book . . . cut it up, and sewed a star together. I’m not sure why I had such a fear factor going on about it, but after I hand sewed the sample, I felt silly about not just ‘doing it!'” – JoJo in Oregon

“I have finished my first sample and found the technique very easy and it is the first time I have completed a star of any kind without a botched up centre. Very pleased with Inklingo!” – Glenda in Victoria, Australia

Top Ten Tutes

Two months ago, Shannon in Missouri did not have Adobe Reader on her computer and did not know how to get it.

There is no stopping Shannon!

She needed a little bit of help opening her first downloads but now she can’t stop printing shapes for stars!

(Russ says one of the coolest things about using Inklingo is that you also learn other tips for using your computer, like how to download, how to navigate with bookmarks, and how to use print features you didn’t even know you had!)

When I asked Shannon for permission to feature her stars online, she wrote, “You may share. I made 5 more today. I think I should seek addiction counseling?? Well maybe later HUH!!”

    There is so much you can do with this collection it is hard to choose where to start. Having the cutting and sewing lines printed directly onto fabric is wonderful and I love it. The only problem is that now that I have tried Inklingo I am spoilt and want all the other collections too!!!

  2. Teresa W (verified owner)

    I just love putting these stars together! it is so satisfying and relaxing and perfect!

  4. Nancy (verified owner)

    Only recently have I fully dedicated myself to using my Inklingo pieces printed from the Free Diamond/Triangles/Square collection. So wonderful to just print out the pieces, cut, and BEGIN sewing so QUICKLY! Why did I wait so long to try something I now carry around with me everywhere. No more making templates, tracing, cutting, sewing, OOPS! not quite right, back to the drawing board.
    Now, each and every time, the pieces are accurate, the sewing line perfect, and the bits of time here and there quickly add up to finished blocks. Sew as quickly or as slowly as you like; there is not much else to slow you down. So much more time to spend handpiecing and I do enjoy handpiecing. Why did I wait so long?

  5. Leslie McS (verified owner)

    I had been looking at Inklingo for a while and when the free collection came out it was just the temptation I needed to get started printing on fabric. The pieces go together so easily and with none of the marking that used to drive me crazy.

  10. Jillian (verified owner)

    What a generous freebie this is! I’ve used it for quilt blocks (LeMoyne especially), pin cushions, puzzle balls/baby toys, etc., etc. I love the accuracy of Inklingo–what an easy way to get perfect seams! Can’t get more accurate than stitching lines and matching points!

    I was thrilled at how accurate and perfect this Lemoyne star came out the first time I made it! I think the 6-inch star is going to be my next purchase!

  19. Barbara (verified owner)

    I had heard about Inklingo on e-mail lists. I took a hand piecing class and loved it so decided to try Inklingo. I started with the FREE LeMoyne star. You can do so many things just with that!! I have bought a book and several shapes since then – and usually Linda has a free design book for a new shape. They are very inspiring.

  20. Judy M in Ormond Beach (verified owner)

    In making my DGS’s quilt, I wanted perfectly pieced stars. After one false start tring to machine piece, I converted to printing the stars and hand piecing them. The Quilt won a First Place ribbonm and the comments included “Wonderful Piecing”. Thanks, Linda

  21. Jeannette (verified owner)

    With Inklingo everything matches perfectly.I started quilting in 1992 and never attempted inset angles,curves or hexagons until I started using Inklingo.Now no pattern is off limits.It’s the best and easiest system on the market.I love it.

  22. Maryam (verified owner)

    What a great way to get started using the Inklingo system! Now I use these shapes wherever I can so I can have the perfect points I always dreamed of! I am a machine piecer, and I wanted to let you all know that Inklingo makes it even easier for me! Being a part of the Yahoo group has also been a great help. The members are very helpful whenever somebody has a question, no matter how small or trivial you may think it is.

  23. Claudia (verified owner)

    This takes the hard out of matching points! Guarantees perfection. I’ve stopped using any other technique!

  24. Joan Cumming (verified owner)

    The LeMoyne star was my first Inklingo project that I tried. I was hooked from the start, and now have most collections.. I know there is no better way to do piecing than this. Everything fits together perfectly and its a joy to join the peicers together.The group is the most wonderful and helpful group of people I have known on the internet. You get encouragement at every step. step. Inklingo is the best!

    PERFECT! That is what my first star is… just went together perfect. I sure am proud of the perfect center, but all I had to do was sew on the line… couldn’t be easier. Thank you thank you, Linda and Monkey. I will forever after always be an Inklingoist! Inklingo is a quilter’s best friend!

  26. Salliejean H in Elburn (verified owner)

    I am getting as dependent on my Inklingo shapes as I am my rotary cutter. Thank you Linda and Monkey for this amazing, easy to use tool.

  27. Esther (verified owner)

    Very easy to make this using the Inklingo method. I recommend this for anyone who wants to give hand-piecing a try. All of Linda’s patterns are simple to print out and stitch. And if you get stuck, just contact Linda, and she is more than willing to help you. I love Inklingo.

  28. Charlsey (verified owner)

    Absolutely the best piecing technique on the market today. This was my first Inklingo product – After all it was free! I wouldn’t consider piecing another way. The instructions are simple to follow and you need very few tools – freezer paper, printer and fabric! The group is very helpful too. I would highly recommend this to beginner quilters through expert. Designers will love it too.
