Notice the wonderful placement of orange shapes to create stars around the sunflowers. <gasp> A stroke of genius.

This shapes in this collection are the same size as the ones in the book.

When I introduced the new Fiesta Gitana shape collections recently, I gave you a link to party music from Los Lobos, La Bamba. It was perfect for a fiesta.

When I introduced the new Confetti shape collection, wedding music was perfect.

You Are My Sunshine has its own music too, of course. . . . . .Johnny Cash!

There are several other versions of this uplifting song on YouTube.

As usual, there are layouts to print on fabric (20 colors) or on paper or freezer paper.

Inklingo Videos

Willyne has inspired many quilters to hand piece her designs with a running stitch.

These three new videos use Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses as an example but the lessons about using templates, fussy cutting and hybrid piecing also apply to You Are My Sunshine.

Quilted Diamonds 2 with DVD lesson

Quilted Diamonds 2 is a wonderful book for anyone who is learning how to hand piece. The two-hour lesson on DVD is like taking a private lesson with me.

Willyne’s assembly instructions are illustrated in the book. You need the book but you don’t need acrylic templates or papers. (Why I don’t sell acrylic templates.)

  1. Hello Linda,

    This is quite a new collection. So many choices for color combinations. This will make many of us rush to our stash for sure. Or maybe rush to the quilt store to buy new fabrics (great!). My favorite part of quilting.

    Thank you for this new collection.
