Helen in Australia sent me some lovely photos of her first Inklingo stars!
Helen wrote: “I have had a lovely day putting the tote together.”
She used the free pattern for Tilde’s Tiny Totes.
“It really was a pleasure to make – and I love the printed sewing lines.”
Thanks to Tilde in Copenhagen, this is a free and easy way to get started. You can make stars like this with her free pattern and the FREE Diamond Triangle Square shape collection.
In fact, if you are new to Inklingo, I recommend ordering and downloading the free shapes first.
Why not? It is fun to try something new and you get the first chapter of The Inklingo Handbook as a bonus.
Print the combo layout on green fabric . . .
. . . and print a second scrap, and mix and match the shapes for two LeMoyne Stars like Helen’s. That’s all you need for your first tote!
I hope Helen’s first project will inspire you.
If you would like to inspire and encourage other quilters to print with Inklingo, please email a photo of your Inklingo quilt (or quilt in progress) to Cathi in Toronto for the Inklingo Projects Blog. You can write a short description, including the Inklingo shape collection you used to make it. Cathi will even link to your blog or website!
If you are looking for inspiration, the Inklingo Projects Blog is a great resource. Take a lunch. You might be there a while. LOL
There is more inspiration coming tomorrow too!
Monkey and I made a new friend recently.
Brandy Lynn is the host of Canadian Quilt Talk.
We had a fun talk about Inklingo and the podcast will be available on Brandy Lynn’s Explore Fibre Blog tomorrow. I hope you will come back to listen. I think you will also enjoy Brandy Lynn’s weekly videos.
You don’t have to be Canadian to listen to Canadian Quilt Talk. We spell fiber “fibre” in Canada but don’t worry about that. It still sounds the same and quilters have lots in common no matter where we live, eh? (I hope I did not say “about” when I was talking to Brandy Lynn. Some people think we say it funny up here in the frozen north. And we really are frozen this year.)
If you don’t want to miss anything, you can subscribe to receive an email from All About Inklingo when there is anything new (top of right sidebar).
Thank you for visiting, and thank you to Helen for permission to show this lovely tote. Doesn’t it make you want to print and sew?
See you tomorrow? I hope so!
Linda & Monkey
