Storm At Sea Quilt Templates for Islands in the Stream

Happy New Year!

An Islands in the Stream design is just one of a gazillion options for using Inklingo Storm At Sea quilt templates in 2022.

A Perfect Duet

Dolly and Kenny
You and Inklingo

Islands in the Stream

Islands in the Stream could be the perfect duet between you and Inklingo to start the new year. As the song says, This could be the year for the real thing.

Dolly doesn’t seem to take things too seriously and seems to love to poke fun at herself, but as she says, everything on the inside is real and that’s what is important.

She’s been married to the same man for 55 years (since 1966) and have you heard of her Imagination Library for kids? Fabulous, inspired by her father, who was illiterate. That’s serious stuff, full of love, just like the quilts you make.

Making Music, Making Quilts

I found the words for today’s blog article in the lyrics of Islands in the Stream. Dolly and Kenny say we got something going on:

How can we be wrong?
Sail away with me
To another world

This could be the year for the real thing

We start and end as one

Sail away with me
To another world

(Last time I wrote about Storm At Sea templates, Eddie Rabbitt sang “I love a raining night.” That was good too.)

No more will you cry.

That won’t happen to us and we got no doubt. Inklingo matching marks and precision corners ensure that you will start and end as one—without tears.

How can we be wrong? Inklingo precision corners and matching marks make everything right.

Inklingo Highlights of 2021

Looking back, there are at least 3 Inklingo highlights of 2021: my new Winding Ways hardcover book, taking Inklingo to The Quilt Show with Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims, and . . . 

Linda Franz 2021

. . . being one of the Pearls of Wisdom in the Electric Quilt 30 year celebrations.

Now Showing The Quilt Show with Alex and Ricky

The good news is that all of the good things from 2021 carry over to 2022. The Inklingo episode of The Quilt Show (#2911) is now part of their permanent library of shows.

We hope all the bad things from 2021 will fade away.

Winding Ways by Linda Franz

Winding Ways for Storm At Sea Quilt Templates? Yes

All of the info in Winding Ways – Quilting the Inklingo Way applies to Storm At Sea quilt templates too. If you like the idea of an Islands in the Stream design, or are ready to design a new one with Electric Quilt (or Inklingo worksheets), then Winding Ways shows you how to determine fabric requirements and break it down into manageable pieces. This book has everything!

If you have Winding Ways – Quilting the Inklingo Way, you have everything you need in one book. It could be the one book you take to a desert island—with your printer and your fabric stash, of course.

Storm At Sea in Comfy Clothes

We can all be like Dolly Parton, who understands the excitement of a new book for inspiration and messages of confidence. No stiletto heels, no Spanx, no wigs, no makeup or plastic surgery required. Just your ideas, fabric and Inklingo, okay?

There is a whole stream of inspiration on Pinterest and other blogs too. Search for Ocean Waves and Storm At Sea images.
