COTDN Clue # 2 (8 pages, PDF to download)
I’m wearing my diamond necklace ($7.50 US and worth every penny) with a sweatshirt instead of a strapless white gown while I print and sew.
You can feel just like Grace Kelly in To Catch A Thief while you make a pretty quilt.
If you are new to Inklingo, Clue # 2 will help you print your first 3 sheets of fabric and start sewing stars by hand or by machine.
This clue includes valuable gems of information in videos of “circling the intersection” and “continuous stitching.”
You will need the shapes in the Inklingo 60° Diamond 1.75 inch Shape Collection.
The versatility of these shapes makes them perfect for a mysterious mystery quilt.
The new COTDN mystery quilt is very pretty with or without fussy cutting.
Even if you won’t be fussy cutting this time, we think the new notes about fussy cutting with Inklingo are a very good reason to subscribe to the blog (top of right side-bar)..
This VIDEO on the Welcome to Inklingo page on the website includes essential clues.
If you know anyone who is interested in learning about Inklingo, please let them know. The COTDN mystery is great for beginners AND experienced Inklingo quilters.

1 thought on “The Case of the Diamond Necklace Mystery Quilt – Clue # 2”
Downloaded clue 2, thanks so much! I haven’t had much quilting time today (insert sad face here). But after reading clue 2, it’s about time I mastered inklingo fussycutting, and I don’t think six stars will take that long at all, so maybe I will do this before working on my next La Pass rosette. After all, this mystery will make a 24 x 28 wallhanging, so it offers lots of learning (and fun) in a relatively quick project.
Wish me more quilting time tomorrow, and if our wishes come true, I will be fussycutting tomorrow.
