Inklingo Quilting

Mug Rug Swap Finished!

IMG_4367I just realized that I never posted the photo of the completed rug! Looking at this awful phone photo, a few thoughts come to mind:

  • The binding looks terrible. I hand-sewed it on and it is so wrinkled!
  • I didn’t sew the patches using a scant quarter-inch and on the smaller patches, I should have gone further out. The block size was smaller and the whole rug much less than straight.
  • My quilting doesn’t look particularly good. Perhaps I needed to stabilize it in a frame after all.



Long overdue update!

I’m in the middle of quilting my applecore baby quilt and it is coming along nicely. I decided to echo quilt in one direction which is great because I don’t have to mark it!
Hopefully, I’ll be done with the quilting in the next couple of weeks and onto the task of binding!

Inklingo Quilting

Playing with EQ7

So I finally sat down to have a play with EQ7 and some Inklingo shapes. I received a newsletter from Accuquilt (part of my initial research into better template-makers before I found Inklingo) a while ago with this quilt featured:

I saw it and thought the design was interesting and probably Inklingo-able. So I opened up EQ7 to redraw the quilt (and change the colors to something that suited me better) and while calculating all the shapes, I discovered that this is a variation on the 9″ Storm at Sea!


And then there was this cute pattern in another newsletter from Fat Quarter Shop:


I halved the size to see if it could be completely Inklingo-able, but there are some shapes that aren’t for sale.


I recoloured it and I’m calling it Rainbow Crayons.

Then I went back to the Inklingo site for the Drunkard’s Path EQ file and played with the block. I call this Colour Tabs.
