MORE  PIECED HEXAGONS

In my last message, I showed you some of the pieced hexagons which can be made with the 4 shapes in the new 1.5 inch Inklingo Diamond shape collection.

This time, we’ve stepped it up a notch and added the shapes from the 1.5 inch Hexagon shape collection.

 

Inklingo PIeced Hexagons

Isn’t it incredible? Simple shapes, Inklingo, unlimited imagination.

 

Inklingo Diamonds and Hexagons to print on fabric

As you can see, the pieced hexagon has 3 inch sides (finished) and is 6 inches across from point to point.

How big is that?

 

3 inch hexagons are 6 inches from point to point

It might be bigger than you think. The pieced hexagons are about the same size as a large soup saucer. (When 6 diamonds are added to the purple star, it will be bigger than the saucer.)

 

Even more Inklingo pieced Hexagons

We had a ball designing these, but we’ve barely scratched the surface. When you reverse the light and dark and swap shapes in and out, it gets even more exciting!

HAND PIECING? MACHINE PIECING?

—OR BOTH!

When you buy Inklingo hexagons to print on fabric, you also receive the Inklingo Hexagon Quilt Design Book (PDF download, $20 value). (There are three ways to get it free. We’re so flexible it’s confusing!)

The design book includes everything you need to know about hexagons PLUS instructions for hand piecing, for machine piecing, and for “hybrid” piecing.

There is also a new Inklingo movie on YouTube with all of my best tips for machine piecing inset seams.

Inklingo makes machine piecing inset seams a breeze!

 

Print Inklingo hexagons with your Inkjet

Print a variety of shapes on several fabrics and start playing!

The hardest part is deciding what size you want. They are all listed in the Index of Shapes under the Support & Goodies tab on inklingo.com and also on these pages:

CD or DOWNLOAD?

As usual, the new downloadable shape collection is at a very special intro price for a limited time.

Be sure to consider the Inklingo # 3 CD before you decide.

 

Inklingo # 3 book & CD   Book and CD — 30 shapes and sizes + the book!

We still expect most quilters to prefer the book and CD because it is such an incredible value.

The downloads are perfect for quilters who want instant access (no shipping cost) and who have Mac without Windows. (The #3 CD requires Windows.)

Eventually the world will make all CDs obsolete (remember VHS tapes and floppy disks?) but downloads can be updated and kept alive.

  1. I love this. I have CD 3 but what I didn’t have was all these great designs you’re showing on this page. How inspiring. I’m trying to stay focused but this is just like candy!!

  2. Nancy Elberfeld says:

    WOW!!!

  3. Linda says:

    The mind boggles!!

  4. Cathi says:

    You are tempting me to jump on the Candied Hexagons bandwagon with all these layouts! What fun could be had with all these fun layouts! I have a feeling trying to resist this is going to be futile!

  5. Donna Lucas says:

    Well, no need for a drink on this Saturday nite!
    You have given me the shakes thinking of these combinations with my other candies.
    I have to go lay down now.

  7. Wendy says:

    All I can say is “Wow”, I need to have these printed in a book so I can go over them again and again! They look almost like some of the patterns that are in the “Toes in the Sand” quilt…and I love it!!! By the way, Monkey looks like he’s had his cheek pinched a few times in the photo, he is just so darn cute! I see another project in my future!

  8. Sandhya Karandikar says:

    This is very inspiring. I have always been a little scared to do hexagons but with this I think my fears have become a lot less. The variations you have are amazing. The monkey is real cute and so is the cup and saucer.

  9. Sandhya Karandikar says:

    Forgot to mention that Bonnie hunter send me here otherwise I would have never known about this.

  10. Fern says:

    I can’t wait for my CD3 to arrive. This is so inspirational! Thank you.

  11. Diane G. says:

    Well, Tammy, you can’t shake and sew at the same time. You have a way of getting me to shake with laughter. Love it! Hugs, Linda & Monkey
