MORE PIECED HEXAGONS
This time, we’ve stepped it up a notch and added the shapes from the 1.5 inch Hexagon shape collection.
Isn’t it incredible? Simple shapes, Inklingo, unlimited imagination.
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?
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.)
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?
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 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:
- Main Hexagon Page
- Main Diamond Page
- Smart Shopper’s Idea Book (especially pages 13 – 14 for Candied Hexagons)
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.
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.
