There’s a new Inklingo shape collection to tempt you!
The “New York Wheel” shape collection was “almost finished” last year, so it was relatively easy to finish it while Russ and I had the flu.
WHAT IS A NEW YORK WHEEL?
Wheel is an old design and New York Beauty is a modern classic. I haven’t heard of NY Wheel before.
We christened this one New York Wheel because these shapes are interchangeable with the shapes in the first 3 New York Beauty shape collections. We have some surprising examples, so stay tuned to the blog, okay?
HOW MANY VARIATIONS AND PERMUTATIONS?
Monkey sat on the calculator for a while.
In Monkey’s mind, if you have all four Inklingo New York shape collections, you can make approximately 100 – 10,000 variations. Good to know.
He says you are going to love using these shapes. No math. No measuring. No templates!
A CHOICE OF LAYOUTS TO PRINT ON FABRIC
This Inklingo shape collection (PDF) has hundreds of pages to print on fabric with all of the different shapes. You just have to find the page you want, and print!
Fabric feeds just like ordinary paper when it is stabilized with freezer paper.
Combo 1 has all the shapes for one New York Wheel. This sheet is 7.5 x 13 inches.
There are 4 different Combo layouts in this shape collection. Combo layouts save fabric and time.
Of course, you can print the shapes separately too. This sheet is 5.25 x 12.25. Custom Page Sizes let us use the fabric very efficiently!
We cut the shapes apart with a rotary cutter.
There are speed tips for rotary cutting in the Sunflower Quilt Design Book and it’s free with this shape collection!
- how to cut several layers at a time
- how to rotary cut curves—easy and speedy!
When portability is more important than speed, we cut with scissors. Just cut on the lines!
Inklingo lets us cut the way we want to.
See how fine and perfect the lines are? These are fun to sew!
Every shape has stitching lines and matching marks to make the pinning and sewing easy—whether by machine or by hand.
DO YOU LIKE A GOOD MYSTERY?
We hope you do! We’ve designed a Mystery Quilt with New York Wheel.
Next week Monkey and I will give you the first clue for a mystery quilt which uses this shape collection.
The Mystery Quilt is not necessarily a beginner quilt because the blocks are only 6 inches, but it is a great way to learn about Inklingo.
Stay tuned for details, okay?
