When you print the shapes on fabric, you can rotary cut several layers at a time to start sewing sooner and finish sewing faster than with any other method.
As promised, today you can download worksheets for Texas Star variations AND a new EQ project file.
DESIGNS WITH STAR POINTS
TEXAS STAR VARIATIONS
Cathi made her Texas Star Variation in 2006 with shapes on the Inklingo #1 CD. That shape collection sold out years ago. New shape collections are all downloadable now.
To make Cathi’s design, you need a small hexagon (and both halves), a large hexagon (and half), and a star point (and half).
Inklingo gives you a choice of three sizes.
- Inklingo Shape Collection # 3 (book & CD, requires Windows)
includes 60° Hexagon 0.75 inch, 1.5 inch, and Star Point 0.75⁄1.5 inch and many other shapes (while supplies last)
If you don’t have the large hexagon, you can use small hexagons to make larger pieced hexagons for a lovely variation.
PDF WORKSHEETS TO DOWNLOAD
The worksheets include a variation using Star Points and 60° Hexagons 1 inch without the 2 inch Hexagons.

The worksheets can be fun to color, but Electric Quilt makes planning a quilt easier and faster.

IMPORTANT The info on the EQ notecards is essential to get the sizes to match with Inklingo.
Please see the tips for using Inklingo shapes with EQ under the EQ tab on the blog.

There are more notes on the blog to help you design with Star Points, ìncluding counting the shapes, and deciding how much fabric you need. Good stuff! And the blog is searchable.
