More TOP 25 Contest Winners!

As promised, here are a few more of the Top 25 designs from the Electric Quilt/Inklingo Love the Lines Contest.

Judge’s Choice

The designs were chosen for the Top 25 by the judge, Barb Vlack, EQ author and teacher. Thank you, Barb! Congratulations to everyone who entered!

The challenge was to use Inklingo shapes in Electric Quilt to design quilts you can actually sew!

Everyone who entered a design in the contest will be receiving the project files for these designs! (Don’t you wish you entered too?)

Pam Matthews’ Fluttering Circles

Pam used Dresden Plate Fancy and Winding Ways shape collections to create a beautiful effect. It makes me think of a magic carpet.  This is a design most quilters would not consider making without Inklingo!

Erin Klein’s “The Color of the Sky, I’m Told”

Erin used several Inklingo shape collections very creatively and explains her design on the notecard. The fabulous border with 9 inch blocks is made with the shapes in the free Diamond/Triangle/Square shape collection. She also used Feathered Star and Circle shape collections.

Anneke de Weerdt’s Valentine for Linda & Monkey

Anneke also used Feathered Star but she designed her curvy border effect with a different free shape collection—Circle of Hearts for appliqué. Anneke also provides very helpful notes on in the sketchbook. We love her valentine!!

Elaine Stone-Arthur’s Waves of Color 

Elaine is very creative with Storm At Sea shapes. We showed another of her designs yesterday, and it did not look like a traditional Storm At Sea either. Wouldn’t you love to see this with many fabrics making up each band of color? It would be a great design for using up little scraps from your stash.

Kari Bauer’s Feathered Star Medallion 

Kari used Rose Dream, the free Diamond/Triangle/Square shapes, Feathered Star and the On-Point Triangles. She made the Feathered Star even more elaborate by designing a 9 inch block for the center, a unique feature of Inklingo.

Carol Johnson’s Dancing in the Dark

Carol also used Rose Dream but set the blocks on point to get a totally different effect. She combined blocks with graceful curves with Inklingo Triangles, including Half Square Triangles (HST) and On-Point Triangles, plus the free Circle of Hearts shape collection.

It is hard to see the individual blocks in Carol’s design, so here is the same quilt un-colored.

You CAN sew these!

These are all complicated-looking quilts which are actually do-able with the cutting and stitching lines printed on the fabric with Inklingo. Check out the links under each quilt to see how.

You can design with Inklingo shapes knowing that you can turn your dreams into fabric creations—whether it is Rose Dream, Feathered Star, Storm At Sea, or free shapes!

More Resources

In addition to the links above, the blog is searchable (box above the header), so you can find out more about the shapes you dream about.

Congratulations to everyone who entered. I am very glad I did not have to do the judging, because you made if very, very difficult.

Aren’t you glad you visited so you could see these designs?

    What lovely quilter’s eye candy!
    From what I have seen someone could stay stitching forever and not use all the shapes in Inklingo! I would be hard pressed to pick a favorite but Kari’s Feathered Medallion is lovely with the soft pastel colorations

  2. Nancy says:

    WOW! So much creativity! My favorite would have to be Pam Matthews’ Fluttering Circles for I love curves. Everyone has had such wonderful ideas and designs made so much easier with Inklingo.

    Hard to choose, but my favorite of these is Erin Klein’s design. What fun to see all the creativity using EQ7 and Inklingo!
