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.
Only the quilters who entered the contest will have access to the Electric Quilt project files for the Top 25—a great prize!—but all of them will be featured on the blog.
There are descriptions from each designer in the EQ project notecards, but these tips will give you an idea of the creativity of these Inklingo designers!
The quilts were chosen for the Top 25 by the judge, Barb Vlack, EQ author and teacher. Thank you, Barb! Congratulations to everyone who entered!

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 Double Wedding Ring, Feathered Star, or any other.
I have given you links to some of the pages on the blog and the website, but there are many more. Luckily, the blog is searchable (box above the header), so you can follow your interests!
Looking for more of the winners? We featured the Grand Prize winner and others HERE, and we’ll be back with more of the Top 25 soon, so stay tuned.
Thank you for visiting!
