Clamshells are HOT! Monkey and I couldn’t resist preparing a shape collection for sashing.
If you like Clamshells, you will love this.
I don’t know anyone who would tackle this without Inklingo nowadays, but a very famous set of Clamshell bed hangings with sashing was made in about 1730. It is in the collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. Search for item number 242-1908 on the V & A web site. You can also see it in Kaffe Fassett’s Museum Quilts (2005) on pages 44-49.
The effect of the curves is lovely, and it is a very unusual design.
It even presses well.
This is definitely one that will impress your friends, especially if they don’t know about Inklingo yet.
NEW TO INKLINGO?
Inklingo really is the quilting tool we’ve always wanted.
We have more plans for Clamshells, but this should keep you busy for a little while!
Linda & Monkey
