Erin made a great suggestion in a comment about the new Inklingo Shape Collection for Yin Yang yesterday.
We listened. You can download the new file here.
The file also includes this design with Winding Ways blocks in two Inklingo sizes, 6 inch and 9 inch (without Yin Yang). This is one of the designs in the Inklingo Winding Ways Design Book (fabulous download, $10 or free, 75 pages).
CLUB EQ MAY CHALLENGE – EQ6 or EQ7 – MAY 31
I decided my EQ examples should be Red and White to remind you about Barb Vlack’s irresistible Club EQ Challenge for May. When we first mentioned it, it seemed like a long time away, but it is already May 26! Your EQ6 or EQ7 files must be submitted by May 31. It’s time to get busy! It’s a long weekend in the USA, so there’s no excuse.
TILDE’S 15 MINUTE CHALLENGE
The Club EQ Challenge is fantastic because everyone who enters wins but don’t forget to do Tilde’s 15 Minute Challenge too! If you complete the challenge and leave a comment here or on the Inklingo Sampler blog by Monday 30 May, you will be in the draw for one of two $25 Gift Certificates.
Of course, we think that everyone who completes Tilde’s 15 Minute Challenge wins because you get great tips for printing on fabric. Experienced Inklingoists and newbies are all welcome. The challenge takes you from opening Inklingo to printing shapes on fabric in just a few minutes—maybe only 15!
MONKEY’S ASSIGNMENT FOR YOU
- Take 15 minutes to do Tilde’s Challenge by 30 May.
(Right now is a good time.)
- Download the free Yin Yang Winding Ways EQ7 file.
- Submit a Red & White quilt in EQ6 or EQ7 format to Club EQ by 31 May (Tuesday).
You can use any shapes for your Red and White Club EQ quilt, but we hope you will use Inklingoable shapes, so we have given you a head start.
There is even more inspiration on Anneke’s Stof Genoeg blog. She is a genius at designing Inklingoable quilts in Electric Quilt. Tilde has put a red and white Inklingo hexagon alphabet on the Inklingo Sampler blog too.
If you use Inklingo Shapes, it is very helpful to other Inklingoists if you include the name of the shape collection(s) you used on the the notecard (above).
Erin’s comment prompted all this. Thank you, Erin!
In Canada, we had our May long weekend last weekend. It marks the unofficial beginning of summer, but it was originally a holiday to celebrate the birthday of Queen Victoria in 1837 (and mine, more than 100 years later). Now it is America’s turn to have a Memorial Day holiday. Wherever you are, I hope you spend some time with fabric and EQ this weekend.
Will you leave a comment or suggestion for me? You never know what will happen if you do!
