I have discovered the addictive (very addictive!) world of Hand-Piecing! A couple of weeks ago, I decided to start another hexie quilt. I needed a little inspiration so I found myself on Pinterest admiring the hundreds and hundreds of hexie quilt images. Long story short, I clicked on a hexie quilt that was made using Inklingo. I had heard of Inklingo a couple of years ago, even spent some time on the website, but that is all that became of it. This time when I checked out the website, I could see the beauty of the Inklingo concept. First I downloaded the free pattern for the diamond stars, fired up my ink-jet printer, watched a few Inklingo videos on Youtube, threaded up a needle and BAM!! Before I knew it, I had completed four stars!!
So, then I thought “If I can hand-piece these stars, I can hand-piece anything, including hexies!” I purchased the 2″ hexie patterns and the rest is history! So this is what I have been working on today….I am linking up to Kathy’s Slow Stitching Sunday. Check it out and see what quilters are working on today!
Pressing these hexies are easy when you know how!
Til next time….

Your stars and hexies look great! I have just start hand piecing and it is very relaxing and less stressful on my hands than epp.
Love your little stars! I do enjoy hand piecing but have’t done it for ages. I also downloaded the free ink lingo, but I’m kind of confused on how to use it–maybe I need to figure it out so I can make some cute stars too!
Welcome to the dark side Kerry!! Gorgeous blocks.
A friend just told me about your blog, Kerry! Thank you for sharing the photos. You are doing lovely work. Isn’t it fun to photograph blocks From the Back? 🙂 Irresistible!
I’ve heard great things about Inklingo! Love your little stars and the hexies are wonderful too! I’ve only done a little hand piecing, but I find it very relaxing.:)
