My addiction to Inlingo continues. When I printed the my first set of hexagon shapes, I thought I might just stitch a few together and make a small project like a table runner. Well, my pile of hexies has magically grown and I think a full sized quilt is in the making! I can’t seem to stop making them!
If you have been reading my blog, you know that I made a Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt last year. I bought some paper hexagon shapes and away I went! You can read about that here. I basted the fabric onto the paper templates and then whip-stitched the pieces together. I even tried glueing the seam allowance in place but found it very messy and the paper templates popped out before they were stitched together and that irritated me.
So, having done both methods of hexagons (English Paper Piecing and Inklingo) I must say I prefer Inklingo. Why? It is just so efficient and so easy…no paper templates to buy or cut, no basting or glueing seam allowances and no taking the basting threads out. Just simply print…
…and stitch. Easy Peasy!!
I am linking up to Slow Stitching Sunday. Check it out and see what other quilters are doing on this cold, wintery day!
Til next time…

Don’t you love it when you really enjoy making blocks so much that you just want to keep going, not keeping count, and not worrying about the end goal… just living in the fun of blockmaking?!?!
I could not have said it better myself! 🙂 I am delighted that you are enjoying your Inklingo hexies, Kerry! I’ll be linking to you from Facebook and from the Inklingo Yahoo Group. You quilt is going to be stunning.
What a pretty pile of blocks–I have to give this method a try!
I do remember your quilt from last year and how fast this method looks 🙂
Your hexagons are so pretty. I love the way the light pink offset all the other flowers.
I love hand piecing my hexagon flowers this way!
Look at that gorgeous pile of stitching! I can see why you’re addicted.:)
