Setting blocks

Remember the Inklingo Sampler blog?
It started out with lots of 5 and 6" blocks, with a few blocks that were larger than 6". Now, with the arrival of the brand new Inklingo 12" Hunter's Star collection, and the trapezoid shape found there, you can set a number of differenet block-sizes, both on point and on straight, and still have a uniform expression to the quilt.

... it also has the added bonus, that even a quite small number of smallish blocks, can become a big quilt with a fairly small effort.

I'll try to show you some options over the next two posts. And yes, I'm splitting it up into multiple posts, because if I didn't, this would be one, monster-post.

To whet your interest, here is a picture of some blocks using the settings I'll try to make a write-up for in the next couple of days.


P.S. And if you want to make sure you don't miss the write-ups, you can follow this blog, either by 'following' or subscribing by e-mail, links to both in the right-hand column.

You have been missed.
