I am finding the Inklingo 3″ Deluxe Winding Ways blocks absolutely irresistible.
So much so I had to make a couple with these little floral and soft green fabrics. This is one of the variations in the Deluxe collection – the centre, dividing pieces are just a bit larger. The camera doesn’t seem to like these fabrics as this looks much prettier in person than it does in the photo! There will be a few more made with these fabrics and they’re going to be, I think, turned into a special mug rug for someone. I think that all the pictures can now be seen in a larger size by just clicking on them. At least I hope they can.
Then a classic red and white. Even though the blocks are tiny, I am very tempted to make this a lap quilt — just because I love the look of quilts made with tiny blocks and it would be another two-colour quilt.
I’m now grading the seams as I sew these little gems. It really does make a big difference when pressing and is, I think, worth the few seconds it takes.
And, of course, lots more of the French General blocks. I think this one will end up about a 27″ or 30″ square wallhanging. I’m in the process of organizing the pieces for these three into one project box.
Now there’s news that there will be a 12″ Inklingo Winding Ways collection! That has me thinking about fabrics that would work for the larger block. One of the things that making all the masks I’ve made over the past year has done is give me confidence in my ability to do some curved piecing by machine so I am gong to attempt to sew a 12″ Winding Ways block by machine or at least part of it by machine. I’m actually rather looking forward to trying.
Baxter has a new favourite spot. Sometimes it seems as though as soon as the chair is empty, he takes over. I took photo this at night with my phone so it’s not as clear as it could be, but the look on his face made me laugh.
