I’m very excited to join over 250 bloggers from 20 countries in the Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways. Thank you Michele for hosting it. Be sure to check out all the other great blog participants and enter their give-aways before this party ends on December 17.
With the special permission of Linda Franz and Inklingo, I’m thrilled to be able to give away fabric with Inklingo templates printed on them. This kit includes nearly 100 HSTs that finish at 3/4 of an inch (yup, you read that correctly, less than an inch); 10 HSTs that finish at 3 inches; 4 squares that finish at 1-1/2 inches; and a coordinating fat quarter (same fabric as the squares) that could be used for other shapes, borders and/or binding. I wish the picture quality was better, but it does give you an idea of the colors. The green print in the lower left quite a bit lighter.
Here’s a sample of the 3-inch HST, one each of the 3/4-inch HSTs, and a 1-1/2 inch square:I chose these, especially the teeny HSTs, because I wanted shapes that would normally be challenging to piece accurately using other methods. This is a great opportunity to find out why many of us are addicted to the ease and accuracy of Inklingo templates. Their cutting lines, stitching lines, and matching marks allow even an inexperienced quilter the ability to make what are usually considered very challenging quilt blocks. Whether you stitch by machine or hand, I believe you’ll enjoy piecing these.
What can you make with these shapes? A Tiny Triangle Table Topper is one choice. A FREE pdf of this pattern can be downloaded from AllPeopleQuilt.com. The pattern is ‘inspired by “Vintage Voyage” from designer Ann Hermes.’ Or let your creative juices flow and design something else!
Here’s a video Linda Franz made in 2006 on how to sew HSTs the Inklingo way:

To enter my give-away, leave a reply. In your comment let me know whether you have or have not used Inklingo templates. I’ll randomly choose the winner at the end of the day on the 17th.
