Inklingo is all about making quilting more accessible. That means making it easier for beginners and also keeping experienced quilters inspired.

With that in mind, Inklingo has a totally new approach to Feathered Star.

Feathered Star Video  

You might be surprised that making a Feathered Star can be condensed into an 80 second video. That's seconds, not minutes.

The printing, cutting, sewing and pressing whiz past very quickly in the video, but don't worry! The Inklingo Feathered Star Design Book includes detailed instructions for designing, sewing, and pressing your Feathered Star Quilt and it is free when you buy the shapes to print on fabric ($20 value).

Feathered Star is just one of many designs requested by Inklingo quilters. They recognize that having the cutting lines, stitching lines, matching marks, and crosshairs printed on the fabric is the simplest and best way to make any design, no matter how complicated it might be with traditional methods.

BONUS TIP

If you have Electric Quilt software, "Radiant Star" is in the block library!

Use Electric Quilt to play with fabric swatches and quilt layouts and then print the shapes on fabric with Inklingo! There are several free EQ project files on the All About Inklingo blog.
