|Sixteen Patch Scrap Quilt 64" x 64"|
In the example above, the quilt would be 64" x 64". Perhaps I would have a more useful quilt if it were a bit longer. The example below is 65" x 72".

I'm hand piecing using 2 inch squares from Inklingo . If you follow this link and click on Cathi's PDF Version of the Index of Shapes (Thank you Cathi!) It lists all the collections with 2 inch squares. I count 8 collections. I have several. The One inch 90 Degree Hexagon Collection (Patchwork of the Crosses) has this 2 inch square. I could use this one. One of the things I love so much about Inklingo is that if you have a shape collection, you can use that collection to make so many other quilts. (Thank you Linda!)
This quilt could also be made as a little wall hanging or table topper. If you made your squares 1 inch x 1 inch, the quilt would be about 32" x 32". What fun that would be! Take a look at Cathi's List for all the collections that have a 1 Inch square. I count 7 collections.
As I start this project, which will be my go to in between other projects, I'll post more about my progress. I expect this to take some time because I'll be hand piecing the quilt and eventually hand quilting it. For all those who prefer and can get accuracy with machine piecing, this will take a lot less time. Inklingo is also very useful for machine piecers. I can see you all whipping through this, string piecing it, and making short work of it.
