Can you imagine if you were still using your scissors and cardboard templates to make your quilts and someone tried to explain to you, by blog, how easy and simple it was to use a rotary cutter and mat?!?!?
You'd probably STILL be sitting on the fence, with your scissors and collection of cereal box cardboard templates, wondering what the fuss was all about!!!
In my week's effort to show and share how much fun and how EASY Inklingo can be - how VALUABLE a tool this can be, to make incredibly complicated looking quilts - which are truly very easy to make..... today I've taken the liberty of copying Linda Franz's Inklingo FAQ's, for you.
Any ordinary Inkjet printer — like yours! Print shapes on the wrong side of the fabric with the Inkjet printer and color ink cartridge you have already. Fabric feeds smoothly through an Inkjet printer when it is ironed to freezer paper. It prints just like paper.
Any ordinary color Inkjet printer will allow you to print custom sizes to use fabric efficiently.
DO I HAVE TO LEARN NEW SOFTWARE?
No! Pages of Inklingo shapes are organized in PDF files which open with Adobe Reader. There is no software to install. Just enter the page number (or use the bookmark feature) to print the page with
the shape and ink color you need. It’s simple but you will want to read our tips too.
There are 20 Inklingo colors which are designed to wash out — but even if they don’t, they do not show in the finished quilt. It is simple to choose the page with the best color of ink.
IS THIS JUST FOR HAND PIECING?
No! Sew by machine or sew by hand with a running stitch, or combine hand and machine stitching for a “hybrid.” Inklingo introduces new, simpler ways to stitch. There are instructions for piecing and appliqué on the web site and in the Inklingo Handbook.
CAN A BEGINNER DO THIS?
Yes! Inklingo is perfect for beginning quilters and for children too. Cut with a rotary cutter or scissors. No measuring! Just cut and sew along the lines. There is straight grain on every piece. Inklingo makes it easier than ever to start quilting.
What am I doing today?
Heading off the the fish market to pick up a few lobster and then, heading off to visit my parents and have a lobster feast - my treat!
Wishing you all a
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!!
Wee Small Hours in Beijing!
