When you discover the benefits of Inklingo as a quilting tool, we know you'll be back.

When you print the shapes on fabric with Inklingo:

  • It simplifies the cutting
  • It simplifies the sewing.
  • It allows you to cut with scissors, or cut several layers at a time with a rotary cutter.
  • It allows you to make simple or complex designs more easily.

2. WHAT FABRIC CAN I USE?

Almost any cotton quilting fabric is suitable for Inklingo. When it is ironed to freezer paper, it goes through a printer safely, just like paper.

Any ordinary Inkjet printer allows you to print “custom page sizes” to minimize waste, so Inklingo uses fabric very efficiently. In some cases, “combo layouts” allow you to use less fabric than with traditional methods.

3. WILL THE INK SHOW?

There is a simple test page with all 20 Inklingo ink colors, so you can test to be sure that the ink in your printer will wash out, and that a color does not show through the front.

4. WHAT CAN I MAKE?

There are so many choices that it can be hard to decide!

Report your results on the blog or in the Inklingo Yahoo group and be eligible for a monthly draw for a $25 Gift Certificate.

My pattern book for The Patchwork of the Crosses was prepared with the gracious assistance of Diana Boston (Lucy Boston's daughter-in-law), and is illustrated with photographs by Julia Hedgecoe. Why quilters love Inklingo for POTC.

Quilted Diamonds

I often recommend that quilters start hand piecing with Quilted Diamonds 2 (the second book) because it is so easy to learn from the demonstrations on the DVD. For a pattern for a replica quilt, please see the Inklingo pages.

Jane Austen

Inklingo’s precise lines for stitching and cutting—perfectly printed on the fabric by the hundreds—make it easier than they could have imagined in the early 1800s. Quilters love having matching marks and stitching lines on every piece, so they can hand piece when they are on the go, and machine piece when they need speed. No expensive cutting machines required—and there are stitching lines and matching marks printed on every shape.
