MAKE 100 CHEVRONS BY PRINTING 2 SHEETS OF FABRIC
Intriguing? How appropriate for a mystery!
Welcome to a world of intrigue, where 2 sheets of printed parallelograms are all you need to make 100 chevron units.
It’s like magic!
This short video took 3 days longer to edit than I planned!
Have you heard the quote: “If I Had More Time, I Would Have Written a Shorter Letter”? That’s how I felt about this video.
I had too much footage, too many photos, and even more ideas. The hard part was keeping it short.
I want to tell you so much about Inklingo that sometimes it is hard to stop.
Monkey finally gave me a stern look and said “Enough already.” I listened to the monkey. It’s done.
TOP 6 REASONS TO MAKE CHEVRONS WITH INKLINGO!
- Straight grain in all the right places
This is important when it comes to assembling the quilt top. The last thing you want is bias edges on your blocks!
- Minimal waste
The layouts allow you to make very efficient use of scraps and two-inch strips.
- Satisfying results
When you sew stretchy bias seams before they are cut it is easy to get perfect blocks without distortion. Bias is not your friend when you are piecing! (Love it for appliqué!)
- Simpler and faster
There is no need to draw lines on fabric or use any special seam guide. Quilters who print on fabric have a huge advantage.
- Minimal printing
I am printing more than the minimum for my quilt because it is so fast and easy, but it is not necessary to print small scraps and dark fabrics at all!
For Bonnie’s mystery, $20 gets you all the shapes for all of the clues. No weird rulers or other tools required.
