There is LOT of good stuff online now for Inklingo quilters—including the kitchen sink!
Did you miss me?
I’ve been distracted by house renovations (indoors and outdoors) for a few weeks but Inklingo quilters have been printing and sewing and spreading the word! Thank you!
My very favorite new thing is the kitchen sink! I smile every time I walk into the kitchen. It is so easy to keep clean and it LOOKS clean!
It reminds me of my Mum’s big white kitchen sink, where my sisters and I had our baths when we were little.
The sink is the best decision we’ve made. Russ (the cook) likes it too.
While I’ve been distracted by workers and decisions about floors and appliances, you have been busy quilting and telling your friends about Inklingo! You are the best!
Now that the indoor work is finished, I feel energized about blogging again and have a whole list of things I want to share with you.
WELCOME TO INKLINGO
There are step by step instructions and a new VIDEO on the Welcome to Inklingo page on the website.
There is so much available on inklingo.com and this blog that I’d like to show you around.
I hope you will enjoy this series whether you are one of thousands of newbies or you have been using Inklingo for ten years already.
I have no idea how many parts there will be in this series yet.
WHAT SHAPES ARE AVAILABLE?
Newbies often ask me whether this or that shape or size is available. I am happy to help and always answer emails as quickly as possible. However, there are also some good online resources.
The Index of Shapes is under the Support & Goodies tab on the website. (You are on the blog now.)
When you click on the green text in the Index, it takes you to a complete description with illustrations.
Some shapes are available in more than one shape collection. For example, there are 1 inch squares in Storm At Sea 6 inch, POTC 1 inch, Log Cabin 1 inch, Sunflower 12 inch, and Rose Dream 6 inch. Many quilters choose the Storm At Sea shape collection because the other shapes are very versatile AND you get the Storm At Sea Design Book too.
I respond to requests for new shapes too.
MONKEY’S BONUS TIPS
- All Inklingo shapes are named with the finished size to make it easy. No arithmetic!
- Absolute precision without measuring. No trimming up afterwards!
- All Inklingo shapes are provided with and without seam allowances.
- The layouts of shapes make efficient use of the fabric with correct straight grain.
- When it makes sense, I add “combo” layouts to save fabric and save time. (Of course, there are other layouts so you can print the shapes separately too.)
- Bonus shapes are included in some shape collections to increase the design options.
- Design Books are provided free with some shape collections. (More about how to get Design Books for FREE.)
Your enthusiasm for printing on fabric means many more quilters download their first Inklingo shape collection every day. No wonder other quilters want to make what you’re making!
