QUILTMAKER and Inklingo Periwinkle Quilt – Lesson Part 2

This is a big day for two blogs!

Quiltmaker MayJune 2013


Today Quilty Pleasures, the blog for Quiltmaker Magazine, features an article I wrote about Inklingo!

See it here.

I was thrilled when Diane Harris, the Interactive Editor, invited me to write about Inklingo. She is an Inklingoist too.

Thank you, Diane! It is a great opportunity for more quilters to hear about Inklingo.

The timing is great because the current issue of Quiltmaker is all about hexagons, and we just happen to be doing a beginner lesson on the All About Inklingo blog too.

INKLINGO Periwinkle Quilt Lesson  IPQ Part 2


We’re calling our IPQ a “reverse mystery.”

It’s a lesson for the new Periwinkle Octagon shape collection and it is perfect for Inklingo beginners.

The Inklingo Periwinkle Quilt Part 2
Free PDF (11 pages, 6.3 MB)
The page numbers start at 7 because Part 1 ended with page 6.

This time, it’s all about choosing fabric and starting to print.


Inklingo Periwinkle Quilt


As usual, the new Periwinkle shapes are at a very special intro price—but for a limited time only!


Inklingo Hexagon Quilt Design Book Hexagon Quilt Design Book is a bonus.


Designing and sewing with octagons is similar to designing and sewing with hexagons, so when you buy this new shape collection I will add the Hexagon Quilt Design Book (70 pages, PDF), a $20 value!

Part 1 of the IPQ “reverse mystery” explained the basics of Inklingo.

Inklingo Periwinkle Quilt  IPQ Blog Badge

Spreading the Word!

  1. You can use the badge on your blog, if you like (right sidebar).
  2. If you are an experienced Inklingoist please leave a comment on the Quilty Pleasures blog today, so other quilters will be inspired to start inklingoing too. Let’s thank Diane and the magazine for educating quilters about Inklingo.
  3. If you know quilters who are looking for an introduction to Inklingo, please let them know about the IPQ lesson. Even if they aren’t sewing the quilt, the free PDFs are full of good info and prove that you don’t have to be a computer nerd to print on fabric!

Thank you for visiting both blogs, and thank you, Diane!

There are more big days to come. Come on back for Part 3, okay?
