Why Quilters Love Inklingo for Dresden Plate and Fan Quilts
1. Choice of Methods
There is an Inklingo shape collection for you whether you prefer appliqué or piecing, machine or hand.
If you piece the blades, you can appliqué them to a background (printed or unprinted) or piece them into backgrounds printed with the perfect curves and matching marks. Think about it—no worries about centering the plate!! Wow!
You can also mix and match, combining foundation piecing and appliqué. For example, if you like a blade in Basic Pieced, you can appliqué the plate to an unprinted background instead of piecing. The options are endless.
2. Choice of Blades
8, 12, 16, or 24 blades in a plate!
See the variety of widths and shapes in each collection by clicking on the covers (above).
3. Choice of Block Sizes
9 or 10 inches in Appliqué
9 inches in Basic Pieced
9, 12, or 15 inches in Fancy Pieced
4. Choice of FIVE Back-basting Layouts
The back-basting layouts in Appliqué allow you to combine narrow and wide blades and different blades in the same block!
5. Simple to Decide How Much Fabric
The diagrams for each shape and Monkey's Cheat Sheet keep you organized and make it easy to decide how much fabric to buy—or whether you have enough in your stash.
6. Easy to Cut
Use scissors or a rotary cutter. No measuring, no templates! No expensive tools required and there are perfect stitching lines and matching marks on every piece!
7. The Inklingo Dresden Plate Design Book
This PDF (74 pages) includes everything you need to know to design and sew your Dresden Plate.
8. Buy exactly what you need or Have It All
You can buy the shapes for your favorite method and have exactly what you need.
If you order the Appliqué collection and the Fancy Pieced collection, you will have it all! (Everything in the Basic Pieced collection is included in the Fancy Pieced Collection.)
IMPORTANT If you are new to Inklingo, I recommend starting with the FREE Diamond Triangle Square shape collection.
It includes the first chapter of The Inklingo Handbook. With that and the Top Ten Tutes on the blog, you will be an expert in no time!
