Why Quilters Love Inklingo Hexagons
1. Unusual & Beautiful Designs
Follow any pattern or use the time you save to create exciting settings and color combinations. The design book (free with shapes) will inspire you.
The extra half and quarter shapes are great for pieced hexagons, like Candied Hexagons or VariHex, or for finishing your quilt with a straight edge.
2. Simple to Decide How Much Fabric
There are diagrams in every shape collection which show how many shapes you can cut from a yard of fabric.
3. Easy to Cut
No measuring. No templates. Use a rotary cutter or scissors. No expensive cutting machines required—and there are stitching lines and matching marks printed on every shape!
4. Sew with a Running Stitch or by Machine
Sew with a running stitch instead of whip-stitching over templates with English Paper Piecing!
It is more portable, more fun, more precise, and faster! And the stitches don't show on the front!
If you want to sew by machine, choose the larger sizes. The design book includes instructions for continuous stitching by hand, precision machine piecing, and how to combine hand and machine piecing (hybrid piecing) for the best of both worlds—speed and portability.
5. Fussy Cut
Yes, you can Fussy Cut (Fussy Print) with Inklingo. (2 minute video) This is especially popular with quilters who are making Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses (POTC).
6. Print scraps and Jelly Rolls
Monkey shows you how to print on Jelly Rolls on the All About Inklingo blog.
6. You can finish an EPP UFO with Inklingo!
"English Paper Piecing Rescue" is one of the most popular pages on the All About Inklingo blog!
7. Sew Hexagons by Machine for Grandmother's Flower Garden
A new video on the blog gives my best tips for sewing hexagons (or any inset seams!) by machine. You can do it!
. . . and another video by hand.
The Quiltmaker featured Inklingo hexagons and there is an article on their Quilty Pleasures blog.

LEARN TO HAND PIECE
The two-hour hand piecing lesson in Quilted Diamonds 2
