Inklingo on YouTube

Inklingo Online Resources include dozens of videos on YouTube and this week we added a new one.

 

How to Open Inklingo PDFs

INKLINGO DOWNLOAD INSTRUCTIONS – NEW VIDEO

You don’t have to be a geek to use Inklingo to print on fabric!

Almost all quilters download and open an Inklingo PDF within 10 or 15 minutes of placing their very first order. This video summarizes the three steps in only 84 seconds. Cool, eh?

I am available for “tech support” too.

It is necessary to have copy protection but it is as simple and friendly as possible, so you can spend more time sewing!

 

Introduction to Inklingo

INTRODUCTION TO INKLINGO – OLD VIDEO

Once you have opened your first PDF, you will want to watch the video on the Welcome to Inklingo page on the website and follow the step by step instructions for printing your first sheet of fabric.

 

Inklingo Main Beginner's Page

Main Beginner’s Page

I always recommend starting with the FREE Diamond Triangle Square shape collection ($20 value) because it includes the first chapter of The Inklingo Handbook (pages H5 – H48) and some great shapes to print on fabric.

 

Print on fabric with your Inkjet!

You can print a “combo” like this or print the triangles, diamonds, and squares separately with the FREE Diamond Triangle Square shape collection ($20 value.)

 

Inklingo is all about making quilting more accessible. I designed Inklingo so you don’t need any special equipment or ink. All you need is a computer—either Windows or Mac—free Adobe Reader software, and an Inkjet printer.

Inklingo quilters spend very little time on the computer or printing compared to the amount of time they spend choosing fabric and sewing.

Printing is the fastest way to get everything ready to sew!

OTHER YOUTUBE VIDEOS

There are dozens of Inklingo Videos on YouTube. I recently organized them into Playlists to make it easier to find the one you want.

You are welcome to share my videos with your friends or on your blog. Of course, I love it if you give a video a thumbs up on YouTube too!

You do NOT have to have a Facebook account to see what I post there if you go directly to
https://www.facebook.com/inklingo

Just because you have liked the Inklingo Facebook Page does NOT mean Facebook will show you what I post, so you might want to visit directly every once in a while too.

It is more fun for everyone if you share your photos online!

I have an idea for Part 4 of this series and there are new shapes coming too. If you want to be notified, please subscribe (top of right sidebar).

In the meantime, just in case you missed them:

It is a beautiful Saturday here with temps in the 50s! It doesn’t feel like November 2016 at all . . . maybe because I’m experiencing 1529 in Wolf Hall with a needle and thread.

Clamshell Rose in Electric Quilt

Thank you to Annika at Stof Genoeg!

She saw the comments on the blog from quilters who wanted to know how to draw Clamshell Rose quilts in Electric Quilt and she found a brilliant solution!

 

Video Clamshell Rose in Electric Quilt

TWO VIDEOS!

Annika has posted TWO videos on her blog showing how she drew Inklingo Clamshell Rose designs with EQ7.

 

Inklingo Clamshell Rose in Electric Quilt

I just had to try it myself and I am thrilled with the results.

There are a few extra lines in the Electric Quilt layouts because Clamshell is a continuous design but it works beautifully!

I think you will find it fascinating to see how Annika figured this out but you can download my EQ7 project file now too.

Clamshell Quilt design

There are many, many ways to use the new Clamshell Rose shape collection shown in Part 1 and Part 2.

This time, I am playing with replacing some of the whole Clamshells with half Clamshells to create new effects.

It’s mind-boggling! LOL

I have rushed myself to post again today before the special low intro price expires tonight at midnight.

I would like to play more with this one. Do you see birds or butterflies?

One of the 20 Inklingo colors will show on the back of almost any dark fabric and there are tips for printing on dark fabric under the Top Ten Tutes tab (above).

A completely different look using the same basic block!

It may be hard to decide on a final design but one thing is for sure. When you print the shapes on fabric with Inklingo, the preparation is faster and the sewing is more precise and more fun!

This is the same as the first one—but with one little tweak that makes me like this one even more.

Clamshell Rose Quilt

When I realized what could happen with the addition of a melon shape, I got excited about Clamshells—and the new Inklingo Clamshell Rose shape collection was born.

 

Print on fabric with your Inkjet

Print, rotary cut, and sew!

There is a video showing How to Rotary Cut Curves. It might surprise you.

 

Clamshell Rose Quilt

I think it is natural to see symmetrical designs with these shapes.

This  might look like appliqué but it can be entirely hand pieced!

Piecing this design is simpler for many quilters, especially because sewing this design with a running stitch (or by machine) ensures that the petals are all perfectly symmetrical.

Of course , if you prefer appliqué, you can print the shapes with Inklingo and appliqué to a background.

There is a chapter on appliqué in The Inklingo Handbook.

 

Clamshell Rose Pillow

This asymmetrical design would make a fabulous pillow cover, don’t you think? It is 18 x 18 inches because (4 x 4) + 2 = 18.

I’m intrigued by this too.

My Clamshell Rose sketchbook has more variations. Some of them combine the Clamshell Rose shapes with the shapes in Clamshell Edges. There’s more excitement coming in Part 3.

The shapes in the new Clamshell Rose shape collection create some elegant possibilities.

When I started playing with the melon shape, my sketchbook filled up quickly.

I can hardly wait to share them with you!

 

Clamshell Rose 8 inch block

Even the simplest 8 inch block has possibilities.

Two of these use the corner shape and two of these replace each corner with a melon and two “bottom half” clamshells.

 

Clamshell Rose Corners

Intriguing. I need to play with this.

 

Clamshell Rose 12 inch blocks

These are 12 inch blocks.

 

Clamshell template 4 inch

TIP Every Clamshell is 4 inches across and that makes it is easy to confirm the block size.

 

Clamshell Rose 16 inch block

These are 16 inch blocks.

 

Clamshell Rose melon shape

This 8 inch block doesn’t use a Clamshell at all! It is a mini Orange Peel.

(Other sizes of Orange Peel are available. Main Orange Peel Page.)

Orange-peel-y Clamshell Rose.

My sketchbook is filling up!

 

Clamshell Rose - Tudor RoseQuilt

This color variation of Clamshell Rose reminds me of Tudor Rose.

INTRODUCTORY SALE PRICES

If you’ve been following Inklingo from the beginning, you know that each new shape collection is at a special low price for the first few days and that’s it. It works like a kind of loyalty program because existing Inklingo quilters are the most likely to hear about the new shapes first and get the lowest price.

I hope you enjoy playing with these shapes as much as I do and that you will come back to see more of the designs in my sketchbook!
