When you discover the benefits of Inklingo as a quilting tool, we know you'll be back.
1. WHAT IS INKLINGO?
Inklingo is a simple and economical way to save time and make better quilts by machine or by hand, pieced or appliquéed.
Inklingo uses digital files (PDFs) to print shapes on fabric with any ordinary Inkjet printer.
Inklingo replaces measuring tools and templates. It is so innovative it is patented!
When you print the shapes on fabric with Inklingo:
- It simplifies the cutting
- It simplifies the sewing.
- It allows you to cut with scissors, or cut several layers at a time with a rotary cutter.
- It allows you to make simple or complex designs more easily.

2. WHAT FABRIC CAN I USE?
Almost any cotton quilting fabric is suitable for Inklingo. When it is ironed to freezer paper, it goes through a printer safely, just like paper.
The 20 different colors of Inklingo ink which are used in the PDFs will show on almost any fabric and are likely to wash out completely. There are tips for dark fabric in The Inklingo Handbook and on the All About Inklingo blog.
Any ordinary Inkjet printer allows you to print “custom page sizes” to minimize waste, so Inklingo uses fabric very efficiently. In some cases, “combo layouts” allow you to use less fabric than with traditional methods.

3. WILL THE INK SHOW?
There is a simple test page with all 20 Inklingo ink colors, so you can test to be sure that the ink in your printer will wash out, and that a color does not show through the front.

There are so many choices that it can be hard to decide!
