Inklingo Clue 02 - One-Page Guide

This clue includes

  • Our One-Page Guide to keep you organized at the machine
  • Sewing and pressing tips
  • Cheat Sheet for 75 x 75-inch quilt
  • Cheat Sheet for 111 x 111-inch quilt

Monkey and I think you will love the Inklingo method of sewing this week because:

  • It is very fast when you have lines to cut on and lines to sew on.
  • It is very accurate, so the finished units look great.
  • The stretchy bias seams are sewn before they are cut, so there is no distortion.
  • It uses fabric very efficiently.
  • There is straight grain in all the right places.
  • It is easy to press for nesting seams, so your points are pointy.
  • The one-page guide gives you confidence.

Rotary cut several layers at a time with Inklingo.


  1. If you are new to Inklingo, please follow the Quick Start Guide on the website!
    We always recommend starting with the FREE  Diamond/Triangle/Square Shape Collection, so there are no surprises when you buy something. The first chapter of The Inklingo Handbook is included with the free shapes! See pages H5-H48.
  2. DOWNLOAD the FREE Inklingo Celtic Solstice PDF for Clue 02.
    (You can catch up on Clue 01 too if you like.)
  3. Order and download Bonnie’s Celtic Solstice Shape Collection ($20).

NOTE  Bonnie’s Shape Collection will stay at a special low price for a few weeks, so you can make your decision after you have seen a few clues and played with the FREE shape collection. This is a mystery, not a race!

Bonnie’s Celtic Solstice Shape Collection includes all of the shapes for all of the clues.


Thanks to Bonnie, many quilters who would not normally be able to do the mystery are included this time.

If you print the shapes on fabric with Inklingo, you can sew Celtic Solstice even if you are not comfortable with rotary cutting. Inklingo makes it possible to get the results you want. Everyone is welcome and you can start any time.

Most quilters who have not printed on fabric with Inklingo imagine that it takes more time than it does, so this series of clues should get you excited about the possibilities, whether it is another Bonnie Hunter Quilt or Hunter’s Star or any of the other quilts in the Inklingo Smart Shopper’s Idea Book.

  1. What a slick technique! Who would want to make this block any other way? I just love it! No triangles to cut off, no wasted fabric, two units at a time… It’s magic!!! Thanks for sharing!

  2. OH this will be wonderful with Inklingo~ Late start this morning so am ready to download part two and get some printing done
    Thanks Linda and Monkey for such a great product…makes me such a better quilter LOL

  3. Wanted to get up early but did not! But up and running now… Off to get the fabric and freezer paper to start on part 2. Yeah. Thanks Linda for helpful tips.

  4. I’m excited to start Clue 2. (I’ll finish Clue 1 this morning. Clue 1 came together beautifully for me, thanks to Inklingo.)
    I really love hand piecing, so machine piecing is still challenging for me. Thanks for your detailed and thorough instructions and tips.
