Inklingo Periwinkle Quilt – Lesson Part 1

Inklingo Periwinkle Quilt


We’re calling our IPQ Inkllingo Periwinkle Quilt a “reverse mystery.”

It’s a lesson for the new Periwinkle Octagon shape collection and it is perfect for Inklingo beginners.

The Inklingo Periwinkle Quilt Part 1
Free PDF (6 pages, 1.9 MB)

We start the IPQ lesson with our ABCs!

The IPQ lesson gives step-by-step instructions that everyone can complete together.

This is a “reverse mystery” because you know in advance what you are making, but the format is similar to the Case of the Secret Garden mystery quilt (COTSG).

Inklingo Hexagon Quilt Design Book Hexagon Quilt Design Book is a bonus.


Octagons are a refreshing change from hexagons, but they are familiar too.

Designing and sewing with octagons are similar to designing and sewing with hexagons, so when you buy this new shape collection I will add the Hexagon Quilt Design Book (70 pages, PDF), a $20 value!

There are no instructions in the new shape collection because the lessons on the blog, the design book, and the free Inklingo shape collection will be all you need. This is a new approach, and we hope you like it.

Update: Periwinkle Quilt Part 2 and Periwinkle Quilt Part 3 are ready now too.

If you know quilters who are looking for an introduction to Inklingo, please let them know about the lesson. They will thank you later.

As one quilter recently wrote “I love it when quilters discover and try Inklingo. I am sure they say to themselves, Where has this been all my quilting life? I know I did.”

  1. I, too had trouble downloading in Firefox. The link Linda provided above gave me the answer. Here’s what to do:
    Select Tools/Options/Applications
    Find Portable Document Format (PDF) and select Acrobat Reader.
    Retstart Firefox.
    Firefox was using a PDF.js reader which apparently doesn’t work with my Windows XP!

  2. This is such a beautiful design! I know there are going to be some beautiful quilts made!
    You’ve done it again — absolutely out of this world instructions with loads of diagrams and illustrations. And all for free? You spoil us!

  3. Hi Elaine, I am sorry for the frustration. MANY quilters have already downloaded, so I suspect it is a setting in your browser. If you are using Chrome, its default is to prevent you from downloading anything so you would have to change the options. This is a good link:
    If that doesn’t work, please write back with as much detail as you can. Which browser? (Internet Explorer? Safari? Firefox?) The more detail, the better.
    Thank you for your patience. Hugs, Linda & Monkey

  4. Can’t wait to get started, bought the collection last night, so I am ready to roll, now to decide what colors, size, etc……..
