Welcome to Inklingo!

Linda Franz Inklingo

If you are like me, sometimes you feel intimidated by starting a new quilt. No one wants to become discouraged and never finish.

When you start with perfect shapes printed on the fabric, you can be confident you can finish with a smile—like tens of thousands of quilters in more than 65 countries.

Inklingo is the quilting tool we’ve always wanted. I’m here to start you on this exciting new adventure.

“Today I actually printed on fabric. It is great! My husband is more than surprised that printing on fabric comes out so neat. I’m reading your newsletter/blog and love it.” – Birgitt in Germany

I am a quilter too and I am happy to help, so you can enjoy using this amazing tool. Inklingo IS the quilting tool we’ve always wanted.

Inklingo is featured on The Quilt Show with Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims, Episode 2911. If you are not a member, you can sign up for a free 7-day trial to watch this one-hour show and any others.

I always recommend starting with the FREE Diamond Triangle Square shape collection because it includes the first chapter of The Inklingo Handbook (pages H5 – H48) and some great shapes to print on fabric ($20 value). You should also see the Guided Tour in your account under Downloads.

If you included your mailing address on your order, I will send you a free fabric sample printed with Inklingo. (Canada & USA only)

I have drawn the layouts of shapes so you can print them. It is as simple as possible.

Print your first shapes following a step-by-step example with the free Diamond Triangles Square shape collection.

The example uses the free shape collection because everyone has it, but the steps are the same for any other shape collection. One method, hundreds of designs!

The shape collections are big PDF files. It is necessary to open with Adobe Reader (free) and not a browser or a different PDF viewer. (Download Instructions.)

Inklingo Custom Page Sizes

  • how to print a test page
  • how to print on small scraps
  • how to avoid jams
  • how to print on dark fabric

You can look at those tutes (tutorials) in any order. The blog is also searchable. The mystery Case of the Stranger in Margaritaville is a good intro for beginners.
