No templates, no basting—unless you want to baste. On the other hand, there are 8 Good Ways to Use Inklingo for EPP if that is the method you prefer.

    I love Hexies and I want to try more of the size patterns in this block! I purchased this block because I wanted a portable project to use all those pieces left over from other projects.

    I am having so much fun hand piecing this small quilt top! I can print 16 two inch hexagons from a fat quarter of fabric. The printed lines are so clear and crisp and easy to follow. I am hand piecing a lap size quilt at this time because I am finding it very relaxing to do while watching tv in the evenings. But I find that it would also be very easy to machine piece this size hexagon and it would go together quite quickly.

    I am making this – with a little help from my quilt group friends – for next year’s raffle quilt for charity. My friends have watched me work on several Inklingo quilts and they want to try. I chose this size because it goes together quickly and it has straight lines – great for a beginners project.
