    Love my first 6-inch basket. This is only my third or fourth block using Inklingo and I love the results! I followed Linda’s back-basting lesson to appliqu√© the handle. I love it! I am so happy that I discovered Inklingo!

    The 3″ ones are a treat, the 4.5″ ones are amazing and these 6″ baskets are the icing on the cake! They go together perfectly and oh, so easily! I can’t imagine wanting to make baskets any way but with my templates printed on fabric using Inklingo!
