Print on fabric instead of using curved acrylic templates. Enjoy sewing this unusual design thanks to the stitching lines and matches along the seams.

Sew gentle curves by hand or by machine or a combination of both (hybrid). Detailed instructions.

Ribbon Flower 12-inch is an unusual block, similar to Dahlia, with intriguing design possibilities. Combine hand and machine piecing and appliqué.

When you print the shapes on fabric, the preparation is faster and more precise AND you have matching marks along the curves to make the sewing faster and more precise too.

System Requirements – Windows or Mac with Adobe Reader (not a phone or tablet) and any ordinary color Inkjet printer or all-in-one.

For a baby niece! Lots of love in this family, I think. Brilliant added touch with the leaves!

    This is the most amazing collection! The number of different looks we can get, depending on fabric placement and shapes used in each block, seem endless. It is a block that would be near impossible without Inklingo, I think, as the perfect stitching lines and matching points make it oh, so easy to line everything up – and, of course, Inklingo templates make any curved piecing so much easier than it may appear! One of my favourite things about this is the mitred corner effect with the background pieces. I absolutely love that look!!
    I remember when the Smart Shoppers Idea Book first came out and I saw this design in it. I so hoped we would eventually have this collection and now that we do,I know I am going to have endless hours of fun sewing ahead of me!
    We really need more than five stars to rate this one!!
