& More Good Things about Inklingo Deluxe Winding Ways

  • use a rotary cutter or scissors
  • optional combo layouts to save time and fabric
  • ideal for scraps
  • fussy cut some of the shapes for impressive effects
  • sew curves easily thanks to the stitching lines and matching marks
  • ideal for hand piecing
  • follow the innovative one-page guide to stay organized while you sew and press

Traditionally, quilters have used homemade or acrylic templates for Winding Ways. The curves in this design are much easier to sew when you print the shapes on fabric, thanks to the precision corners and matching marks. In this special case, we want the dog ears to help line up the seams, but there is a line so you can trim them off after sewing.

    Winding Ways is such a stunning design that is so much easier than one could begin to imagine with Inklingo. The double C shape makes a huge difference and the variations in this collection mean one could easily make multiple Winding Ways quilts.

    This collection is wonderful as usual!! I really admire Linda’s talent to come up with great variations of classic blocks. And for coming up with super practical improvements and instructions for making piecing these blocks as easy as possible. Thank you, Linda & Monkey!
