Winding Ways Quilting the Inklingo Way

(3 customer reviews)


Winding Ways – Quilting the Inklingo Way is for everyone interested in sewing ANY design with Inklingo. It is jam-packed with information using Winding Ways as the example but it is NOT just for quilters sewing Winding Ways designs.

80 pages, hardcover

ISBN: 978-1-990146-02-2 SKU: WWHC Listed under: , , , , ,


This book could have been called “The Inklingo Handbook, Next Level.”

I love this book! Winding Ways Quilting the Inklingo Way is for you whether you are a beginner or an expert, whether or not you print with Inklingo, whether or not you fussy cut some of the shapes, whether you use a rotary cutter or scissors, whether you sew by hand or by machine or both, and whether you use yardage or scraps.

Why I Chose Winding Ways

Winding Ways was a good choice for what I wanted to teach. The info applies to any design, not just Winding Ways.

My mission is to make quilting more accessible. Although I try to entice you with a variety of Winding Ways designs, the Winding Ways examples will give you new insight into all of your quilts.

The gentle curves of Winding Ways are perfect for impressive, charming quilts. The book will take you much farther down a winding path. The info makes all curvy designs simpler and gives you a good understanding of how to use Inklingo or freezer paper templates.

Winding Ways has never been this precise, simple, and fast. No wonder quilters say Inklingo is the best thing to happen to quilting since the rotary cutter.

If you are interested in making a better quilt with less work in less time, you have found the way!

Tools & Supplies for Winding Ways Quilting the Inklingo Way

I recommend buying at least one Inklingo Winding Ways shape collection so you can print the shapes on fabric and benefit from more design tools. However, you can use this book without Inklingo or acrylic templates.

  • optional (but recommended) Inklingo Winding Ways shape collection & color Inkjet printer (any kind)
  • freezer paper (FP, for short)
  • cotton fabric washed
  • rotary cutter, two rulers, and a mat (or scissors)
  • needles & thread for hand piecing or sewing machine
  • scissors for paper
  • mechanical pencil and eraser, thin ruler,
  • 1/2 inch strip of paper (photo page 15)
  • iron and ironing surface

The gentle curves—printed on the fabric with Inklingo—are not difficult to machine piece. Of course, you can hand piece if you prefer a portable project.

Quilting does not have to be so expensive! Start with what you have and add little luxuries later. The important thing is to be creative.

There are patterns for more than a dozen quilts in the book with all the ways to make them—by hand, by machine, hybrid, and with or without fussy cutting.

Postage is exactly what I pay without a handling fee. I can often fit two or three different books in one flat-rate Priority envelope to make maximum use of postage. Your book will be mailed from Niagara Falls NY.

April 2022 If you are outside the USA, postage is very high, so you might prefer to get the downloadable version. The content is the same.

    Great book! Too much practical information to take in all at once! The title is a bit underselling this beautiful glossy hardcover book, because most of the information applies to any quilt design. It’s a great reference for any quilter, and it has pictures of Monkey :-)!

    Well, Linda has done it again!! This book is full of gorgeous quilts with an incredible variety of Winding Ways settings. Heavy, glossy pages suitable as a “coffee table” book, yet chock-full of useful information… belongs on every quilter’s bookshelf!!! So glad I bought it!!!

    Once again, Linda has hit the ball out of the park. Though the book has Winding Ways as the quilt block design, the lessons taught are applicable to any pieced block. Everything needed to successfully piece blocks with curves is there. The fussy cutting/printing techniques taught in the book make it easy to produce spectacular blocks.
    The Winding Ways designs in the book are beautiful and almost completely irresistible.
    This is a book I’d definitely say should be on a quilter’s bookshelf. It’s a great reference book and is one that I’m sure I’ll refer to often.
