In the 1930s, the shapes were prepared with paper or cardboard templates and scissors. The next step was acrylic templates and a rotary cutter. Now, Inklingo makes this design accessible to more quilters.

No measuring. No templates! Use scissors or a rotary cutter.

There is a video showing how easy it is to rotary cut curves without templates. The example uses the New York Wheel shape collection but it is the same for Cleopatra's Fan.

No expensive cutting machines required—and there are perfect stitching lines and matching marks printed on every piece!


Precision corners make the sewing easier

4. Easy to Sew with Precision Corners
