Welcome to visitors from The Quilt Show!
Diane has made several glorious Passacaglia variations with various methods. Spectacular!
Diane is a fan of Inklingo and I was excited to see how she demonstrated it.
In the first 40 minutes, Diane demonstrates gluing templates for English Paper Piecing (EPP) and then gluing to zig zag by machine with Apliquick tools .
Monkey says they saved the best for last. (We’re partial.)
START PRINTING WITH THE FREE SHAPES
I am delighted that Diane mentioned that you can try printing on fabric with the free shape collection. Inklingo is designed to work with a computer and any ordinary Inkjet printer, so anyone can try it, as Diane says, “without spending a dime.”
Diane only had a few minutes to show the printed shapes, so if you are curious about how Inklingo works, there is an 8-minute video on the Main Beginner’s Page —and that is where to order the free shapes.
If you do order the free shapes, please let me know that you heard about Inklingo from Diane on The Quilt Show.
A free fabric sample will be sent to you to get you started! (USA and Canada only)
FUSSY CUT WITH INKLINGO
I am delighted that Diane had a chance to mention that you can fussy cut with Inklingo.
Her method is different from the two methods I teach:
- Traditional Fussy Cutting with freezer paper templates, including a window template. (NO acrylic)
- Inklingo No Waste Fussy Cutting – Print identical sheets of fabric. (Similar to Stack n Whack)
Not a member—yet? For one week in March, non-members will be able watch her episode too. Very nice.
I have been a member at The Quilt Show continuously since day one, January 1, 2007. I think that watching one TQS sample video might convince you to become a member too.
When Diane showed Ricky a piece of fabric printed and still attached to the freezer paper, he “got it.” He asked some great questions. He understood immediately that you do not need paper templates or acrylic templates or glue or special tools when you use Inklingo, so it is the most economical AND the fastest way to make a quilt.
Inklingo makes it easier for anyone to start quilting AND it makes it possible to make elaborate quilts like Passacaglia in a reasonable amount of time, at a reasonable price.
If Diane’s wonderful introduction makes you want to know more about Millefiori Quilts, there is another short video on the Main Millefiori Quilts Page (under the Shop tab) showing how to sew Passacaglia by hand OR by machine with Inklingo—in only 6 minutes.
If you love learning from videos as much as I do, you might want to watch some of the replays of my Live Inklingo Videos too.
