Applique Printing Instructions (PDF)
There are sample Print Dialog boxes, so you can print any Inklingo appliqué designs in any size.
We print on the wrong side of fabric with Inklingo for piecing, but for appliqué, we can print on the right side of the fabric OR on the wrong side for perfect positioning—in 20 different colors—or on freezer paper.
Your printer is your best marking tool.
It is worthwhile to become familiar with the settings for your Inkjet printer.
No more tracing, or light boxes, or expensive markers, or overlays for positioning. Fabric prints just like paper when it is stabilized with freezer paper, and Inklingo shapes are printed with colors of ink that wash out easily.
Wow! No wonder quilters say Inklingo is the quilting tool we’ve always wanted!
It’s easy to print on fabric.
Refer to the free chapter of The Inklingo Handbook for complete instructions for printing on fabric. It is included in the free Inklingo Shape Collection for LeMoyne Star.
