There are some good, short videos collected under a tab on the page for the Millefiori Quilts 1 book which show how Inklingo makes Les Fruits de Mer even tastier.

Frim Fram Sauce is perfect on Seafood, don’t you think?
I included very detailed instructions for two methods of fussy cutting in the new book, Winding Ways – Quilting the Inklingo Way. (Hardcover or Download) All of the info about fussy cutting, hand and machine piecing, and fabric requirements in my new book is useful for ANY pieced design. I recommend it to everyone, so I hope you will have a look.
