One of the amazing things about Golden Wedding Ring with Inklingo is that you can use a rotary cutter OR scissors—something you can’t do with acrylic templates.
You might be surprised by how simple it is to rotary cut curves without a template.
I was so thrilled with the ease of rotary cutting along a curved line that I made this short video when we were doing a mystery quilt called The Case of the Secret Garden. Can you believe it was FIVE years ago already!
This six-minute video shows several good tips for rotary cutting curves AND straight lines, so it is worth watching again if you haven’t seen it for a while.
In addition to the new Golden Wedding Ring shape collections and design book, there are MANY Inklingo shape collections with curves.
These (above) are a few that are listed on the Main Shapes with Curves Page under the Shop tab on the website and listed in the Index of Shapes under the Support tab on the website. There is Apple Core to Yin Yang—and everything in between.
In the video, I use a Martelli rotary cutter (no affiliation) but you can use any kind and get great results.
By the way, it is not necessary to use a smaller blade on these curves. (The smaller the blade, the faster it wears out.) With acrylic templates, a 45 mm blade does not always fit the curve.
Just follow the lines! Haven’t we always preferred to have a line to cut along?
The beauty is that with Inklingo,, once the shapes are cut out, you can sew by hand or by machine.
There are illustrations on pages 32 and 33 of the new Golden Wedding Ring Design Book showing why the method we use for rotary cutting with Inklingo is SAFER than traditional rotary cutting with templates or rulers.
Since the design book is FREE (for a limited time only), you can order and download and have all of my best tips.
In addition to the illustrated sewing instructions (hand and machine), cutting tips and pressing diagrams, there are worksheets and ideas for choosing fabric in the design book.
The design book is free for a limited time ($20 value).
Please tell your friends, so they don’t miss it!
When you have stitching lines, matching marks and precision corners on every shape, it makes the sewing faster and more precise.
We do everything we can to make it easy to start printing on fabric. I am still mailing free fabric samples to new Inklingo quilters too, as described on the Main Beginner’s Page.
