Templates for Swinging Old Lady

All of the templates for Swinging Old Lady are included in a new Inklingo shape collection, so you can print the shapes on fabric and make this swinging design by Willyne.


Swinging Old Lady is one of the most popular designs in Willyne Hammerstein’s new Millefiori Quilts 4 book.

No wonder!

Willyne is a genius.

Inklingo No Waste Fussy Cutting
Print 10 identical sheets of fabric to get sets of 10 identical shapes. Or print 4 identical sheets of fabric for 4 identical sets. Or 6 identical sheets . . .

Of course, Inklingo is better than acrylic for traditional fussy cutting too.

A video showing how to use Inklingo for traditional Swiss Cheese Fussy Cutting features Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses but it is the same for any design.

UPDATE  I included very detailed instructions for two methods of fussy cutting in the new hardcover book, Winding Ways – Quilting the Inklingo Way. 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.

Introduction to Inklingo

There are still many quilters who don’t realize that their Inkjet printer is a fabulous quilting tool. This short video explains how and why.



As usual, I introduced the new shapes at a special price but that ends tomorrow night at midnight (extended from tonight).

Les Fruits de Mer and Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head are coming this month too, so please stay tuned.

Thank you for visiting.

  1. Hello Linda,

    Well this new collection is really nice. Like I said the other day, this will keep us going for a long time. I mind is spinning with the ideas that can come alive with these shapes.

    So keep up the great work Linda, but don’t forget to sleep sometimes.
    Best regards.
