Detectives should subscribe to the blog and follow the Inklingo Facebook page. Beautiful photos and videos were posted again this week.

We have covered some dazzling info in the mystery clues! You should have become more familiar with the resources on the website and the two methods of fussy cutting that we use with Inklingo.

You should be confident that you can sew ANY pieced hexagon with a running stitch, no matter what the shapes and no matter whether the shapes are available from Inklingo.

By the way, the clues for the Case of the Secret Garden (COTSG) and the Case of the Stranger in Margaritaville (COTSIM) are still on the blog, and they are great for beginners too.

  1. Dear Driveway Barb,
    Thank you! What a fabulous reaction!
    I am delighted that you learned some new things while you were sewing the mystery clues. When I was designing the quilt, I was thinking about what techniques each little change would allow me to teach.
    I think the decision to allow every quilt to have a different center made it more fun too.

  2. This mystery is sooooooo beautiful!! I am just getting started on mine and will keep you posted as I go! I know that all of your excellent clues will help me with every step along the way. Thank you Linda and Monkey!!

  3. What fun, Linda and Monkey! I enjoyed every step of the way and even as a “seasoned” Inklingoist, I learned some new things! I used your instructions to the letter to make individual window templates for fussy cutting my center block. And what a cool way to make each quilt unique, but giving us instructions to make that center block our own. I hate for the clues to end…… can we have a new mystery soon? Can’t wait to stitch my whole quilt together!
