Note: The page numbering starts at 9, because Clue # 1 ended with page 8.

We are taking the mystery out of Inklingo with the COTSG quilt. There are two important concepts that make printing on fabric work.

  1. Test Pages
  2. Custom Page Sizes

These two key ideas make Inklingo the quilting tool we’ve always wanted.


Print and cut with Inklingo

This week is all about printing and cutting.

There is no sewing until Clue # 3. This may be a tiny bit disappointing to Inklingoists who already know how to print dozens of sheets of fabric quickly and easily, but we think even they will like the new Print Checklist and other tips.


Inklingo Print Checklist

When you have printed your first sheet of fabric, you will be an expert too.

The mystery quilt is perfect for Inklingo beginners, but not designed for beginning quilters. (The blocks are only 6 inches with small pieces and curves.)

The mystery quilt can be machine pieced OR hand pieced. Your choice!


A good detective knows how to interrogate.  (That means “If you have questions, please ask.”)

If additional evidence, plot twists, or surveillance videos are uncovered, they will be on the blog before the next clue is announced. You can subscribe to the blog (top of right sidebar) to make it easier to dust for evidence. (That’s the only kind of dusting we like.)

Here it is again: The Case of the Secret Garden Clue # 2
Free PDF (9 pages, 1.1 MB, begins with page 9)

Sometimes being an informant is a good thing, so please tell your friends about the mystery and then let the printing begin!
