REVIEWS – BY Quilters FOR Quilters

There are some reviews in The Inklingo Smart Shopper’s Idea Book, but there is always room for more.

We haven’t mentioned it lately, but you can leave a review of an Inklingo download on the website—and we love it when you do!

  Will you write a review?

The Review Button is under the Add to Cart button on the left side of every product page.

It is much more interesting when quilters learn about Inklingo from other quilters, not just me.

$25 Gift Certificate(s)

Since it is so easy to forget to write a review, there is a little incentive this time, okay?

  • Everyone who leaves a review will be in a draw for a $25 Gift Certificate for Inklingo.
  • The shape collection you review can even be a free one.
  • One chance for each review, maximum of 5 chances per quilter.
  • You MUST own the shape collection you are reviewing. (I’ll be checking.)
  • The Gift Certificate will be awarded on Thursday, November 22—Thanksgiving Day in the USA.
  • There will be additional Gift Certificates if the response is large. Monkey likes to keep the odds of winning good!
  • There will be a bonus prize if there is a short review that makes us laugh.


I get some great comments and “reviews” in private emails (thank you!), but it is even better to write something for the website, where the skeptical can see it!

Short & sweet is best, so it doesn’t take long. One of my all-time favorites is “Inklingo rocks!”

Proof-reading the Smart Shopper’s Idea Book was very tedious this time because we added so many pages. If you find any booboos like missing links, please be sure to let me know, okay?


What’s next? More hexagons!

I have suddenly received several requests for 5/8 inch hexagons (0.625 inches). I started this shape collection a long time ago, but was distracted by other requests. It is “almost finished” and it will be a welcome change of pace compared to some more difficult projects. I should be able to finish it this week, so stay tuned, okay?

Monkey says maybe you’ll win a Gift Certificate. That would cover it.

If you request a shape collection, please be sure to mention the size, okay?

Thank you very much for visiting.

  1. Only recently have I fully dedicated myself to using my Inklingo pieces printed from the Free Diamond/Triangles/Square collection. So wonderful to just print out the pieces, cut, and BEGIN sewing so QUICKLY! Why did I wait so long to try something I now carry around with me everywhere. No more making templates, tracing, cutting, sewing, OOPS! not quite right, back to the drawing board.
    Now, each and every time, the pieces are accurate, the sewing line perfect, and the bits of time here and there quickly add up to finished blocks. Sew as quickly or as slowly as you like; there is not much else to slow you down. So much more time to spend handpiecing and I do enjoy handpiecing. Why did I wait so long?

  2. I have spent hours this evening pouring over the pages of the Smart Shopper’s Idea Book. The requested designs have me absolutely entranced with all sorts of ideas flying though my mind.

  3. A contest that ends on Thanksgiving? Perfect! We have so much to be thankful for because of Inklingo, and this is a great way of letting us give back a little too. The least we can do is put up a review of a collection we love!

    Thanks for the opportunity to win a gift certificate too. But everybody’s a winner with Inklingo. 😉
