My Blog Hop Party Give-Away: Fabric Printed with Inklingo Templates

Welcome All!

I’m very excited to join over 250 bloggers from 20 countries in the Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways. Thank you Michele for hosting it. Be sure to check out all the other great blog participants and enter their give-aways before this party ends on December 17.

With the special permission of Linda Franz and Inklingo, I’m thrilled to be able to give away fabric with Inklingo templates printed on them. This kit includes nearly 100 HSTs that finish at 3/4 of an inch (yup, you read that correctly, less than an inch); 10 HSTs that finish at 3 inches; 4 squares that finish at 1-1/2 inches; and a coordinating fat quarter (same fabric as the squares) that could be used for other shapes, borders and/or binding. I wish the picture quality was better, but it does give you an idea of the colors. The green print in the lower left quite a bit lighter.

Here’s a sample of the 3-inch HST, one each of the 3/4-inch HSTs, and a 1-1/2 inch square:I chose these, especially the teeny HSTs, because I wanted shapes that would normally be challenging to piece accurately using other methods. This is a great opportunity to find out why many of us are addicted to the ease and accuracy of Inklingo templates. Their cutting lines, stitching lines, and matching marks allow even an inexperienced quilter the ability to make what are usually considered very challenging quilt blocks. Whether you stitch by machine or hand, I believe you’ll enjoy piecing these.

What can you make with these shapes? A Tiny Triangle Table Topper is one choice. A FREE pdf of this pattern can be downloaded from The pattern is ‘inspired by “Vintage Voyage” from designer Ann Hermes.’ Or let your creative juices flow and design something else!

Here’s a video Linda Franz made in 2006 on how to sew HSTs the Inklingo way:

If you’d like more details on Inklingo HSTs, check out this recent Inklingo blog post.

To enter my give-away, leave a reply. In your comment let me know whether you have or have not used Inklingo templates. I’ll randomly choose the winner at the end of the day on the 17th.

’til later, Jillian in North Dakota, USA

P.S. Linda Franz is offering a free Inklingo collection of coordinating shapes named ‘Diamond, Triangle, Square‘ for anyone to download and use…

  1. Jeannette in CO says:

    I’ve started hand piecing a 3″ clam shell charm quilt from the 4″ charm exchange my guild held. I ran Inklingo to make a template to trace, since I was dealing with single pieces of different fabrics. Wish I weren’t too lazy to figure a way to work it out with the printer to print on the fabric. still trying to decide if I want to try the sashing option.

      Hi Joan. Thanks for asking, that was a question I had. No, I’ve never had a printer problem. I’ve printed thousands of shapes on three different printers (two were all-in-ones). I’ve had one printer jam years ago that did no damage (was my error). If you’d like, there’s an Inklingo yahoo group with lots of great support & inspirational photos. ~Jillian

    I have never used the Inklingo system, but just heard about it on the quiltingboard within the last week. I have downloaded many of the free items & watched the video, but won’t have time now until after Christmas to start on it. Can’t wait to give it a try. I am thrilled to think no more paper to tear off, not to mention templates to cut around. I would love to win some pre-printed on fabric to give it a try. I understand there is some testing with printer ink on scrap before you should do it on your actual project.
    Thanks for this opportunity. This is the best blop-hop site yet!
