Inklingo for Beginners

There is a new page on the website called Inklingo for Beginners (under the Support tab).

That’s the news, but we also wanted to show you what we like to do when we aren’t at the computer.

Very little of an Inklingo quilter’s time is actually spent at the computer. Inklingo quilters can sew anywhere they like!

Just a few minutes of printing makes it possible to cut and sew somewhere else—like on the front porch, or at the local ball park, or even <gasp> at the sewing machine in an air conditioned room. 

Get out and enjoy!

We have been having perfect front porch weather. Low 80s is ideal and every Inklingo shape is perfect too.

No math?

Canadians use both Centigrade and Fahrenheit. I have never been very good at converting from one to the other, but I know that 28 is 82 (C to F). That’s my kind of weather—comfortable and no tricky math.

Inklingo takes the tricky math out of quilting too, because you only need to know the finished size. 

Inklingo is even simpler than the weather forecast for beginners.

No sweat!

We thought about what quilters need to know about Inklingo.

We decided the new page for beginners should be pretty and practical.

And we made it a page on the website and a PDF, so if you want to print it out to show to your front porch friends, you can. (This is a nice handout  for Inklingo Affiliates. Use it on your blog too.)

 Highs of 27 and 28.

I forecast a few more days on the front porch this week.

Monkey says: Let’s print and go back outside. I say: Stay cool—or take a sweater, depending on your forecast. 

Don’t forget to take Tilde’s 15 Minute Challenge. It’s not just for beginners, and there will be a draw on August 1st for a $25 Gift Certificate.

Inklingo for Beginners  Love the lines. Quilt more!

    Monkey looks so comfortable reclining there! All he needs is to train the chipmunk to peel him a banana!! :-)

  2. Monkey has such a wonderful collection of chairs – I love this rustic one. He certainly looks comfortable enjoying the warm weather on the front porch with his little furry friend.

    “Are those seeds you’re eating, Chippie? Any monkey nuts?” asked Monkey “If you’d bring me a few I’ll allow you to stay on the porch with me. I’m just too comfy to consider moving!”
    I can’t ever imagine calling 28 degrees C ‘comfortable’ – I start wilting at about 22! (It’s a good job we don’t get much very hot weather – I’d have to emigrate!). I’m off to investigate the new page!

    Wow, looks like a fantastic piece of property. It’s nice to have woodland friends along with the citified “Monkey”. No jungle for him. I have yet to start any projects but did print a couple of sheets of fabric. SSSOOONNN I hope. Thank you for the inspirations.

    I agree that 82 F sounds about perfect but then again I live in the high desert of Utah so we don’t have much in the way of humidity most of the time. This year has been an exception with more rainy weather than usual in the summer.
    I also agree that when people ask why I would want to hand piece anything that my first answer is about how portable it is to Inklingo my take along projects! LOL

    Love your photos with Monkey & the chipmunk. I believe that the new page on your website, “Inklingo for beginners”, is fabulous for a beginning Inklingo-er. It is a great way to start and most useful, with a succint summary and links, pulling together all relevant information from your website.
