This is a big day for two blogs!

Quiltmaker MayJune 2013

1. QUILTY PLEASURES BLOG

Today Quilty Pleasures, the blog for Quiltmaker Magazine, features an article I wrote about Inklingo!

See it here.

I was thrilled when Diane Harris, the Interactive Editor, invited me to write about Inklingo. She is an Inklingoist too.

Thank you, Diane! It is a great opportunity for more quilters to hear about Inklingo.

The timing is great because the current issue of Quiltmaker is all about hexagons, and we just happen to be doing a beginner lesson on the All About Inklingo blog too.

INKLINGO Periwinkle Quilt Lesson  IPQ Part 2

2. INKLINGO PERIWINKLE QUILT (IPQ) – LESSON PART 2

We’re calling our IPQ a “reverse mystery.”

It’s a lesson for the new Periwinkle Octagon shape collection and it is perfect for Inklingo beginners.

The page numbers start at 7 because Part 1 ended with page 6.

This time, it’s all about choosing fabric and starting to print.

INTRO PRICE

As usual, the new Periwinkle shapes are at a very special intro price—but for a limited time only!

 

Inklingo Hexagon Quilt Design Book Hexagon Quilt Design Book is a bonus.

BONUS

Designing and sewing with octagons is similar to designing and sewing with hexagons, so when you buy this new shape collection I will add the Hexagon Quilt Design Book (70 pages, PDF), a $20 value!

Inklingo Periwinkle Quilt  IPQ Blog Badge

Spreading the Word!

  1. You can use the badge on your blog, if you like (right sidebar).
  2. If you are an experienced Inklingoist please leave a comment on the Quilty Pleasures blog today, so other quilters will be inspired to start inklingoing too. Let’s thank Diane and the magazine for educating quilters about Inklingo.
  3. If you know quilters who are looking for an introduction to Inklingo, please let them know about the IPQ lesson. Even if they aren’t sewing the quilt, the free PDFs are full of good info and prove that you don’t have to be a computer nerd to print on fabric!

Thank you for visiting both blogs, and thank you, Diane!

There are more big days to come. Come on back for Part 3, okay?

    Linda, I have not been able to download part 1 or part 2
    I did not have any trouble with cosg downloads. any suggestions?

  2. Linda says:

    Hi Sandy, I am sorry for the frustration. I use Firefox too and it works for me, so I can’t reproduce the problem. What browser are you using? I Googled “Can’t download PDF in Firefox” and found this:
    https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/pdf-files-are-blank-and-cant-be-downloaded-mac
    If that solution works, please let me know. Thank you for your patience. Hugs, Linda & Monkey

    I too, have trouble downloading these pdf’s on my usual browser, Firefox. However, if I open it in Safari, there is no problem.

  4. Sandy says:

    Yes, I got things change to adobe and it works fine. Thank you for the link. This is a beautiful quilt top. Great spring idea. Now if the weather would cooperate.
    thanks

    Linda, I absolutely love the new Periwinkle Quilt Project and hope to do it. However, I would really like to do a smaller version. My time is so limited these days (plus having health issues) that I am a bit reluctant to start anything with so many small pieces. I am afraid it would become a UFO. :o( Do you have any layouts that would produce a smaller wall quilt – just so I could make something with this new design package, or is there an EQ6/7 file I could play with?

    Thanks for all you do – your INKLINGO designs are AMAZING! I think you should change the name to “The Amazing and Fantastic World of INKLINGO!” :o) :o) :o)

    Hi Linda,
    I thought I would share for your readers that use Mozzilla Firefox and are having trouble downloading the process to go through. When they last upgraded, i know it took me a while to figure it out and even sometimes today need to dbl ck myself- haha.

    Anyways, FOR THOSE USING FIREFOX:
    Left click (index finger) on the download link.
    When the download option box pops up, choose option “open document”. This should open the document in a new tab or window. Go to that tab/window and you can view the document.
    To SAVE or PRINT the document, you need to use the keys that pop up in the lower center of the document when the mouse hovers over the document, in the lower 1/3. Do not use your MS Windows’ FILE drop down menu – IT WILL NOT WORK. This pdf saves like a DROP BOX file, only. I hope this helps!
    I think as folks get used to the different ways different programs will open and save files, the more second nature it will become for them to try another mode until they have success.

    Oh, how I love this design! It is going to make some absolutely stunning quilts!

  8. Cyn in S Calif says:

    I’m having trouble, too. Never have before. I d/l the lesson PDF, but when i try to read it my whole system locks up. Very frustrating. Not sure of a work-a-around yet. Might try reading it while off-line and see if that is better.

  9. Linda says:

    Hi Cyn, Did you see Donna’s comment? She said:

    I, too had trouble downloading in Firefox. The link Linda provided above gave me the answer. Here’s what to do:
    Select Tools/Options/Applications
    Find Portable Document Format (PDF) and select Acrobat Reader.
    Restart Firefox.
    Firefox was using a PDF.js reader which apparently doesn’t work with my Windows XP!

    The link I sent was:
    https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/pdf-files-are-blank-and-cant-be-downloaded-mac
    Let me know how you do, okay? I will watch for your reply.
    Hugs, Linda & Monkey
