Kris, I should have realized you were using your quilt program.   I think I can find something online to help

We could still collaborate if you like.

Kris,

Can i pick your brains, i think i heard you say that you use inklingo, how do you use it, ive read that you can use your printer to print on fabric, does it work.

lots of love

Frances, 

yes it works. I've been using it for about five years. I really like it. I used to draw the lines before I discovered Inklingo. I wouldn't do hexagons without it.

If you go to Linda's YouTube channel you'll see the many things you can do. She has lots of tutorials and offers a free shape collection so you can try it.

Kris,

I want to thank you and give you a virtual <<<<HUG>>>> for telling us about Inklingo!  I have ordered the Handbook and have some hexie patterns, and have made a couple of practice pieces.  I can tell it is going to make piecing so much easier for me than the more traditional EPP method.  All the cutting and folding I can avoid with these old hands is wonderful for me.  I like having something I can work on while listening to TV in the evening, and this is going to be just the ticket!

Here is a picture of my first two 'test' projects.  The little ruler is 6" to help give you some scale.  

The star will become a coaster, and the GFG block will fit into an on-going GFG lap quilt I having been working on for a while.  

Max

Max I will second that!  I love Inklingo...my only problem is my printer does not like it as much as I do...lol.  Needless to say a new printer is on my wishlist and I don't think I can wait til Christmas!

Kris, did you just see the release from Inklingo and Quiltville that the new Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt "Celtic Solstice" is Inklingo compatible?  And, Linda is having a sale price on the Inklingo set that will work with this quilt!  Would you consider hosting a Group on QCA for Inklingoists?  Maybe using this mystery quilt as a learning project?  (A good excuse for me to buy that printer sooner rather than later.) 

Max, would you agree and participate?  Anyone else want to join us?

Yes Donna,  I saw it. I've been thinking about my colour choices.

Linda usually posts about which shapes to use with Bonnie's mysteries.  I used Inklingo for last year's. I'm happy they've created a collection for this one.

I don't know if we'll get enough people for a separate group.

We usually do Bonnie's mysteries in the swap group but it will be wonderful to have others working with Inklingo as well. We could work together there. Nana can open a thread (or two) for us.

I never tried the inklings cd that came with our first QCA package.   Will it work for this or do I need to get something more?

Wow, did we get an Inklingo cd with our first QCA package?  I didn't remember that!  I will have to see if I can find it!  I probably still have it...somewhere...lol!  

Gini, Kris will probably know the answer to your question.  I am still a novice with Inklingo.
