    Cool Have you tried inklingo? Just purchased the handbook.

    There are so many new ways of marking and cutting and sewing together blocks. Heres one that has been around for a while. Inklingo by Linda Franz. I'm browsing through it and wondering if it's real. Have you tried this and what is your take on it. I'd like to hear from those of you who have used this method before I give it a go. Thanks. I'll eagerly wait for answers.
    SEW MUCH FUN!

    This doesn't seem to be used by anyone I have talked to or here either. It looks like it would work but I've tried other things that have looked like they would work too and have not been very pleased with the outcome. Inklingo is stating that it's easy and more accurate that traditional piecing. Thanks for the website gailinva.
    SEW MUCH FUN!

    I have the software. It's very simple to use. If you need to sew on the line then this is perfect for you. I got it several years ago when I had trouble getting an accurate seam when piecing. i There is a great yahoo group just for inklingo users. I get the group postings once a week and it's very active. There use to be a free sample program you could download on the website. Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville suggests using it for her scrap quilts. It's a very popular program. I haven't read any negative reviews about it anywhere.
    Got fabric?

    I spend enough money on ink and have all the other tools, I think this wouldn't be for me. Maybe if I were younger and just starting out.

    I have some of Inklingo shape collections. I love both hand piecing and machine piecing so Inklingo does help and it's a great tool plus Linda Franz the creator of Inklingo is really friendly and helpful in handling any questions. You may want to consider watching her videos. Give it a try , even her free collections is fabulous.
