Yesterday I finally downloaded the free inklingo templates and spent a lot of time figuring out how to find what I wanted to print. After doing that I had to go downstairs and find the freezer paper and pick out the fabric I wanted to use, then wash it, cut it, cut the freezer paper and then iron the fabric to the freezer paper. I then printed out the inklingo templates for the diamond shapes. That process went amazingly well. Just the right amount of ink. I then cut out 8 of them with my scissors. I had printed out 16 of them on an 8 x 10 pieces of fabric. It didn’t take all that long to sew them together and this picture is the result before pressing. Now I have to pick another fabric and repeat the process for the squares and triangles that will finish the block. I am thinking I will use a red fabric. I wonder which ink color will work best on red. Maybe yellow?
