An Inklingo Finish!

I fnished my second, hand pieced quilt for this year! It's called Pies and Tarts, it's a Sue Daley pattern and was made using the Inklingo method. If you've never heard of Inklingo, you havn't seen the most exact way of piecing ever! I use it for the exactness of handpiecing but it can also make machine quiltng very exact and easy. Linda Franz, is the inventor and you can read all about it here.
