    I use it when I do quilted photos. I also use it (1" size") when I need fusible interfacing. If I need a piece 7" by 9" I can just count off the squares and cut it to size.

    Oh My! This is very nifty. I've often wondered how people who work with teensy tiny pieces can maintain their sanity and figured something like this was certainly "not for me". BUT, I love "odd" techniques like this and will certainly give it a try -- maybe do a block for a pillow cover.

    I have made several wall hangings using the pre-printed 2" grid. It is fast and easy. You can buy several different kits using this method. You can check my stuff out on my webshots below:

    I'm going to try this with 1.5" and 2" squares ... sounds like it should work. I've been hand stitching those together for quite a while with small scraps in hopes that someday I'll have a quilt. Thanks!
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Never thought about cutting the seams so they could be pressed open - that would definitely make it lie flatter!

    I did a doll quilt like this. I liked the finished project although it was a little on the stiff side. Maybe it was the interfacing I used.

    I used this process making a water color quilt. It is fun to do. This makes me want to do it again!
