Welcome to the Quilting Board!
A few years ago I think Pellon had the grid interfacing for doing water colour wallhangings? I still have a chunk somewhere. I should dig it out and do something with it.
I love this process. I use the preprinted interfacing that's already gridded. This is great from preparing scrappy blocks. I even use hst with this gridded system. It's amazing how easy they are to work with once ironed to the stablizer. It gets all my scrapps used up and makes transporting them easy. These make great takke-a-longs for retreats when you need to sew but don't want to pin and stress over matching seams. It a great relaxer for retreats or any time.
If you can't notice it on a galloping horse at 60 feet, it's just fine.
I am in the process of making a mondo bag using this grid method. So easy to work with. Other girls in my group have mase table runners using the grid method.
Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind see.
what a clever idea. i wonder how accurate i can be with it???!!! it is well worth a try.
thanks for sharing... never thought of making my own grid

before you speak THINK
T – is it True? H – is it Helpful? I – is it Inspiring? N – is it Necessary? K – is it Kind?
I made this a few years ago - it came out really nice - but it's still hanging on my design wall - not sure what to do with it. It did take quite a while. Perhaps a cosmetic bag : )
My postage stamp is still a UFO. I might have to give this a try when I finally get back to it.
My first quilts ever were made with the grid lining. It wasn't adhesive but did have a surface that held the blocks in place very well. I made several baby quilts with this before I got brave enough to move on. Thanks for reminding me of this process!
