    Pellon Grid on Point or similar products

    A friend has ordered me some of this as a thank you for me ordering form the uSA using my credit card because she doesnt have one... Dont worry she gave me the cash LOL...

    Because I'm having to dig into my 5 bins of scraps because of finances she thought it wpuld be ideal for me using small pieces... i've never used it....

    I'm nmore of a visual learner than a reader.... Can anyone give me any links to somewhere that has foogpd pictorials on using this product....? Or even explain in easy speak what I do with the stuff?

    mnay thanks

    Pellon Fusible Stabilizer is perfect for crafts and home decor. 1" Quilter's Grid on Point 44" 25yd White- Nonwoven 100% Polyester fusible with 1" printed grid turned at a 45 deg. angle for precision piecing of quilting projects. Simplifies the way quilts are sewn together. Place squares, right side up on top of fusible grid. Iron squares in place. Then, sew quilt together in rows - instead of sets of two. Ideal for watercolor quilts and any design using fabric squares.

    Does that help??

    Use a pressing cloth so that you don't get fusible on your iron.

    I watched a video about that and it looked like a neat way to do it.

    Does this also help with keeping your HST and flying geese from misshaping when trying to stitch on the bias? I would think it would....maybe I'll try some as well.
    Those who are piecemakers will sew seeds.

    The grid I'm familiar with you would have to sew your HST and flying geese together first then use the grid to attach the blocks. But if you geese look like mine it would help you sew them together straight.

    I buy it by the bolt ! I use it all the time in scrap quilting. Love the stuff! One note the fusible grid is not cotton , and will melt/burn if your iron is too hot. But once the project is complete, you can iron/press on the cloth side on the cotton setting to get that good final pressing. I also find it works better with just a touch of steam.
    I do find the on point or 45 degree grid a bit trickier to work with the the regular. For some reason its easier to get off just enough to have sloppy results ( intersections not lining up) My advise buy a bit of the regular , do a small project before the 45 degree.
    Just a note the grid with the blue lines is not fusible, the one with yellow is the fusible one. and if you are working with large squares on the grid and the fabric is light and or thin you will see the grid behind the fabric. So it works well with medium and dark colored fabrics.
