    Okay so now it's my turn to say "wan-hu?" Okay, I understand about the squares, especially now, but I don't understand how to do it with other shapes, in my case, my entire quilt is bias square triangles. so would I just sew up the diagonals too?

    Hi Elisabeth- that is exactly right. There is a quilt company in Montana here that specializes in on point quilts using the fusible interfacing. http://www.crookednickel.com/home.html

    The owner and designer is Lisa Maki and she travels all over the country to quilt shows to show her technique. One of her patterns is-And your point is? :-) :-) So anyway, check out her website, she has some great information that might help answer your question.

    Dina Pappas owns my LQS, Dina's Cozy Cabin. :D Her technique dose work. Even if you miss and don't lay evry square quite straight the finished project looks great.

    I tried the technique on the bib and pocket sections of a of a apron using 1 1/2" squares. I gridded my own light weight interfacing for the project, then machine quilted the finished bib block using preshrunken flannel for the batting. The pocket i quilted without adding the flannel.

    I did find it easier to lay a section the size of my iron the best. My project was small so I laid out all the pieces on the inferfacing. Just after I started ironing the phone rang. While playing with the dog, my nephew bump the ironing board (the iron was on my sewingtable). That was enough for me.

    I have made a small wall hanging using this method and it is beautiful. I don't believe it would be called "cheating". Just another method of putting fabric together. Give it a try. What have you got to loose. granny

    My very first quilt was the Quiltsmart Lonestar. I had no idea what I was doing and it came out beautiful. All the ladies at the quilt store where amazed at how all of my points matched up. I didn't know they were suppose to but Quilt smart made it happen without any effort from me.
    I love there patterns and have made a couple others since the first one. I haven't tackled the watercolor one yet but I think it would be just as much fun as all of the others, let me know if you like your results.
