    Ladies I hope this tut will be of some help to you all, this is my first tutso bear with me.
    You require three layers ,backing of your choice, batting, and muslin or solid fabric of you choice .Layer one on top of the other, I used basting glue to put mine together,but, you can put yours together what ever way you may wish [pin or baste] I am lazy.
    1 charm pack cut in quarters making 196 sqs or 2 1/2" I found pinking the edges was much better you won't have too many strings to cut off .Draw grid 3" apart horizontally and vertically.
    before gluing or pinning the sq's down place on muslin to see how you want them, making sure it is to your satisfaction. You will have lines from marking you grid place sq's on 3" lines . When placing sq"s they should be 1/2" between each sq. This is not applique. Do not turn under. After you have put binding on you have to wash.

    Hope you can understand my inst. if you don't please let me know. Good luck all Noella

    May we see a picture of yours? Does this have sashing? How are the small squares held in place? Do the lines show?

    No there is NO SASHING sq's are placed individually on the muslin, so in a sense you will have 4 layers

    1st layer 2 1/2'' sq's
    2nd layer muslin
    3 rd layer batting
    4th layer backing
    hope I am clear now.

    What is the measurment of the 3 layers before you start to do the 3 inch grid work? The quilt is beautiful. Thanks for your help.

    what kind -size of stitching did you use? In the first photo --when the back part was shown there are strips but yet I expected from your tutorial to see squares on the back.
    what am I missing ? Oh, but love the quilt .

    Very nice! I see this as a way to use up my scraps and I guess there are kink of scrappy edges around the squares since you say don't turn under.
    Thanks for sharing.
