    Bookmarked - the gridded crosshairs will be great for enlarging applique patterns.

    Yup. That's the site I've used. It's great because you can adjust the size of the graph. For the hexagon I printed out 1/4 inch to design on and then printed larger ones to use for English paper piecing. Cheaper than buying it at the store!!

    Sondray...I just use it to plot out my design...kind of like a design wall on paper. Colored pencils and graph paper; use the grids to make your "blocks" then color them in to check on color scheme and placement.

    I also use it to plot out a design. Sometimes when you get a creative block with the fabric colored pencils can help. Or you see a design in a book, the graph paper can help you make it "you". It's a way to make "on paper" the quilts we will never make in "fabric"!

    I am using it to try and do a landscape quilt. I think you can also use it paper piecing but I haven't been brave enough to try that.
