    thank heavens you are going to share or else I would have had to come over there and straighten you out. Let me know how it goes I haven't had the nerve to dig in yet. I have a specific picture in mind to try to replicate and so I will be on my own creative devices, am going to try the fuse and stitch method.

    Joking aside DA - The watercolor quilting is spectacular, but you have to have a massive selection of fabrics to get the right affect...I suppose each square is like the pixel on a digital image.....If we could blow an image up extra large, we could all make a massive one using fat quarters lol!!!!!!!!!!

    I have been stashing just for that purpose. I even carried my picture to get the shades right. I do like the idea of fat quarters- they would have to display it in a big hall so people would have to stand way back to get the effect we want. I'll bring my stash you bring yours and we'll meet in an ocean liner halfway.

    Now your talking....I have had a quick search on the net and found this free pattern...seems a more simple way of piecing all the pieces together. I have put it into pdf format for easy downloading :D

    Yep and with my eyes, probably need fat quarters :shock: (thats my eyes after sewing it) . Well I can only try and when you bring me that big piece you promised :lol: I am going to stick it on the wall and go from there placing squares on it till I get some sort of a design. Thought I would try a heart or something simple, I love that one that has been done in the Round Robin its super.

    Not to worry, I love anything artistic, its all a learning curve for me.
    Thanks. By the way Loretta, have you ever had a look at Nancy A Pearson Quilting and applique. Its fab book, but tried it and it is really difficult though.

    Been to the beach today and traced out my next kiddies quilt, this one is for our 4 year old (going on 18). Also want to try watercolour quilting, I have 2 UFOīs at the moment, seems to be a hazzard of quilting.

    Elle- don't worry about having so many projects to do at once... it somehow guarantees you will live a very long life to get them all done. I'm pretty sure I'm going to live to be 758 years old at this rate.

    This is where the Quilt Fuse stuff comes in handy.
    You just arrange the squares where you want them, press, then turn it over and sew!

    Morning Terri, you are up bright an early!!

    The quilt fuse that you use had a grid pattern on it....do you butt the edges of the squares upto the line?...if so how can you use this as a sewing guide as that would surely be the edge so do you stitch 1/4" in from that line?????? :?

    according to the directions, you turn it over and sew the 1/4 inch.

    I'm always up early. Have to get up with Courtney at 5:30am YUCK!

    I just read that when using the fusible quilt grid, if you lightly/quickly iron it down it stays softer, if you want more stiffness for a wall hanging or ?, iron it longer.

    I am on the Everything Quilts newsletter and i went to their site and they have packs of watercolor squares 200 for 17.95. I'm not sure if that is a good price or not but it may be when you figure your time for cutting the squares. (Sorry they didn't have the fat quarters together for our giant quilt for the large display hall) I am thinking about ordering and see what shapes up. http://www.everythingquilts.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWCATS&Category=133 this is where I looked
