    Graph Paper

    Can some one tell me where I can get larger graph paper? All I can find is 8x10 sheets and the graph blocks are small. I saw someone on here have 1/4 inch graph paper and the blocks were larger. Thanks for your help.

    You can print your own. Just google graph/grid.

    if you print them on 8x10 sheets, you can tape them together.
    you might try a school supply store that may have the large ones they set up on an easel

    Here is one supply house that has vellum (thin, tough paper that erases well) sheets in larger sizes. I only noticed that they had 8x8 and 10x10 to the inch grids, but I didn't read the whole thing carefully.

    The 8x8 grids are nice.

    There are other suppliers around, too.

    This is a site where you can download any type graph paper you would want. You can customize the size and shape. You can print 4 to the inch graph paper with large or small boxes. You can download round graph paper. And it is all free!
    Have fun quilting! If it isn't fun, you will miss a lot.

    This is what I use, but it is becoming harder to find. It costs more than regular paper, but the cost equals out because you can erase (use a white eraser for best results). So glad to have an address. Thanks, bearisgray!

    I have looked for and bought mine at Walmart for decades. They are pads that are often called QUAD-RULED when they have 1/4" squares on them. The last one I bought was a pad with dark green cover and a hard cardboard backing from AMPAD company. I think they are much cheaper than buying paper/ink and printing from home.

    If you are looking to purchase, any store that carries drafting supplies would have it in stock. Good Luck on your search.

    Our office supply store carries them. They're about the same size as the desk pads used to protect your office desk.
