    Pellon Grid paper update- Finished top

    Attached is a pic of the finished top (not yet quilted) that I was complaining about when I was using the Pellon Grid paper. I really had problems with the fabric sticking to the paper and had to pin most of the sashing to keep it in place. What a pain!!!! That said- I really like the finished top. Don't look too close or you will see the miss shaped corner stones and the uneven sashing but I like the over all look of the top. Good thing it is for me! The thought crossed my mind to make another one but then I slapped myself.

    I love your colors and your quilt. Very nice.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Pretty quilt. Sorry you had so much trouble with the pellon grid paper,it does'nt show. looks great. Did you learn any tricks while using the grid paper? My quilting group is going to do a project using it. Good to know what ot look out for.

    It's lovely. If you don't tell people about the mistakes, they won't look for them. What mistakes?

    Beautiful quilt. I certainly didn't see anything wrong with it. (P.S. I'm sure it would look really good in my room - just saying)

    "pellon Quilters Grid paper on point "821" is similiar to Pellon iron- on interfacing but it has 1' squares like graph paper. It allows you to make quilts on point. Easily???? I cut 5" squares placed them on the paper in the squares and left 2" between each square for sashing. Heat is then applied to fabric on paper and fabric is supposed to stick to paper. You then fold fabric/paper right sides together and stitch 1/4" seams. The paper is not removed but it does not make the top too heavy. Having the squares printed on th4e paper made laying out the blocks and putting in the sashing easy. My problem was that alot of the fabric did not "stick" like it should have and kept coming up so that I had to pin fabric making it very hard to sew. I even called Pellon and they told me how to bond it but I still had problems. Maybe I had bad paper or perhaps it was the finish on the fabric. Don't know. I was very frustrated but I finished the top and really like it. Tricks? don't have any. If you try using the paper and have good luck let me know your tricks. Pattern was "And you point is" by Lisa Maki for "Crooked Nickle Quilt Designs". I made another quilt using this pattern/techniques and had the same problem. Good luck!!!!!!!!

    Very pretty. Didn't see anything wonky at all. I haven't tried the Pellon yet, though I have some. I thought the whole point to the Pellon grid was to make it easier

    I bought mine at JoANNS and it was not that expensive with coupon. I bought 10 yards and I think it was about 2.5/yd with coupon.
