    Question sticky grid

    Does anyone know where to buy sticky grid paper? You put 2-3" squares on it to form pattern then you sew it to make your quilt. Thanks for your help. Barbara

    I think you are thinking of a fusible product with a grid printed on it. I have used it to make a watercolor quilt wallhanging (the top is all squares, all the same size). You can buy it at JoAnn's. You need to lay your squares down in the order you want them, then use your iron to fuse them in place, bit by bit. Once that's done, you simply fold the top on a line, rst, and stitch the seam. Then fold on the next line and stitch that seam. Once you have all the seams sewn in one direction, you have to snip the seam allowances in all those intersections so you are able to repeat the folding/seaming in the opposite direction. Does this sound like what you had in mind?

    I didn't know there was a product like this, but I have seen it done with iron-on interfacing. You can tape it over a grid, such as a cutting mat. Someone here will know where to get the product you are looking for.

    Justabitcrazy is correct -- Joanne's has it but so do some LQS. Nancy's Notions has it here http://www.nancysnotions.com/product...by+the+yard.do . This has been used to make the water color quilts, wreaths and other patterns (very popular a few years ago). Adds some weight to the quilt, but the result is really nice.

    I have seen both straight and on point grids depending on what you want.

    i believe this is the technique being referred to using fusible interfacing with a grid pattern.
