Occasionally you'll even see 1" squares, but I'd hate to try to make that one lay flat. BTY, I found a nice lady from ebay who also sells on her own website, some of the fusible grid cheaply:
    Contact: Lisa Meyer 478-318-5860, 126 Alexandria Dr. Macon, GA. 31210. On ebay she is "lisameyer36".
    Thanks Cabinfever, I'll check that out as I'll need that grid paper to get my project underway. I won't start it until the Summer, but need to get things lined up now.
    Thanks again,
    Blessings,

    No it's not the same one; however, that's a pretty cool site! The concept seems about the same. Thanks for the link, I'll play around with that one as well.

    Yes to all those who said Tammie Bowser. I am not using her software at the moment, but do have one of her books fo sale. It really works! All the time you are putting your fabrics together, you think it will not turn out. But, once pieced and quilted, it is amazing. She has a blog you can sign up for also.

    I came across this site as I was surfing today. It's for a free software download called Quilt Assist. http://www.cosman.nl/software_en.html here's the software description
    "QuiltAssistant is free design-software that can help you to turn your photos into quilts. Rather than the traditional approach of breaking up the photo into little squares ('watercolor style') it allows you to divide the photo into pieces of arbitrary size and shape.
    On completing your design, you can print templates including seam allowances.
    A picture is worth a thousand words:"

    I haven't downloaded yet as my computer is being stupid arrrg, but hope to download soon

    I also met her there and thought it was a fantastic program. I talked with her for quite awhile and she really sounded like she had incorporated so much of her knowledge into the program!

    Thanks for the info! I'd be careful about 'free downloads'. It seems that they had issues with it and had to de-bug the program per their statement towards the bottom of the page. The program itself seems cool!
