Came across this today and think I will have to try this idea!!
My guild did a workshop to make a wallhanging using this method. Personally, I thought it was more work - but it did give very precise seam-matching. It was fun to do and I always like to learn new methods so I can choose the one I like best. You would definitely not want to hand quilt the quilt!
I used that method when I made this little quilt. I thought it would be easier with the little pieces, but it was still harder than I expected it to be! (and make sure you don't have the fan on in the sewing room till AFTER you've fused the pieces down
I've never seen that method before...looks pretty neat & if you make one & don't have a home for the little doll quilt you can join our "Get Your Ms Claus On" project & send it on for the 2013 children.
We live in the home of the free...because of the brave.
I made this "Mondo Bag" using that same technique. It was fun and different but maybe no faster than piecing.
Quiltsmart sells the preprinted interfacing and instructions.
I made a trip around the world quilt with preprinted interfacing that is just for this method. Joann's used to carry it, don't know if they still do or not. Its pretty nifty way.
I have bunches of the square imprinted fabric. Was what was made for landscape quilts. Never got into that but I still have the fabric. The thing I didn't like was to have to make a cut all the intersections. Guess the trimming of the rows takes care of that... Chris
If you read last comment don't think it would be good for a doll quilt if it is used by a child.
BLESSED WITH THE BEST !!!!
I tried making a postage stamp quilt (basically this method), it was ok but got very tiresome clipping the intersections. Perhaps, as cksvet sez, doing a skinny trim might make it a better method.
Gee, I wonder where that Sunflower got to?????
