First of Three

I have become somewhat enamoured of the fusible grid for quilting we sell.  It seems not too many people know about it, so I am doing three projects for Christmas to promote it.  If it can make even a moderate beginner like me enjoy the process and be successful, then anyone can get a boost from it.  Of course, if you are a fabulous expert quilter who can make seams match in your sleep, there is nothing to see here, move along. 

For the rest of us, you just figure out how you want it to look, cut a zillion 2" squares, fuse them down, stitch 1/4" seams, add a border, and Hey Presto!  A perfectly aligned table topper in a day.  Or two, if you don't work on it all day.  In fact, cutting the squares took longer than sewing it did, and that only took an afternoon.  This is the beautiful "Sentimental" collection by Moda, with a little of their "Merry Medley" thrown in too.  I love both of the collections, and will do more with them.
