Grid Guides

4 Grids Per Pack
Available in two sizes: 1" or 1 1/4"

The Grid Guide is an essential tool for making a Quilted Photo. It is a printed grid that is used along with fusible interfacing to position the fabric squares in the correct order. Tape them together to form a bigger grid with less erasing.

The 1 1/4" grid guide is the size square recommended for the technique in the book Simply Amazing Quilted Photography. 1" and 3/4" is used with designs from More Amazing Quilted Photography.

Student Comments:

Thank you for sending me the number grid and extra tricut fusible so promptly. I stayed up until 3 am working on the quilt. Last night I finally finished it and at first, thought it didn't work. Then I tacked it on the wall and backed up and just said, "Oh my gosh" I couldn't believe it turned out. What fun!...
Nancy Kiernan

Hi, I'd like to tell you how glad I am that I saw you on Simply Quilts. I was so impressed and immediately had the idea to make a Mosaic Quilt of my daughter and her son. It was also a healing process for me because the baby in the picture, Andrew, my grandson, passed away in June 2004 at the age of 2...Thank you so much for sharing your technique.
Karen Thomspon

Hi Tammie, I wanted to share my first quilt with you. I have been thinking about making a quilt for several years, but didn't feel I had the time. When I saw you on Sewing with Nancy, I immediately looked for your website as I knew this process would be relatively quick. I loved pressing the pieces on a seeing the pattern come to life. Thanks for your software and your quilting process....
Regards, Shari Sands
Thank you so much. I am almost finished with my first quilt! It is of my grandson and the results are incredible. I followed your instructions and arranged the fabrics according to value. From then I had to go in faith because some of the fabrics looked the same to me. Up until now, quilting had never appealed to me...But this is totally different. This is art. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.
Victoria Bledsoe
Dear Tammie, I lost my son in 1992 and have been seeking a new way to keep him near even more than I already do with photographs. Your wonderful gift has given me something very precious that I can share with other family members. I'll be making one for my daughter too. This is such a precious gift! Thank you for sharing your great ideas. You must be a wonderful mother, as just listening to you speak about your daughter brings that feeling of warmth and tenderness. May God bless you in your life and family.
