    Yes, it did at my Home Depot. If they don't have that size , they may cut it for you.

      Thanks, maybe it's a standard size. It looks fun!

        It is fun! You can really play around with designs and the plexiglass is large enough that you can get a feel for how the quilting will look.

          Just got back from Lowe's. It was less than $10 for a 18" X 24" sheet of 1/8" Plexiglass. It was covered on by sides by plastic to prevent scratches. We taped the edges and I have already tried it out. My red and black dry erase markers work but for some reason the blue does not. Erases just fine.

              I tore my plastic off. I think it is just on there to protect it until it is sold.

                    I have visited the Tamarack Shack web site before. At that time, she had a lot of quilts laid out on the frozen lake (a space had been cleared of the snow) for photographing. A very beautiful setting. She does lovely LA quilting. I like the idea of the plexiglass for quilting ideas. I always make a sample block or two of a quilt & practice on a sandwich. I like to use the white board to practice FMQ ideas & patterns. Thanks for sharing the tip.

                      Bec, what a great tip! I'm nowhere near there yet, just learning the basics of FMQ. A fantastic and inexpensive idea. Thanks so much.

                        Yes, thanks so much, what a clever idea. You can see what it is going to look like and if you are going to like it.

                          Oh my gosh! I just finished a top with the identical pattern and same color combo. When I saw this photo I told my husband "somebody made my quilt!" Mine is just to the putting on the border stage. What a neat coincidence this early in my day and a great tip.
