There seems to be a lot going on here and while I would like to participate it seems a little overwhelming and no guidance that I can find that gives an overview each area.Do I ask my questions in…Continue
"Here is my shot at explaining freezer paper piecing vs regular paper piecing.
When you add the next piece using FP you do everything the same, except you sew right next to the folded back paper instead of opening the paper and sewing on the line.…"
"I am not picturing this technique in my head. Do you print out individuals pieces instead of the entire block/section that is pieced? How is that paper piecing? I like the idea of freezer paper as it stabilizes the fabric, but I…"
"I have used regular printing paper and Carol Doak's paper. I have had great success with both, though Carol's is a tad easier. If you shorten your stitch length then the paper should remove easily. I haven't tried freezer paper.
"You have some awesome quilts.
I haven't started a blog yet, as I have one outside of this site. I'll get the hang of it I am sure.
How is this group different from the Minitures, doll quilts, small quilts Group? "
"Thank you. They are gifts for my boss who is having a birthday and she is also a quilter. Is there a place to post pictures that are specific to this group, so we can view all the miniatures we all have done. I am still learning my way around…"
"I have never used her patterns but I do have her paper, which is very helpful to use as it tears easily and it will go through your printer. I first learned how to paper piece with a kit. A project I am working on now, I used EQ7 to design my quilt…"
"I am not sure what size constitutes a miniature, but I would guess anything smaller than 24x 24. What does everyone else think?

Here is my shot at explaining freezer paper piecing vs regular paper piecing.
When you add the next piece using FP you do everything the same, except you sew right next to the folded back paper instead of opening the paper and sewing on the line. Then you open the fabric and the paper and press the fabric to the paper, fold on the next line and trim, line up the next piece and sew and repeat. When you are done with the block or section you just peel off the FP and on to the next. I usually make 2 or 3 copies of the 'block/section' and do each piece at the same time. Hope this helps???
