haven't found the tute i saw recently that used freezer paper and no basting. but am posting here a set of links that i really enjoy. the blogs are fun to wander through after you have perused the epp info. i don't save videos because they take too long to load...forever on my ipad, and almost forever on my all tutes i enjoy are photo & word. i can also follow them more easily i find, w ipad especially. ...i just prop it up and use it like a book and follow the illustrated notes.

this is from my notepad...

bonnie hunter epp, basting through fabric only - not thru the templates.

one w better pics...and good written description
cruisin' the net looking for a tute on double disappearing 9-patch block. so, of course! i find a tute on sewing hexies the way i do it. it is such a quick and easy way of doing them and no stitches show. my attemps to describe the method are sooooo insufficient. check out how well this blogging stitcher documented w photo and word. a most excellent tutorial in the use of the ladder stitch, which she says, she uses for many different applications where she doesn't want the stitches to show, as do i.

Guess you found this double disappearing 9 on this site:   

Love this.  I want to try this with a bunch of charm squares that i have...ohhhhh so many projects!  Where are my elves?!

yes, as a matter of fact heeheeheee! i found this blog when researching how to make a d9p last year. love this site, in fact i have had it open here on my ipad for couple weeks. i was looking for how to on something and ..heck of there is somethin' i wanna know...she has a tute, a blog or a link to where i find my answers :)). what can i say...the site is awsome! lol

just on my way up to do desk work ..YUCK!! but the bills have to be paid. when done, if boss not home yet was going to crank up the pc & post a couple pics. i did d9p's for grdaughters quilts for christmas. but the other day i read about a double disappearing nine patch ... ?? did image search. brought me back to the image you posted there. i want to do that too. i did sort of a controled scrappy for the girls quilts. but i like this very controlled color and i love! her wavy quilting. had seen others using it on quilts they posted on-line. i did it on the girls quilts and sid around all the little blocks and strips. the adults loved it. the girls just loved their soft fuzzy quilts w all the bright colors. i used novelty fleece for backing. similar to minky.
Hi. I just discovered this group and joined. I read about using the ladder stitch and watched the tutorial. Thank you so much for posting it. I have only worked with hexagons and diamonds so far but want to get brave and try new stuff.

an OMG!! antique hexi quilt extensively photographed & shared on this blog site. scroll down page past the incredible machine applique of tiny flowers to her hexi post.. quilt made in 1800's.

Here's a basic tutorial:

Any similarity to the author duly noted. ;-)

read this last weekend w the arrival of latest issue of quilt views. said author did wonderful job on this article :)) well illustrated too. but i still thread baste, no glue, tried it on some tiny applique and tiny piecing! i like the slow & enjoyable thread basting method. lets me sit & relax longer :))
