    Thank you so much for answering and I'm so happy I asked.
    I wondered if it really was a accurate and 'easy' method.
    I found your books, but couldn't get a 'taste' of them on Google books.
    But I watched the link of CT now and I understand that method a lot better. I even do have vellum from my card-making-days ;-).
    Of course I tried the video's ( thought I might be lucky LOL) but no!.

    I am working with thangles, and love that, so I decided
    I'm going to my LQS this week, I'll ask if she has the books and otherwise will buy it online .
    I noticed you have written 3 books, I think I 'need' the 2 about blocks ;-).
    Once again thank you for taking the time to answer, I'm glad you did.

    Dya



    I sew this way often and can answer your question. The truth is I invented this method. I made a video detailing it in 2003 with HGTV for the Simply Quilts show.

    Unfortunately, the segments can only be seen on U.S. computers so you are unable to see them in the Netherlands.

    However, the series of 14 pictures here

    should give you an understanding the process. I hope this helps.

    Thank you, great tip too.

To sew ALONG the paper edge, I use the zipper foot and move the needle as close to the edge as possible. Great method!

    You still have to rip out the paper when you are done right? I know that sounds silly but I am planning on a few paper pieced projects in the upcoming months and I'm thinking of going freezer paper where you fold and sew along the folded line so you don't actually sew through the paper at all.

    What an honor to pseudo meet you! I adore paper piecing and can't seem to get enough. Thank you for paving the way for those that just don't understand the concept. I always try to encourage those who need a bit of a nudge in that area. I hope to read more of your posts here. I have a few ideas rattling through my mind, but haven't taken the time to put them down on paper yet. Again, thanks for all you do to provide accurate instructions for us all.
