    I read 'somewhere' about this paper piecing technique. You app. have to place the patches on the paper, than fold it very precise and sew. It seems to be a fast, eccurate was of sdewing small pieces.

    One of the books about this is Miniatures in Minutes, and part of it can be read in Google Books
    http://books.google.nl/books?id=Rr7q...page&q&f=false

    I wonder if someone here has already sewn this way?

    Yes, I have done this using freezer paper. First, I draw the pattern on the freezer paper and perforate the pattern using an old needle. It makes folding the paper back much easier. To sew ALONG the paper edge, I use the zipper foot and move the needle as close to the edge as possible. Great method!

    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.

    Oh, my! A celebrity in our midst!!!

    Anita, thanks for speaking up. It's kinda surreal to "meet" someone who's been on Simply Quilts. It's how I started piecing things in earnest!

    :D

    Rebecca: It's pure pleasure to be here. I'm "between" books and teaching engagements so lately I have time to post. I do try to limit myself to messages of which I have first-hand knowledge.

    I have two quilts started using paper piecing. It is fun and quick and you can get a couple quilt blocks done in an evening. The points are pointy and it is a very accurate block when completed.
