    Hi Mikki, welcome to quilting! You'll find lots of uses for freezer paper, especially if you applique. Instead of making templates to trace around, I draw the finished size piece I need on the dull side of the paper, then use a dry hot setting on the iron to bond the paper to the fabric. The freezer paper should last through several ironings until it runs out of "stick", but this will save lots of tracing and looking for the right marking tool.
    I've also used stencils made of freezer paper to mark quilts. Stitch along the outside edge and peel the paper away when you're done...again, no marking lines to remove. I'm sure there are lots more uses people here will come up with, those are just my 2 favorites.

    Freezer paper is great to use in paper piecing. It irons on easily and is easily removed when your pieces are sewn together. The best part is that freezer paper is very inexpensive.

    Hi, I use freezer paper by ironing it on the back of my label. Makes it easier to write on the label. Holds the fabric firm then when I am done just peel it off. Marge

    freezer paper is a great stabilizer for machine applique, too. especially for satin stitch applique. if you iron the whole block to a piece of FP before you machine applique you'll have almost no puckering.

    Freezer paper is a quilters best friend, I use it for all above comments, and I'm a applique quilter, but it is x-cellent for accuracy for repeated pieceing, Ex: Grandmothers Flower Garden,
