    I want to use Freezer paper piecing on a new pattern. I need 33 copies of the design (see below) but I can't seem to get the FP to feed thru the ink-jet printer and I REALLY don't want to copy it by hand!

    OK tried ironing just a narrow strip of the top of a slightly smaller sheet of FP to a normal piece of paper and it went thru just fine...so far! 32 more to go!

    If there are other ways I'm a good learner!

    for that many copies the $8 for a package of 8 1/2 x 11 would be worth it to me.
    Which FP are you using?

    I didn't know you could get freezer paper like that! I'm cutting from a roll of Reynold from the grocery store! Would an office supply store have it or do you need to order it? I'd be glad to pay for it!

    Staple your pattern to about 10 or 12 sheets, then using an old needle and no thread, sew it on your machine. That is all you will need, since you are not going to destroy the pattern when you remove it from the block.

    This is how I always do it. Have fun!

    I buy Carol Doaks foudation paper and it goes thru my printer great. Cost less than $10. at local quilt shop.
    Forgot to say there is 100 sheets in a pkg

    Carol Doaks didn't go through my machine very good... I have an HP Officejet 6500. It went very very slowly and after a short while my pattern size was off with each page it printed. I don't' know if it's that particular printer that sensed that it was different paper or what. Just be careful and make sure it's printing the correct size.

    I have been making the same paper peiced quilt (called Pickle dish) and I used the 8.5 X 11 sheets of foundation paper. It goes thru my printer fine. I by it at Joann's using a coupon. It is a little stiff and feeds thru smoothly.

    Does that paper "iron on" like the freezer paper? Sounds like a good deal! While I've bee gathering all of your info, I've printed out about 16 of the 33 with my cumbersome method, but will definitely get some that fits my printer next time!

    This is my first attempt at doing "points", curved seams and paper piecing! Nothing like starting easy! From Quilter's World this month.

    Very pretty, good luck, do try the perforation method. I have used it to make Mariner's compass and others.
