    :-D :-D :-D I have a great tip that I thought of a couple days ago. If you use regular printer paper for foundation piecing and find it a little harder to take it off the block when you are done. Try this.... Get a small bowl or a cup and put a little water in it. Then get a q-tip and dip it in the water and dap some water on the stitches on the paper and it will soften it so it makes it much easir to carefully take off that paper. And it doesn't pull on the threads. This is a great way to test color to see if it runs. Just sew two scraps together as if making a block a light and a dark color and then do the q-tip trick and if the color runs, you will know it right away. Then you will know not to use the running color in your quilt. This trick is great for those little tiny pieces of paper you have to take off. Have a great day, Huggies, Fay
