    After quilting for 15 years I am now looking into labeling my quilts.
    My question, is parchment paper same as freezer paper. I know I can print labels but I may want to make my own.
    I have parchment that I use for baking.
    Everywhere I read they say freezer paper to stabilize the fabric.

    Freezer paper has a plastic coating on the back. That is the side you iron onto the back of your fabric :wink:
    You can usually find it close to the parchment paper in the store :D:D:D

    parchment paper will not adhere to fabric to stabilize it.
