    Another use for adding machine paper is to use it to measure the width and length of your quilt top and then cut the borders using the paper as a ruler.
    Got fabric?

    I found a couple of rolls of fax paper at SA for a buck. It's about the same thickness as the adding machine tape, but it's 8.5" wide. I tried a small sample and it tears off the stitching well. I was going to do some crumb blocks...

    If I remember right, the paper tape for measuring borders was Holice's idea.
    Got fabric?
