    Thank you so much for posting the site.
    A friend was trying to explain this method to me yesterday and I could not envision it at all.
    I see it perfectly now thanks to you.

    Wow! I think I'll try this. I really enjoy pp anyway. This looks like it would just as much fun but no paper to rip out. Can't wait!!

    Peggy Martin's Quick-Strip Paper Piecing technique totally eliminates the need for tedious precision cutting as well as the confusing upside-down stitching required with traditional foundation paper piecing.
    This is not paperless paper piecing, but is a great class if one wants to try paper piecing. I'm most of the way thru it and it is worth the money!

    Here's another link to a well known quilter who employs this method.

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    After watching the "twiddletails" method, thanks, but no thanks, I will cheerfully tear off the paper.

    I'm not a paper piecer. But, my MIL used to use dryer sheets. She would sew on the first piece. Then she would sew the next piece on top of it face down, then flip over. Then sew on the next piece. Hope this helps.
    Be the best that you can be at everything you do.
