    I am sort of new to this craft and have been doing a lot of reading and experimenting. I enjoy making quilts for my Great Grandchildren so far. I have looked into this paper piecing and tried it..did research and found there is foundation by the yard which is pre printed. Any comments would be helpful...thank you

    I haven't used a fabric foundation, only paper. It is very accurate. I assume you have to machine quilt.

    Thanks for the information...I went on line to Foundation by the yard.. That is where I found the info. It is like paper piecing, but it is already printed. Right now I have tried copy machine on paper and it gives a perfect and I mean perfect block.

    I design my blocks in EQ7, then print them out on regular copy paper, but I have found that using newsprint (the kind that comes in cheap kids' drawing tablets) works best for me when I have small pieces and a lot of paper to remove in small spaces. I use a paper-cutter to get it to 8.5x11 and then run it through the printer. I bought the expensive paper at my LQS a few years ago and didn't see much difference between it and the newsprint.
