    thanks Barb, the smaller stitches will really help. i went crazy tearing off paper. even put it under the water in sink. course I first used Blue Paper so you know what happened! that's right the color ran. use white paper and don't iron with printed side toward iron or you will have to clean the iron. don't ask me why i was doing that... :lol:

    stay at home, i iron on any side of the paper, the important thing is not to use STEAM, its the steam that makes the ink run...oh nooo, blue paper, and ran it under water lol, sorry, shouldnt laugh :)

    skeat, i'm with you, i find paper piecing soooo relaxing, i just relax and go into my own little world lol, because im not good at having to cut perfect triangles and stuff, and having to match stuff up, so i just love paper piecing, cus no matter what i do wrong, the square comes out the perfect proper size anyways

    Yes, Barb...we are paper queens!:))I have to smile when you say 'no steam' for again....I am a steam queen!! I haven't had any run yet...maybe it could be the printer...or the fact you didn't wait for your print to dry;))LOL Skeat

    Does anyone know if laser printing makes any difference? I don't have an inkjet printer, mine is a color laser.

    I have an inkjet, but I think you're still fine! Does it use toner rather than ink? I used to work at company that only sold printers and copiers...but I did accounting! Lol* I used to get black ink all over my hands, and they said warm to hot water would remove the ink. So I wonder if ironing over the ink when paper piecing might make it come off on the fabric. I would test it first. :) Let us know your results too! :)

    You can try going to Fon's and Porter site, I think they have a show on paper piecing but I can not remember what series it is in. You can buy the DVD for a very reasonable price. They show every detail you have to know to do there projects. The site is fonsandporter.com

    I have done many paper pieced patterns and truly enjoyed it. I am very fortunate to have a friend that is an award winning quilter and I like you, have to be shown and she is right there to help me.
