Getting a quilting pattern from a bound book
I have a large book of quilting patterns. It is impossible to photo copy the pages because of the binding of the book and I don't want to tear out pages if I don't have to......would like to keep them all together! I have heard there is a way with freezer paper and an iron, that I could get the pattern onto the freezer paper, then adhere my freezer paper to the quilt top, and use it as a guide for quilting. My questions are - 1) has anybody tried this? 2) how hot do you have the iron? 3) which side of the freezer paper do you have against the page of the book with the pattern you are trying to copy?
If anyone has any great ideas other than this for getting the quilting pattern from the book and into a usable form, I'd sure like to hear them.
