    I hope I get an answer on this quick!
    I have read somewhere, that you can use vellum paper to print quilting designs on for machine quilting!
    Has anyone done this?
    How well does it work?

    I am wondering because there is a liquidation sale going on today that has scrapbooking stuff and she has tons of vellum paper for sale 12 sheets for $1.00! I thing all of the lighter colors should work!

    I have seen quiltling kits for paper piecing that have had vellum to use for the paper piecing.

    I used vellum when I did fabric painting.

    You could copy a design (backwards) onto the vellum using a "toner" copier then use it as an iron pattern to paint over.

    You could iron it several times from the one copy.

    Vellum worked really good for that (be ware, the toner did not wash out...it was an "outline" that was painted over" so it didn't matter for those projects.

    That is a super low price.

    I have heard of people using the vellum for PPing and can not imagine the cost of it..unless they were simply making a little thing, the vellum I have seen on quilt sites just now is really costly!

    could not imagine doing a Judy Neimeyer or Jacqueline Dejong quilt using vellum! yikeS!!!

    I think using them for the quilting pattern would be good, as you should be able to get a couple of round out of them before you sew them up completely and they fall apart!

    I am going to buy the reg size for the printer and some of the 12" sq ones for making my own designs on! She said if I bought a bunch of it she would cut me a deal....bye for now!

    It has to be lightweight vellum not the stiff kind used in most scrapbooking. If it feel like thin copy paper then it will work great. I bought a ream of it and that will last me probably the rest of my life. LOL. I bought it here:http://www.paperplus.com/productdeta...p?bvn=10016356
