    I did not use anymore needles than usual. The telephone paper is very easy to go through. I use 10 stitches per inch and it tears so easily that some times it tears off when pinning another strip on.

    And, the older the phone book pages, the easier to sew strips, or to remove when it is finished. Newer books have stronger pages. piecefully, the old one

    Me too. The first one I did umpty years ago, I used left over typing copy paper. What a great way to recycle that old phone book.

    Love the idea of using old phone book pages! Great tutorial. I've been meaning to do a project like this with all my saved scraps. You have motivated me!

    I've made a quilt using this design but it was on muslin squares. Didn't have to take the foundation off of that and it added a layer of "batt". Can also use spent dryer sheets for this, too, and not have to remove. There was someone who posted a Grandmother's Fan yesterday and I meant to suggest using spent dryer sheets as a 'facing' for those to help turn the edge under. Makes it very easy to turn uniformly. (Spent dryer sheets are the ones that have been used until they aren't fulfilling their intended use.)
