    Not any more than paper piecing does. Frankly, I don't notice a difference of the needle dulling any faster when I PP verses regular sewing.

    My quilt guild is saving small pieces to stuff dog beds for shelters. One of the quilts I am working on has a braid that I seem to be allowing it to get out of hand. I have tried the disappearing 9 patch with it as well. After getting into applique, it seems to be about lots of scraps and I have gotten worse about not throwing anything away! I must find a happy medium!

    I think the "older" paper is easier to tear off. I have some old stationary from a business that a friend gave me that I use. It's just "brittle" enough to tear off real easy.

    Happy Easter to you too!

    I do this all the time. It is great for when you have a few minutes to sew and many scraps. Then when you need it There it is ready to use. Tadah ! Hugs

    This is so cool. Even I could use up my bits and pieces instead of giving them away. Thank you for showing us this one. So very cool!

    This is a wonderful tutorial and I copied and pasted & printed it off. I have lots of scraps that I can use and a supply of the paper rolls. Off to sew. Thanks for sharing your tute with us.
