    I don't understand (sigh) why are you sewing them onto paper?

    I am sitting here with a table load of scraps that I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them. I knew I shouldn't throw them away, so now I have a new fun project. Thanks. I've also bookmarked to see what you are going to do with them.

    The paper is your foundation...this is a foundation piecing method..it helps keep your fabrics flat and smooth and it doesn't matter if the scraps are bias when doing this also

    WOW.... Didn't know that.... Haven't done much foundation piecing, I guess, but do make a lot of flip and sew projects... How do you work with the paper foundation when you need it? Just tear it off like a stabilizer?

    For some unknown reason, I bought a box of (6) 6" wide, 1000' long thermal paper rolls at GW for $2 and now I know what I can do with them. Great idea!
