    I have never seen a method like this. Thanks for posting this. One question, could you use the same type of paper for both the tracing and stencil? I'm thinking like parchment paper.

    Hello PiecesinMn - No reason why you shouldn't use the same paper for both - it's just that the brown paper I have is stronger than the paper I use for tracing, so it can stand up to all the bunching up and crinkling it has to do when I am doing the machine stitching.

    I haven't a clue what parchment paper is. It sounded like a Miriam joke to me. Different countries, different products, different names... All you American ladies are going to have to experiment and discuss between yourselves! To all my compatriots - Waitrose own brand greaseproof paper!

    Thanks for the clarification. I hope this explanation helps you . . . Parchment paper is paper that is used on the bottom of a cake baking pan or cookie sheet so that the food isn't sticking to the pan when done baking. Freezer paper is paper that is used to wrap meat or whatever for freezing. What's nice about freezer paper is that one side is shiny and it just happens to stick to fabic when you iron it on the fabric shiny side down so it's great for applique or I use it for making stencils for machine quilting. I think both products are manufacted by the Reynolds Company. These are 2 different products. I google greaseproof paper and it stated that it is close or parchment paper. Learning something everyday. Thanks again.

    Thank you Pieces. So you call greaseproof paper parchment, and we do without freezer paper - it only exists here in quilt shops at exorbitant prices.

    I hope you all enjoy trying out this method - post pictures please!

    no joke - we call it parchment - it works good when DH bakes the cherry chocolate scones

    Great pics and Tutorial, Muv ... and thank you for your very kind words to myself and Works4Me! *blush*
    Your method sure seems to simplify and take away some of the intimidation ... and yes very vintage, as I remember many of my Mom's linens having blanket stitch edged appliques ..... including a Dresden Plate bedspread that I still have.

    ITA with the others ... your description sounds like what we buy as Parchment Paper ... that stuff is next thing to indestructable, so would work well as you twist and turn on the machine. Whereas the freezer paper might tear off ... and then painter's tape to the rescue for band-aids!



    All ... we're having fun on the International Patriotic Challenge thread .... and please consider this your invitation to come on over and join all of us and start a patriotic project for yourself!

    Please note ... it's International and we'd really love to see more people from more countries join in with us. There's no project too big or too small. You might consider something serious ... or something "just for fun"!
