Yes you can use the papers again, I did alot of my big sampler quilt blocks by this method, when you whip stitch them together, you should be only catching the edge of the two fabrics together and not the papers, and if you tack with minimal stitching, paying more attention to corners etc., you can get them out fairly easily :D

A little tip, on any piece that will eventually form your outside edge, make sure you leave additional fabric, then you can square up your block once all papers are removed. The internal seam allowances aren't as important as the paper is your actual guide, so stress to cut out the paper as accurately as possible :D

I LOVE this technique :D
