    I love this technique. :) The only think I do differently is that I use an old needle in my sewing machine to perforate my paper instead of just scoring it.

    Very cool. This might get me to try paper piecing again (hated it the first time).

    That would be so much better than having to remove paper from the stitching!

    That's the way I do most pp and it is great.........no paper to remove. The only thing I would add is get yourself one of the add-a-quarter rulers (they come in 6 and 12 inch)...........makes pping so much easier.

    I use this method for pping and also use the 6 inch add-a-quarter ruler.

    Great Tutorial! I just forwarded it to all 90 members of our local quilt club. Some newbies have expressed the desire to learn paper piecing and it is always good to learn new and/or better techniques.

    Be careful, freezer paper shrinks when ironed.

    Thanks for sharing this site. I have wanted to try paper piecing, but was having a hard time understanding how it worked. This made everything clear and the pictures helped a lot.
