    Picture Piecing with Freezer Paper

    Cynthia England is a talented quilter who presented her technique at our guild's quilt show last year, and I finally got around to studying her website only a few months ago. Now I've noticed that she has very detailed demonstrations of the technique on youtube videos! http://englanddesign.com/content/video-demos-0 I know her work has been mentioned on this board before, but I had not noticed mention of the videos, which are quite helpful.

    Check out the rest of her site as well as the videos. There's a lot to see, and her designs are beautiful works of art! http://englanddesign.com

    Thanks for the links. I have 3 of her patterns and I've been reading them and trying to grasp her method vs. regular paperpiecing. I was really intimidated by those patterns but think I'm ready to tackle one after watching the videos.

    Thanks so much for that link! A whole new quilting world to explore! I enjoy paper piecing very much, but don't like having to remove the paper after sewing. This looks like a problem wonderfully solved!

    Thanks for posting this. I've seen her work on The Quilt Show, but didn't totally understand her method. I like this method for producing detailed landscapes or other pictures.

    Her quilts are so pretty. At first I was wondering of the advantage of doing it this way, it seems like more work, but I totally forgot about time-consuming paper removal. I'm going to try this. Thanks for sharing!

    Nancy, I got freezer paper on a roll at Walmart. It's in the same section as aluminum foil, plastic wrap, etc. Some LQS's sell it in sheets but it's much more expensive than the roll from Walmart.

    It's usually available in supermarkets. It's white paper that has waxy side that adheres to fabric when you iron it down.

    I just bought one of her patterns called Garden Treasures will be my winter project. I like the way craftsy did bom last year where she sewed without thread and folded the paper back. I think I will do mine this way. The link is good instruction though.Thanks for posting. Gale

    I didn't join Craftsy until recently. I just got last year's BOM and watched the demo of that technique, which I think is brilliant for foundation paper piecing, but the Cynthia England designs are not quite the same thing. I can't picture how it would work. Her designs are full of tiny pieces. I hope you'll update us if you try it.

    Anyway, thanks for calling my attention to this perforation method. I'm going to give it a try, too.

    Someone bought me one of her patterns at Paducah in 2012. I haven't taken it out yet. I believe it would be faster to just paper piece it - but then I don't sew through my paper when I paper piece so it's much quicker to piece and very little removing of paper - if any.
    She has some nice designs and I enjoyed watching her video Thanks for the link!
