    Remember that this is for ink jet printers only. The heat of a laser jet will make the paper adhere to the printer drum and ruin your printer.

    I buy it from here. Have had NO issues with my printer either. It works out to be about $40 for 200 sheets. I will NEVER cut down freezer paper again.

    A lot cheaper is just to use a bit of tape to put the FP on a piece of regular printer paper. Prints just fine!! Another QB member suggested just ironing the top 1" of the FP onto the reg. paper and putting through the printer. So much cheaper! You can then copy or print the pattern right onto it.

    Does this work in a laser printer?

    No! do not put freezer paper in a laser printer. It will cause a lot of damage. It's not worth taking a chance. It's easy to print on freezer paper using all the tips listed but it's easier to buy them all ready cut and printer ready.

    I have been just trying to find a roll of freezer paper locally and no luck so far. Can it only be found online if you aren't in a big hunting area? I've looked in the grocery store and Walmart (not a Super Walmart just a regular smaller one). I live in the Clearwater/St. Pete area of Florida. Thanks for any info.

    My Walmart has it in the area where all the paper plates and rolls of storage wraps are.

    To make unique quilt labels or turn photos into instant quilts...found the technique on the board and taught my niece how to do it - she's a beginning quilter. She had an English project on Shakespeare - the teacher said they could use any media the students wanted and she wanted to make a quilt using photos of Romeo and Juliet.

    It worked, she got an A on the project, and I have to say it turned out really well. Unfortunately, the inkjet colors have worn off after a series of washings (guess she didn't set the colors well with the iron after printing), but it got the job done!

    I've been using it to help me with cutting out the odd sizes and shapes of the pieces for Dear Jane quilt blocks. You can either trace the shapes or print directly on the paper, iron it onto the fabric, and cut fabric and paper together.

    It can also be used for paper piecing.

    Print applique patterns on freezer paper....then iron on fabric, the 'wax coating' on the freezer paper will 'stick' to the fabric, making it so much easier to cut out the pattern.

    Dotty, I cut my own from the roll. it's far more economical. Fuse the fabric to the paper, then cut to size with the rotary cutter. I've never had a problem doing this and have done it this way literally for decades.
