For years I was a very frustrated ppiecer using reg printer paper, so I though I would give this tissue paper a try, I thought it would ruin my printer, well guess what it works great.
I can see a big quilt in the future! :wink:
If you haven`t tried it do!

How do you run tissue paper through your printer? Is this special tissue that you find at Joann's or Hancock's?

The tissue I used was given to me by a teacher it is thin but does not rip.
As to what I`m working on I just did 2 hearts as a test.

My LQS is doing a paper pieced medallion quilt for their BOM starting in May. I'm really looking forward to learning this method

I love PP too, it takes a time to get into but once you get it your hooked.

Thanks for the tip on tissue paper, would never have thought of that.

I used regular printer paper to do a test of a mariner's star block. Then I got the paper piecing paper from Carol Doak and what a difference. It's thin paper, not quite tissue, but it holds up well and goes through the printer just fine. The regular paper one is so thick and bulky by comparison that I think I will do that first test one over on the thin stuff.

I also got some "paper" that feels and looks more like an interfacing at JoAnn's. I like it much better than the thin stuff, it has a stiffness to it, but it is expensive.
