    Gale, I presume this is the method where you fold back the foundation paper and stitch 'next' to the line at each section, not tried it, but I have a tute on the laptop about it. It saves time and paper as you can reuse the foundation pattern time and time again, and big bonus no ripping out at the end :D

    Is that the same as English paper piecing?

    not really the same. EPP you cut shapes like hexagons or triangles and fold your fabric around the edges then baste in place, then whip stitch the sides together without catching the paper that's then removed. PP is where your sew your fabric on to the paper at intersecting lines to secure your seams then tear out all the small pieces.

    Loretta I haven't heard of paper being left, but you quite often hear of using a fine muslim or stablizer as a foundation fabric that is left in.... :D

    I have taken many classes from Quilt University. I haven't taken this specific one, but I was thinking about it. I have tried something similar to this method I think and I really preferred it to the other way. I hate trying to get all those bits of paper out of the back! grrrr. I have never been disappointed in any class I have taken from QU.

    Sandpat:
    I found the BEST paper for paperpiecing...we have some stocks and bonds and every quarter we get a BOOK of stock notes and stuff that we don't know anything about, we let our broker do all our investing. We used to throw away these 300 page books of stock quotes until one day I wanted to try paper piecing and used a page from this book. The paper is very, very thin, almost like single ply tt paper but it's crisp. It works beautifully and tears away so simply and easily that it doesn't mess up your stitching. Stop in at an Edward E. Jones office and see if they have one of these books you can have if you don't get them yourself. Our books come from Putnum stocks company.

    It's just paper piecing, I think. Some people leave the paper in a wall hanging if it's not going to get any washing. I've seen antique blocks that still had the paper attached, maybe it just hadn't been removed yet?
