Ladies are buying cash register (adding machine) tape, comes in a roll, couldn't tell you how many feet are on each roll, but it is a lot. Some are just sewing strips on it using it as a foundation, others are sewing scraps together using it as a foundation. It seems the tape keeps things straight and these can be sewn together. Some have show them here on the board, maybe you can search for them. Try either cash register or adding machine. As I continued looking through recent topics I found this: http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...r-t226393.html I think you will be able to see for yourself.

From what I've seen many don't take the paper off the back but leave it in until it is washed and it dissolves - not isure I like that concept - don't know what, if anything, all that would do to my septic system!

maybe I'm not getting the gist of this - is the tape just to keep your lines straight? Do you rotary cut along the edge of the tape after sewing your scraps into a strip? I'm trying really hard to organize this process in my head....help?

Debbie, whether it's cash register tape, a telephone page, or maybe a triangle cut from a 11 x 8 paper, the idea is that the scraps are small, you sew on the paper and make sure all the paper is covered. By sewing on the paper you know just how big or what size scrape you will need to make your block. ONce the paper template is covered and sewn with scraps you then use it like a whole piece of material and cut your block. Years ago, before my time, many quilts were made with paper templates and the paper left on. It doesn't effect the quilt too much unless your paper is heavy. I would just try to remove as much as I could without pulling on the seams too much
