    A while back someone posted that thy were using adding machine paper as foundation so of course i put everything aside and off i went to buy some paper...well I started sewing, and sewing, and sewing...sheshhhh those rolls are long...lol never realised how much so....anyways i did the whole roll...took me a while....then when i was done i started playing with it....and here is what i came up with...the pics aren`t the best because the quilt is laying down on the floor....the fabric was all from my stash ...but i bought a whole box of rolls...well guess i`ll be good for a long long time!!! LOL I do love it.....now to quilt ...hmm don`t think this one is going to be handquilted...so that means i`ll have to try machine quilting...yikes!!! LOL

    Wow looks great! Does the paper add stability? How wide is the roll? Did you press every seam? Looks like fun!

    Found the tut, guess I should of search first :oops:

    Here it is for anyone else! Thanks for sharing your quilt, very insperational!

    Beautiful! I have started my roll, I think I will use it as a binding to a scrappy quilt.

    hmmmm....thinking here.
    I wonder how crepe paper would work? Thinking it might be able to tear off easier when finished?

    Great idea btw.

    Yikes - it turned out to be a beautiful quilt. Could you just strip piece fabric together and not use the paper? Seems to me this would be easier than taking off all that paper.

    not sure crepe paper would work...it is so flimsy....the paper isn`t hard to remove on this...just will take a while....i used small stitches to piece ....

    well i think this is easier, because the paper guides you along keeping everything straight....i did remove the sides once it was full....it really makes it so ....i usually use pieces of leftover muslin for foundation...but wanted to try this methond and i love it.....won`t be my last... easy to sew...
