    I went to pull out the roll of freezer paper to use on the signature quilt I'm working on (per recommendation of a board member - to back the areas that will be signed). Lo and behold - it turned out to be parchment paper. Not sure how that happened - and for the record - it did not stick when ironed on.

    This morning I scooted in to Food Lion to find freezer paper and it is shelved next to the parchment paper. However, I did get a good laugh as there is a picture on the corner of the box advertising it as great for quilt applique work. So I definitely have the right stuff now.

    The parchment paper will move out to the kitchen now.

    This is the mock up of the quilt- last night I sewed the horizontal sashing with cornerstones and two of the borders. Hopefully I can add the other borders tonight so that I can take it to school so that kids can start signing.

    Cheers, K

    Love your colors. It reminds me of the beautiful blue waters we love to snorkel in in Hawaii. Very peaceful and beautiful.

    Parchment paper works great for fusible applique (fusible doesn't stick to it). You may need to move it back into the quilting area some day!

    parchment paper still has it's place in the sewing room- it works great as an inexpensive pressing sheet- protects the iron and other surfaces from fusable.

    Maybe that is why I picked it up. Regardless, it will get used somewhere in the house.
