    Wow is this a neat tecneque. No paper to rip out.Hard to explain but if you get a chance take a class.
    You fold the paper on the lines and leave 1/4 and sew against the fold.

    Very cool. That would be fun way to do it, taking the paper out is the only part that I don't like!
    :D

    This is the same technique as freezer paper PP. I love not ripping and the shiny coating on the freezer paper, when ironed to the fabric helps to stabilize it and hold it for you while piecing. It is a faboo technique. Judy Mathieson (sp) who specializes in Mariner's compass quilts gives very good directions for doing it in her book.

    Forgot to say thereis special paper that the wax is thicker and doesn`t gum it your printer.
    She already had our patterns printed but I`ve ordered some.
    Will get it at our next guid meeting so will let you know the brand.
    I think it was about 10 canadian for I think 30 sheets.Any pattern can be adapted.Your suppose to be able to use your pattern pices over and over but my first one I couldn`t as I sewd a little on the paper.

    I love this crane. My son loves to fold the paper ones. I'll have to figure this one out so I can make him a special quilt. Thank you for sharing.

    Yes with freezer paper you can use the pattern pieces several times. The MC I made I was able to use them about 8 times before they quit sticking to the fabric. I just buy freezer paper at the grocery store and make my pattern pieces by taking my traditional paper pattern (photocopy) and several layers of freezer paper. I stack them up, shiny side up with paper on top. Hit the stack a couple of places with the tip of my iron. This sticks them all together. Then I take the pile to my sewing machine and sew them with no thread in the needle. I then mark my freezer paper pieces with the numbering order and also like to put a note for which fabric I am putting on that piece. Works great.

    I think that must be where I got it, cause I have it printed out downstairs in my notebook. I did a small wall hanging for my mom with irises on it using this method. (No I don't have a pic, darn it, I'm just learning to use a digital camera!)

    The teacher said the freezer paper ypu buy in the grocery store will eventualy gum up your printer. The ones from the qyuilt store won`t.
    Teacher saw a quilt made with 80 birds. She got to 30 and sais enough on to other things and it is now a wall hanging which I din`t see as shr din`t feel like taking it down. Maybe will show it at a guild meeting or our show in the spring.
    Need to remember camera for our guild meet.

    If gumming up the printer is an issue, you could iron a 1/4" section on the top of the freezer paper to a piece of copy paper and run them through your printer together :wink:

    That does sound interesting! I would also love to take a class. I wonder if anyone will offer an online class of this technique or if there is a book or online tutorial or something. Huntsville stores don't seem to keep up with the trends sad to say...

    Judy Mathieson has very good step by step instructions for this method in her Mariner's Compass book, this is how I learned the technique. Just do a Google search for Judy Mathieson and you will get lots of hits. Here is one I got for Hancocks of Peducah and this is the right book. http://www.hancocks-paducah.com/Item--i-CT-10406
