    Amazing! I love the look of pieced borders, but the thought of spending hours piecing them caused me to shy away from them. Now I know what to do with all those little pieces when I just feel like sewing away! Thanks so much; you should be on the quilt shows and magazine covers--your idea is brilliant! Thanks for sharing it.

    This would be a great way to use up small scraps. Maybe I better rethink what size of scraps need to be saved.

    Thanks!

    What a great idea. Never thot of using them for pantograms.

    What is the purpose of using the paper? I think it's a great idea and I like the wonky part

    Did you actually quilt a camel? can we see it bigger? is it a wall hanging? how clever, are you a native there or just there for a while? do they have quilt shops?

    The paper helps keep things flat and also no problem if some of your scraps are bias pieces..

    What a wonderful idea. I use newspaper for quilt blocks, and it tears off perfect. Never thought of addding machine tape but will sure try it now.
    Thanks

    Old telephone books work well, also. Just imagine all of the different blocks you can create re-using paper goods as foundations!

    Well if adding machine paper will work for this you could use the kids doodle rolls of paper for a larger area.

    Oh, for Heaven's Sake! Who knew! Well, you did, obviously, but i was being rhetorical.

    i tossed rolls of that paper out recently, actually I gave it to Goodwill. Wait! Thats where we can find some!

    i love it when I figure things out. Trust me, being in my head sometimes is a scary place.

    A great way to use my scraps that are shorter.

    Thanks!
