Papers For Foundation Piecing


  1. Im really enjoying your shows and I have been quilting since 1985 LOL ! It is a refreshing look at these blocks..I remember my first paper foundation quilt was made using an old phone book . It works very well , however It ruined my machine , so Im going to see if my new Janome will take paper without clogging :) Is that a Janome you are using?

  2. mathematical brain not working this morning, could not work out how wide the strips need to be to get all the points meeting accurately

  3. I was also wondering about the strip width. Is it 1.5″? Love your videos, I am new to quilting and your presentation is easy to understand.
