Oh Boy! Thanks Ruth for checking into that. I was kinda of considering starting late again but after getting so far behind this year, I didn't want to do that. But if we could get Alex' fabric early, I would be very, very happy to get some! :D

Hi Lynn: would you mind explaining a little about Judy Mathison's method, as to how this is done. Heidi

Marge,
I do foundation piecing by hand. I cut muslin 8.5 x 11 and iron it onto freezer paper. Then I print the foundations onto the muslin using my laser printer. I use a running stitch to sew the pieces on and stab and stitch the pieces together so that I go through the lines on both pieces. I always had problems with sewing through the line on the back when I did it by machine. Both the stained glass quilt and the pinwheel quilt on my profile were made this way.

Frances, thank you for the instruction. This sounds like a method that would be good for hand piecing. I'm going to give this a try.

Heather, Ricky's Stable Stuff would work great for the paper piecing foundations, and it easily runs through your printer! I'm glad to see lots of techniques being tried!

I leave Ricky's foundation paper IN my machine applique for the Sue Garman BOM on my profile. I use the Sharon Schamber method of glue turned under edges and invisible machine applique. If you soak the block for about 3 hours after applique, the paper gets very soft. Or you can just wait until you wash the quilt when all done.

I personally don't do anything that isn't going to be washed i.e. wall hangings, so don't know about display stuff.

What do you all think about using something like Ricky's Stable stuff for the foundation paper in the paper piecing and then just leaving it there. It does just kind of wash way into not much of anything.
I just happened to think of this, and wanted to hear what some of you think of this idea???
Do you think it would work?
Ricky does have sheets that are precut to the size of paper, ready to run through your printer.

thanks
Heather

Anoher member mentioned that she does hand work paper piecing. That is an interesting idea. Does anyone know how that is done? This sounds like a way to get the accuracy of paper piecing while still doing hand piecing. I'd like to know more about how this technique is done.

Hestia, Like most people, I like the accuracy of paper-piecing, but not the paper-pulling afterwards. Then I found Judy Mathieson's book 'Mariner's Compass Quilts' and she explains how to just fold the paper out of the way and stitch next to the fold. I love this technique and plan to use it on the '09 BOM. You can get great accuracy this way (just look at Judy's quilts!) without all the fuss. You still have almost 2 months to check out this technique before the BOM starts - it may be just what you need to take away any hesitation you may have!
-Tina, looking forward to the '09 BOM

Lauretta, you can see my scrappy version of the 2009 BOM on my profile. I also posted photos of the 53 fabrics that I used, because the fabric that Sue used (from TQS) was not available to me!
