I keep rewatching this episode! I love Cynthia's technique-even though I haven't tried it yet :lol: I can envision so many possibilities. I wish I could take a class with her.

Thanks for the comments about prewashing. I almost always do, just not with this experiment. The 505 spray baste continues to
work for me and allows me to add seam allowences that tear more easily. And now I'll return to washing and pressing as soon as the fabric walks in the door. :)

The FP may not have stuck because the fabric wasn't washed. The sizing (or whatever it is) from the manufacturer was still in it.

Also, your iron has to be HOT!

Prewash the fabric. Use a hot, dry iron - hottest setting. Iron both the paper side and the fabric side. Use a flat ironing surface, not a padded one. I learned these tips from Inklingo, and they worked for me! Hope this helps.

I was wondering if spray baste might help. Thanks for posting. I have several more quilts to make using this technique and was waiting for a better way to do them. I didn't prewash or use starch either.

I've had a problem with freezer paper not sticking to the fabric too...but a dear friend told me not to use spray starch on my fabric and that was the problem! Hope that could shed some light too!

I had that same problem when I tried this technique a few years ago, and was using the freezer paper that came with the pattern. Also I sometimes had trouble seeing the fold in the fabric. So I used a different technique to make the quilt. She makes it look so easy, but you have to remember she's had years of practice.

Ive been told that all freezer paper is not equal -- even with the same brand. One purchase will be fine, the next one won't stick. :x
"Bad" freezer paper works well if you need to protect the surface when you are painting -- or doing other messy projects.

I have never had that problem with freezer paper, Michelle. Is your paper old? Did you press the FP long enough? :(

I was intrigued by Cynthia's method so I went to her site and downloaded the ice cream cone and watched the videos she has there. My biggiest problem is I can't keep the freezer paper from falling off. I gave up on the cone but will try again with a different pattern with pieces a bit bigger.

Any suggestions on the freezer paper?
Thanks,
Michelle

After watching this show I will never paper piece again! The technique makes so much more sense that I can't wait to try it! Cynthia's studio was to die for; thanks for taking us on tour. :D
