It is fun to do the paper piecing method, but I hate to pick all the little bits of paper out....Your 'stitch and tear' seems like a great idea. Thank you.

Thank you yes if you copy your pattern on the stitch an tear it is much better my roll of stitch and tear is just the right size for an A4 so I have only got to cut it width size the length is perfect and if you reduce the size of your stitches it is even easier I reduce my stitches to 1.8 that works for me

I admire anyone who has the patience to quilt all those little pieces and I'm green with envy of anyone who can create free motion quilting. These are fabulous!!! The finished quilt will be stunning!
