Miniature Block of the Month April 2015 - The Quilt Room
We are a few weeks into April and I have only just remembered to do my Miniature Block of the Month, currently offered FREE by the Quilt Room.The blocks are turning out to be a collection of stars and on this occasion I merged some of the pieces to get a more satisfying shape. I am still struggling with foundation piecing - I managed to cut all the pieces backwards and still had to unpick some .... I will keep trying.
Layout Paper - foundation paper alternative?
So far I have been using regular A4 computer paper for my foundation paper, as I print out the patterns in my Electric Quilt software, but was struggling with its heavy 80gsm weight. I went on a tour of the aisles at our local stationery store to see if there was an alternative I could put through a printer. The best I could find was layout paper which is slightly lighter at 50gsm. This works fine through the inkjet printer, but was not so happy in the laser printer. Have you found any alternatives?
