Our British made foundation paper makes foundation paper piecing easy. Our paper is semi-transparent so you can easily see through it to place your fabrics. It feeds perfectly through inkjet and laser printers, plus it has a rough texture to ensure glue easily sticks to it.
It is thin and easily tearable ensuring you have no problems tearing it off the back of your work when you have finished piecing. You can cut it with scissors. a rotary cutter or score it. It does not scorch or curl up from the heat of the iron nor does the heat transfer any of the ink onto your fabric. What more could you want from a foundation paper?
What is foundation piecing?
Foundation piecing is a method of quilting that allows you to use small scraps to sew detailed designs, or designs which require precision piecing by sewing through paper which you then tear off afterwards. You can use free foundation patterns, purchased patterns or downloads from books and magazines which you either print directly onto the paper, trace onto the paper or draw on freehand. You sew along the lines to ensure precision, this allows you to create designs that would be very tricky using traditional piecing methods.
