    Have you tried it?

    Has anyone tried using sandwich papers for paper piecing? I was watching a video where it was being used for quilting a design onto fabric. It's easy to see through and tears away easily after stitching. It occurred to me that it would work really well for paper piecing. She mentioned that it can be purchased at the big box stores. That might be even cheaper than tracing paper. I usually stitch multiple copies of my design on my machine without thread so I have multiple copies of my pattern. I prefer it over computer paper patterns so this would be a product I'd consider using. I'd love to know if anyone has tried it and if you know where I can buy it - Sam's, Costco, Smart & Final........?????

    I've not tried it, but I am pretty sure Sam's club sells them.

      I read something today about using old telephone book pages for paper piecing!

      I cut it twice and it was still too short!

        The only thing that would keep me from using telephone pages is the printing on them would confuse me and also not being able to see as well through the paper. However, phone book pages would work really well for string piecing since the benefit of seeing through the paper isn't necessary.

          I would be concerned that as with newspaper print the ink would come through after a time.....

            Look up your nearest Sysco's for those papers in bulk. They are a restraunt supplier.
