Today, Paper Plus (stationery store) had a sale so, as I love wandering around stationery shops I couldn't just walk past this one now could I!?
I had been reading about paper piecing.. I've never done it before, but I've read that newsprint, being a bit finer but still "papery" is a good medium.. I went in looking for either rolls of it, or even some of the big kids scrapbooks.. and then I found this!
It is 100 "leaves" 8 inches wide, so perfect for 6" blocks (I think!) and its newsprint .. yay!
its too late at night to take photos of the stack (hence the google pic) but I have but I bought 5 pads! so thats a lot of blocks!
At first I'm thinking something like a wonky strip block or something, just to get me going. And to bust a bit of my crazy ever growing fabric stash.
Do you paper piece? Do you like it? Any tips? Can I use starch still even with the paper there?
Thanks for visiting!
