Raise your hand if you love paper piecing but HATE taking the papers out of the blocks.
Recently I learned how to do paperless paper piecing and it is SO great that I have to share it with you all.
Paperless Paper Piecing is similar to paper piecing in technique. But the main and most important difference is you can reuse the templates and you don’t have to rip out any paper.
Instead of making 1,000 copies of your template (number maybe slightly exaggerated, but only slightly), you trace a copy on freezer paper. (Hm, maybe this is better called Freezer Paper Piecing?) You may want to make a few copies so that you can work in batches. I made 4 of each template so I could work in batches of 4s.
You will need a printed copy of your template(s), a pen or pencil, a ruler, freezer paper, and paper cutting scissors.
Using the ruler as a straight edge, trace the template onto the paper side of the freezer paper.
Don’t forget the numbers and any other information on the template, especially if you are going to reuse the template at a later date. You can trace the 1/4” seam allowance now or add it when you trim the blocks during the last step.
