Getting Your Pattern Onto Freezer Paper
Tip #1 covered notions you’ll need to get great results. And now that you’ve got the basic notions, your next question might be…how do I get the foundation on to the freezer paper?
In this five-minute video, I’ll demonstrate two ways to transfer a quilt pattern (foundation) onto freezer paper. These two options include drawing the pattern onto a roll of freezer paper or printing it from a digital copy onto a Printable Freezer Paper sheet.
After the foundation is on the freezer paper, I’ll explain how to add seam allowances, if desired. Then you’re ready to cut out the foundation and start piecing.
It’s basically a “connect the dots” game for quilters!
See? Use any foundation pattern with this technique without the ripping and sore fingers. ANY! (told ya I’d say it three times! ANY! lol!)
Pretty cool right?
