I’m sewing these Splendid Sampler blocks out of order again. I was actually going to complete Thursday’s first until I saw that today’s block was paper pieced. I used regular copy paper to print out the pattern for the star quilt. Someone suggested to me a couple of weeks ago to try newspaper print – it’s extremely thin; much thinner than copy paper. And it’s really cheap. Sure enough, Amazon sells pretty much everything including 8.5″ x 11″ newspaper print so I bought 500 sheets for $10. That’s about a fifth of the cost of a well known brand used for paper piecing. It worked great! I think I’ll try it a few more times to see if it continues to hold up well but for a simple block it was great. I just need to square this one up and it’s ready to go.
