My Little Paper Piecing Secret

So I have a little paper piecing secret. I buy reams of newsprint off of Amazon to use as my foundations. The total of the ream and shipping is just under $9, and totally worth it compared to buying actual foundation paper at quilt shops which will often run $5 for 20 sheets of the exact same stuff except that I'm getting 500 sheets. 

And here we have another bee block, this one for Jenn who wanted medium pink, red, and green. And for those wondering, each of these stars takes about an hour and a half to do from printing the foundations to sewing all the pieces together at the end.

  1. Love your little star! I am still new to paper piecing, so each block takes a whole day (with lots of interruptions).


Feedback is fantastic! Give me your thoughts, and I make every attempt to respond to all of them.
