Quilt Custom Designs With Tissue Paper Templates

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

In these two great tutorials by Quilts by Jen, learn how to make and use tissue paper quilting templates. Jen walks you through the process of creating custom quilting templates from your own designs and then explains how to use them for your project. For the tutorial on how to make a template, go here:  http://quiltsbyjen.ca/how-to-make-a-tissue-paper-template-for-quilting/. Go here to learn how to use your template: http://quiltsbyjen.ca/how-to-use-a-tissue-paper-template/ .

Even better than tissue paper for making quilt templates is HTC Retail’s Fun-Dation. This translucent, nonwoven tearaway is stronger than paper, but still allows you to see through fabric layers for easier positioning and less flipping back and forth. It will not tear prematurely as can happen with tissue paper, and it tears away cleanly without the use of tweezers.
