Discover Easy Paper Piecing with Carol Doak’s Foundation Paper! ―Use in most inkjet or laser printers or copy machines ―No shrinking, curling, or turning brittle! ―Holds up beautifully during stitching; tears away easily when you’re done What makes Carol Doak’s Foundation Paper different? ―It’s lightweight (won’t create bulk when you join sections) ―It’s absorbent (less ink transfer where you don’t want it) ―It’s non-coated (fabric won’t slip on it)
I now have a new favorite for foundation piecing with patterns I print on my inkjet printer-Carol Doak’s Foundation Paper. The paper lies flat in the paper tray, and feeds perfectly. I don’t get any bunched up printings. Every sheet feeds individually, resulting in perfect foundations for sewing. And it tears away without any effort-or stress on the stitches. It also allows me to sew sections together without a lot of bulk, which gives me more accurate blocks. (QuiltersReview.com)
If you love foundation piecing these papers are without question a MUST! They are fantastic. I had sewn several quilts which are foundation pieced. The first couple I printed my templates out on normal computer paper, oh what a mistake that was. When you tear out that paper it pulls the seams and it is really hard to get it all out. I then got some of Carol Foundation Papers to try, yes they will cost more to use but oh wow the difference, you will wonder why you bothered trying anything else. The paper will print through your normal printer and in most of Carol’s books you will find a disk that includes Foundation Factory which has the templates on it so you can just print it straight from the computer onto these foundation paper’s (and you can print them out at any size!). They tear out so easily, no pulling on the seam and you get it all out, no little pieces left!
