Golden Threads paper. It allows me to be a little bit more precise as I freemotion quilt, and the design possibilities are endless. Here is how I do it:
5. After quilting, rip paper away from stitches (I do it fast but carefully so only paper comes off, not stitches!). If any paper is left under a stitch you will see it easily because of the black Sharpie you used to trace the design. Using tweezers, pull the tiny piece of paper out of the quilt. (For my favorite time to remove the paper, check out @piecedbrain on Instagram today...).
Go ahead and give it a try. You will be surprised with the results!
