PP is difficult for me as I have limited use of one hand--so I cut freezer paper , and iron used fabric softner sheet on it.. & copy the pattern on my copy machine ,the soft pattern is then peeled of the fp...after sewing the block you don,t have to remove the sotner sheet.

Maary Jo.....for me, doing a crazy quilt, it isn't so much a matter of designing as it is picking out pretty fabric, cutting squares and triangles and start sewing them together, usually using a 6 or 9 inch muslin square as a base. When corners or edges stick out, they are either covered with lace or trims and then trimed evenly and the squares stitched together. I use scraps that I accumulate as a rule with the backing fabric specially purchased. I did a Victorian vest, using a pattern about 5 years ago, lost the pattern in moving, thus my original question here on the paper piecing. There is a good book called "Quilting l0l" that is sold at JoAnn Fabrics that is pretty good. Try designing one square as practice. If it works, do more. If not, make necessary changes and make another. Good luck. Sorry I'm not much help
