Use for printing foundation or paper-pieced patterns. This fiber-based foundation won't perforate while stitching and supports detailed patterns. The fibers are partially water-soluble; simply dampen the stitching lines and they remove easily without distorting stitches!
Directions for Use and Care
For paper or foundation piecing:
If possible, set your printer’s paper feed settings to “Decorative or Heavy Paper.” If your printer does not have this setting, load only one sheet of Print & Piece at a time.
Copy or print your favorite foundation or paper-piecing pattern directly onto Print & Piece stabilizer.
Cover the numbered sections as directed with your favorite fabrics until the block is complete.
Remove the stabilizer: once the stitching is complete, lightly dampen only the stitching lines with a wet sponge or cotton swab – the stabilizer tears away gently without distorting the stitches!
You can alternately leave the stabilizer within the block completely. When the quilt is laundered, the watersoluble fibers will dissolve and the non-soluble fibers will leave behind a very subtle loft. Create a test block with this method before applying it to an entire quilt to make sure you are happy with the results!
For stabilizing decorative or satin stitches:
Place one layer of Print & Piece directly under fabric and stitch.
To remove the stabilizer, lightly dampen only the stitching with a sponge or cotton swab – the stabilizer will pull away without distorting delicate heirloom, satin or decorative stitches!
