Paper and Foundation piecing are methods for making the smallest quilt block with the highest degree of accuracy.

1 For paper piecing, draw, trace or computer process lines and numbers onto Jonny Seww's Stabilizing Paper.
2 The fabric pieces you select do not have to be cut precisely. Be generous when cutting fabric pieces as excess fabric will be trimmed away after sewing.
3 Place fabric pieces on the gloss side of the stabilizing paper. Centre first piece, right side up over section numbered 1. Hold stabilizer up to light to make sure raw edges extend at least 1/2" beyond seamline on all sides.
4 Place the fabric for section 2 on the first piece, right sides together. Pin in place on the printed side.
5 Flip the Jonny Seww Multi-Purpose Stabilizing Paper over and sew reducing stitch length on the marked lines between 1 and 2 extending the stitching past the beginning and end of the line.
6 Using a note card, on the paper side fold paper back exposing fabric. Trim seam allowances to 1/8" or 1/4".
7 Flip to gloss side (fabric side) and press section 2 down using a press cloth. Continue adding fabric until complete.
8 After all piecing is complete trim cut along the outside lines trimming excess fabric and stabilizer.
9 Do not remove the Jonny Seww Multi-Purpose Stabilizing Paper until your quilt is complete. To remove grip blocks on the bias snap, and use tweezers to gently remove any excess stabilizing paper. You can also spray with a little water which will help release the stabilizing paper.
