Freezer paper is the most wonderful, versatile stuff for quilters and crafters. It was originally designed as a wrapping to protect food in the freezer, but quilters realised there were many more uses for it and we are still coming up with new uses every day!
If you’ve never used freezer paper, or only know one way to use it, watch this video. It’ll give you a whole raft of ideas of what to use it for. It’s not just for applique but also stencils, labels, English paper piecing and many more ideas. Freezer paper is a cheap, versatile product that will help you turn out beautiful, well-crafted quilts.
Freezer paper is a US product so it is not available in New Zealand supermarkets (it is NOT greaseproof paper or lunchwrap), but you can buy it here at Carol’s Quilts by the metre. It’s a must-have in my sewing room. I use it both when I make my art quilts and when I’m relaxing and making a traditional quilt.
Enjoy the video and if you know of any other uses for freezer paper, leave a comment, we’d love to learn from you!
