Virginia Bound assembled

I plan on making another in a super king size for my own bed. The quilt on my bed was made so long ago it is falling apart. Sad when a quilter has a "crappy first quilt" on her own bed!
The first 4 quarters. I fell in love with this piecing process. Thanks Bonnie!

At the very beginning. I used the Kabnet wax paper to make all the foundation blocks.

What was your favorite kind of paper? At the beginning you used waxed paper...did you switch?

I bought some tracing paper that fit through the printer. ( 500 sheets) Do you think I can use that up in a lifetime. HA!
Do not know if I will like how they tear. The wax paper was great to remove.
