I Have a Tip for You

I have a tip for you!!

As you have seen, probably a bit too much, I have been working with string quilting projects. I am making the companion to my Friday Finish Quilted Pillow top.
Again I have used the 10" quilt papers Missouri Star Quilt Co.
I love these papers and they are very easy to tear when you shorten your stitch length to 1.5mm. HOWEVER :), when using strips that are very narrow, 1.5 inches of less it can be hard to get things started and on the right track. 

Soo, my great tip is to use scissors to start the process as shown here:

Then, crease the paper on the stitching line and tear the paper away. 
Brilliant, or maybe just obvious!!
First block of the next pillow.
Hope this helps ya'll.
