Sharla Hicks (owner of Soft Expressions and Expressive Quilter) Remarks:

Every once in a while I have a need to revisit a product. I was called on to fix a broken link to Quilter's Preview Paper and realized how much I did not know about using this clear preview paper to its best advantage. I visited the Quilter's Touch website and found videos, how to instructions, and so many wonderful ideas on how to use the product that I revamped the page to reflect all I learned. (SEE BELOW)

Find solutions to:

  • Test drive a quilt design BEFORE quilting.
  • When using clear vinyl and mylar overlays have you ever accidentally marked on your quilt top with a permanent marker?
  • Have you ever created a stencil from clear paper?
  • Have you tried tweaking your final appliqué placement using a clear overlay?
  • Expressive Art Quilter's can use to preview collage and art components before final placement. HINT: Use sections of paper to quickly trace placement and then move to next idea!

See below how each is made easier with Quilter's Preview Paper and see why it may soon become one of your MUST HAVE and never want to be without tools.

Note: How to, Video and Instruction are provided by Quilters Touch and edited by Sharla Hicks, Soft Expressions owner and webmaster.

How-to Use Quilter's Preview Paper


  • HINT: The printed black line on the EDGE of the Quilter's Preview Paper is a visual reference to avoid drawing off Quilter’s Preview Paper onto your quilt.
    • If working from CUT EDGE without Black Mark, draw a line along edge to create a similar visual reference.
  • Use ultra-fine point or fine point permanent markers to draw on Quilter’s Preview Paper.
  • Trace or freehand design onto Quilter’s Preview Paper (SEE VIDEO BELOW)
  • Draw on one side only..
  • Use a light touch when drawing.
  • Lay over quilt to preview SCALE and PLACEMENT of design.
  • Consider the THREAD PATH of the quilting across fabrics in the quilt.
  • If desired, view multiple designs prior to choosing final design. (See above examples.)
  • NOTE: To reuse Quilter’s Preview Paper, use rubbing alcohol on a soft cloth to remove permanent marker.

  • When your decision is made, make a stencil from the Quilter's Preview Paper by perforating the paper with an unthreaded sized needle, size 90 recommended. (See instruction below)
Mark Stencil using Quilter's Preview Paper

Create Stencil to Mark Your Quilt
From Quilter's Preview Paper

1. Trace design onto Quilter's Preview Paper using permanent marker.

2. Cut Quilter's Preview Paper about 2" larger on all sides of design.

3. To perforate, free motion machine stitch along the design with large unthreaded needle (size 90 recommended). Clean or change your needle before it using on fabric.Blue Quilt Pounce

4. Place perforated Quilter's Preview Paper on project.

5. Mark using Chalk Quilt Pounce or cotton batting dipped in loose chalk. Work chalk into perforations by rubbing pounce or batting over the perforations. HINT: Marking works best when project and paper are on a flat, hard surface.

HELPFUL HINTS: Because of variations in temperature, humidity, markers, and other factors, Quilters Touch recommends testing all markers used in this process. Mark on scrap fabric first.

& Appliqué, Collage, Design Element placement. (See below)

HINT: Expressive Art Quilter's can use to preview collage and art components before final placement. A camera is great tool, but actual placement is sometimes difficult to reproduce. Let Quilter's Preview Paper help, HOW? Use sections of preview paper to quickly trace placement (roll size is 25 FEET long) and then move to next idea! Quickly trace placement and move to next idea. Recyle by wiping clean and reuse as needed.

TIP: Do not iron Quilter’s Preview Paper.
