ok i found a fairly easy raggedy basketweave design online i am going to make for a christmas gift......
the gal that posted it said she used ...FREEZER PAPER to hold everything together til she could get it sewn...
i do not have any freezer paper and i am wanted to know if i could use wax paper with out messing anything up?

or is there any other type of household items i can use that would make it just as easy to hold everything together

i was thinking maybe wax paper with a tiny tiny bit of spray basting just to hold it ??

thanks for your help

btw to everyone that helped me with my last post... YOU GUYS ROCK...
I did get my very first official quilt done... i will post pics as soon as i get some free time...

I've never done this pattern. Is it an applique or something that is the only thing I have ever used freezer paper for is applique or a quilting design. If it is paper piecing I use normal printer paper most of the time and tear it off as each block is completed and then sew them together.
