What Paper Should I use for Foundation Paper Piecing?

What type of thread should I use for Foundation Paper Piecing?

Regular 50wt thread that you would use for quilt block piecing is fine.

What should my stitch length be for Foundation Paper Piecing?

I set my stitch length at 1.5 for Foundation Paper Piecing to make it easier to tear out the paper afterwards.

Basically, the needle perforates the paper more times at a shorter stitch length so it is easier to tear it away. You can go smaller if you like but I would advise against going much bigger.

Just pick a variety of low volume (background) and medium to dark fabrics (heart) and have a play.
