This makes so much sense I'm surprised I've never heard of it before. This was a technique they mentioned with something called Golden paper but it would work with any. This is for something that is going to be repeated along a border for example.

Get your design whether self drawn or traced from somewhere, cut as many sheets of paper (Golden comes on a roll) and staple them together with the design on top. Then run under your sewing machine with needle only. And it will put that design on all those underneath papers and then just pin them to your quilt and follow the lines. There is a tutorial on this on the Connecting threads website. They have a lot of them there. I'm thinking you could also use the paper doc's offices use that's on a roll. You could probably also use embroidery tear away stablizer as they are also paper and can get it on the roll which would be easier just have to fold it to do the machine thing.

It also works with tracing paper and exam roll paper too! The golden paper is a bit more expensive. It comes from Golden Threads for 12 in by 20 yards for 8.95 a roll.
I don't staple down my tracing paper or my plotter paper, I glue stick with trust purple elmers, a dab here and a dab there. Works great!

You know I meant stapling papers together to do the needle trace on the design not to the quilt right?

I do, you can sew thru the design on the papers, then sew through the paper, or pounce or chalk thru the needle holes to mark your quilt.

I actually print my design on the paper (I have a plotter and exam paper works rather well for me, and actually sew through the paper on the line to quilt, so I never ever have to mark a top again. The bits come out in the wash, but for the most part it removes quite easily.

That's the method I was experimenting with, I found some designs online and printed them to newsprint. That is easy to remove also. But it's not see thru so some places where I was supposed to meet I missed a little. I might try vellum I have some left over from paper piecing. I know they make a special vellum for paper piecing but I found some at Office Depot a lot cheaper.

Vellum is expensive. I use it in PP, not newsprint. Newsprint is a bit too thick for my liking, I like to see the fabric underneath if that makes sense.

I will print on the thin paper, and then dab glue stick it in place (comes out in the wash, and if I have to sew through it, it won't damage my needle) and sew on the design with either the DSM or the LA. Tracing rolls I found are cheaper at Hobby Lobby with a coupon. Then I found exam paper, and buy that online from a med supply company, and it will print nicely on my plotter

like Carol Doak newsprint? If so this stuff I use is much thinner and is more transparent, so I can see the other side like you can with Vellum.

I think this is what you are referring to. I've used this tracing paper and the perforation technique for several years with excellent results.
