Note from Nancy
Traditionally, string quilts were sewn to a newspa-per foundation. After stitching the fabric “strings”to the newspaper, the paper was painstakinglyremoved. Fast forward to the st century. Gingerand Bobbie’s use of a polyester mesh stabilizeras the foundation piece changes the process!The stabilizer is lightweight and can stay as partof the quilt—no removal necessary. What a greatway to create string quilts!
