    I think that medium weight interfacing would be too stiff to leave in a quilt. It would be ok to leave in a wall hanging, though. I would reserve it for tote bags or other such projects.

    Medium weight interfacing would be good in purses or tote bags where you wanted some body to them. The problem with using it for paper piecing is that you wouldn't be able to remove it, as it won't tear away. You could also use it in table runners instead of batting. It would give you body without the bulkiness of batting.

    I bought interfacing today ... the medium was stiffer than the heavy! Go figure!! :)

    Neither were anywhere near as crisp and stiff as interfacing used to be ... IMHO!

    While I bought it for another purpose, I was thinking it'd be a good stable fabric for foundation piecing and string quilts.
