Do you paper piece? I'm new to the technique and have tried just about every paper suggested and was really frustrated with the bulk of the paper. I also do machine embroidery and just for the heck of it decided to try some "no show mesh" for the foundation. Boy did I get a nice surprise, it worked really nice. One downfall was I had to trace my pattern onto the mesh, but that was just some crafty time for me and I enjoyed it. I may never wrestle with the paper again, the "no show mesh" was left in the potholders, layed nice and flat, and made stitching easier. Try it, you'll like it!! I dont know what the result will be to use it in a quilt, but I'm sure gonna try it. I use it on embroidered shirts a lot and it doesnt seem to shrink and helps to hold stitching in place.
