With all the talk about string quilts lately Last week I decided to make one. Even though I have been quilting less than a year I have a lots of odds and ends of fabric thanks to several friends downsizing and my frequent trips to Goodwill.
At first I did not know what I would use for the foundation but then I found tracing paper among my hubby’s art supplies. Works great and irons well. He had 3 weights. I started with the heaviest first that was the easiest to get off after the block was completed. I have just finished off the second heaviest weight not so easy to get off but not too bad. I am about to start on the 3rd and final roll.
I am making 9-inch squares with the center strip white. I have 54 blocks done so far. I plan on making 80.
Here is my questions, it seems like all the pictures of string quilts I have seen are done on point is there some reason for this? I have not yet sewed any thing this way. Also wondering what method of quilting is most often used?
Thanks for any comment. As always, LOVE this board
