    It is simple and I have never used fabric sizing

    I have made 12 of these quilts without any foundation piece or sizing or spray starch. I have not had trouble with the bias going wonky and I use only scraps not precuts. I have used Warm and Natural, Bamboo, and polyester battings I like the nature fibers over the poly. I hope that helps.

    Would it be better just to use a lot of sizing as suggested by a couple of the other members said?

    String qults are so terrific...but I think I went about it the wrong way...I sewed my strips together...sandwiched it with cotton batting and flannel...and cut the blocks out..thinking I would sew the sandwiched sqs together, kinda like a quilt as you go...but I think I messed up...any ideas to what I can do which what I have created?? I really could use some advise..my sqs are about 15x15..alot of fabric and alot of time invested. Thanks for any advise that comes my way.

    how did you mess up? now you just need to proceed with sashing to join the squares , as in quilt as you go so the sashing is on both sides.........you will have a fine scrappy quilt, and the next time do it the way the instructions say. i would not attempt to cut up the blocks you have made, too messy. does this help?

    Thanks for the tutorial. Even more interesting than a string quilt.

    Love this quilt. I just finished my first scrappy string quilt and got hooked. It was soooo much fun. I was searching in all my totes for more scraps. I am going to make some more. It was fun not to have to worry so much about matching seams.
