I got this 1930 quilt top. How do I get the newspaper off the back of this quilt? The material is very weak and some tears in it I want to quilt it

    using a q-tip, dampen the newspaper just over the stitching lines.
    don't soak it.

    test one small spot first to make sure the print on the newspaper won't bleed onto the fabrics.

    if you can get the newspaper off cleanly, follow up by reinforcing the top with the lightest weight fusible interfacing you can find.

    use the least amount of quilting possible, with larger stitches.
