Default Foundation for string blocks

Here's something I discovered.

I was making some string blocks for a charity recently & was looking for some other type of paper to use for the back (to tear off). My DD is a chiropractor & uses disposable face cradle paper on her table. I got a roll from her recently & tried it & it worked great. It's thin, soft & tears away very easily. If you are in good with a doctor or chiropractor, they may give you a roll (or the end of a roll) every now & then for your string blocks. I bet that paper that doctors use on their exam tables would work great also.

I wonder if a medical supply store would have that kind of paper? Just a thought.

Mine is in rolls & about 8 1/4" wide. I think you can get it wider than that also.

Unless I make QAYG string quilts I don't use a foundation.

Old phone book pages work well for me. I also couldn't find anyone that had an old phone book - so I got resourceful and used "financial" books that you get from your broker in the mail.

I use a paper similar to this:
https://www.amazon.com/Interfolded-P...bnet+wax+paper
It works great, easy to tear off, and inexpensive!
