  9. I just read your post on Stach Manicure. I finished a string quilt a few days ago following the same technique, but struggled with ripping off the paper. Your idea is great! Only have a few scraps left, but think enough for a potholder!

  23. I love string quilts and have made several. To make sewing the blocks go twice as fast, after you place your first strip down the center you can sew strips to both sides before getting up to press. Cuts the trips to the ironing board in half!
