  1. Re string piecing, when do you remove the paper foundation?

    • Molly–A good rule of thumb is to not remove the paper foundation until you have secured the block by sewing to other blocks so it doesn’t distort. Thanks for watching!

  2. Why do you use phone book pages for the string piecing block? Is it just an option instead of foundation paper to recycle?
