Why, oh why did I use a tear-away stabilizer to do zigzag appliqué on my Family Life quilt????
Although the back would make a great piece of art with the white jagged lines, that’s not really what I was going for here. I love the look and texture though, and just might explore this unforeseen and yet interesting idea further at some point.
Would you pick all the paper pieces out or just leave them in? Will they dissolve if I wash the finished quilt before shipping it off to its destination? Will they still make my appliqué seams stiff as cardboard a century from now when the quilt is stored away at the attic or proudly displayed at some high ranked museum (it could go either way; one way more likely than the other though)??
