I've got almost 58 squares ready for a string quilt made all of scraps. I'm undecided about taking off the paper. I think leaving it until after the squares are sewn together into the quilt top would be good because I wouldn't stretch any of the edges or chance ripping apart any seams. But, leaving the paper in might be more difficult to remove when the quilt is all togeher & there are seam allowances around every square. If I have explained this in an understandable way I welcome any thought. Thank you.
