Someone gave me a string quilt to quilt or have quilted that their grandmother made. I took it to a quilt shop to buy backing fabric and the owner told me that most string quilts canít be quilted on a longarm because thereís too much stretch in them. She recommended tacking or tying the quilt. Anyone have experience with a string quilt, either quilting it or tacking it? She actually didnít look at the quilt. It does seem to have some stretch to it. It would be much prettier if it were quilted versus tied.

Any advice is appreciated!!
