Use up your stash and make beautiful fun quilts at the same time! In quilting parlance, "strings" are long narrow pieces of fabric. Learn how much fun it can be to sew these strings of fabric together to create beautiful projects for your home. If you are looking for a clean look, cut your strings straight, if you want a scrappy look, simply cut your strings at an angle, the choice is yours! There are patterns for a pillow, table runner, bed quilt and more! Includes nine fun projects, seven of which can be made by a beginner.
Connie Ewbank learned to embroider in grade school and has been learning new crafts ever since. She owned a two quilt shop and a cross stitch shop for 12 years before selling them both in 2004. She says her home has become her workshop for designing, sewing and maintaining her pattern company. She continues to teach and design patterns for both quilting and cross-stitch.
