The STRING Quilt

String quilts are fun to make as you do not have to worry about being so precise when sewing blocks.  Relax, as long as you can sew a straight line, you’ll do fine. The whimsical free-form nature of this pattern looks great in all types of fabrics.  (This is a good project for beginner quilters.)

Below you’ll find the links to the videos in this series on the STRING Quilt.  In the first video, you’ll get an intro and a quick look at the quilting process.  The next six videos provide more detailed info about each phase of construction.  Finally, in the last video, you’ll find out about some common problems and how to avoid them.
