Pattern Details

Quilt Size: 49" x 59" Gather up all those scraps and strings that you’ve been saving. We all have them - they are little bits left over from our favorite fabrics. This method is called “string piecing” and has been around for well over 150 years! Newsprint paper is the foundation and you can use standard 8-1/2” x 11” for this quilt. Add borders and you have a celebration of color that will warm your heart with memories of all the quilts represented in those little bits and strips! You can see more pictures of the steps at my blog:
