String Quilting

Project Description

What was your inspiration? Jenny's course just made me see how easy it was to take strips and start sewing. The hand-dyed fabric for the log cabin cushion is just beautiful; purchased it from Artfabrik. The blue strip cushion was my first attempt at string quilting - and I have grown to love this technique.

What you will need

  • cotton batiks
  • warm white batting
  • Yli variegated thread

Q&A with RosemarieW

Good grief, this is gorgeous. And lots of small strips - your patience is outstanding. I am planning to try another string block, but will start from the inside and work out --- truly an experiment. I am not good on the "wonky" stuff and the center not matching gives me the creepy crawlies. My career as a bookkeeper makes my mind think only in straight, balanced and neat!
RosemarieW answered:
Thanks - you are kind. Small strips are quite easy if you see them on a piece of muslin.
