String Quilt Fun!

String quilts are made from narrow strips or “strings” of fabric. The strips are sewn together to form squares, triangles or other shapes. Traditionally the strips were sewn onto a paper or cloth foundation. I teach a paperless or foundation-free method. It is a quick and fun way to use up lots of scraps. You will be amazed to see how a random assortment of fabrics can come together and make a vibrant, cohesive quilt. 


This class is a “process” versus “product” class, meaning we will be focusing on learning tips and techniques for making string quilts rather than completing a quilt top. During the workshop, you can focus on making just one style of string blocks or make a sample of multiple types of blocks. I will also spend some time talking about various settings for string quilts so you will understand how to put all those blocks together to make your own unique quilt.  

Supply List: 

Fabric: Scraps! Think leftovers: bindings strips, triangles, pieces from finished projects, etc. If you do not have scraps, bring 10-12 ¼ yard cuts, a few jelly rolls or 10-12 fat quarters that includes a mix of light, medium and dark color values. In string quilts value is more important than color. If you are using prints, include plaids, dots, stripes, florals, geometric, etc. Sharing of scraps is highly encouraged.   

Sewing machine. Basic sewing kit, ruler, rotary cutter, mat. *Highly recommended: a large square ruler (9”, 12” or 15”). Please mark all your tools!
