Award-winning quilt maker Elsie Campbell loves to take homemade fabric yardage and turn it into stunning, pieced string quilts, whose leftover yardage can then spawn appliqu#65533;d "sister" quilts. After selling more than 10,000 copies, this beautiful book lapsed out of print. It is now available again, with a brand new pattern!

String Quilts is one part innovation, one part thrift, and a whole lot of fun. When author and educator Elsie M. Campbell needs a break from creating precision-pieced and -appliqu#65533;d beauties, she turns to making string quilts. "This is my playtime," she says.

The eleven quilts--perfect for any skill level--are shown in brilliant full-color photography with easy-to-follow instructions, patterns, and diagrams. Also included are "Elsie's Top Tips for Successful String Quilts" and a full-color gallery of twelve additional quilts by Campbell and other playful quilters, all demonstrating the range and charm of string quilts.
