Book - 2009
Rate this:
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 appliquéd "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 -appliquéd 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.
