You’ll fall in love with these modern versions of the string quilt! Combine strips with negative space and be ready for a surprise or two! Your granny wouldn’t recognize these new versions of the classic string quilts!
Modern and contemporary or wild and funky! Choose the size and color of your background; add strings in all solids, prints, or a combination. Use a limited palette or go wild with scraps. No two blocks or quilts alike!

We are looking for volunteers to teach at various tables for the “Tips and Techniques” demo meeting in February. Please contact me if you would like to share an interesting or time saving idea that works for you.
I am also hoping to have a new table geared towards young adults that is “Quilting for Beginners” to get a new generation involved.
