November Workshop – Rayna Gilman
No Strings Attached.
Modern updates of an old favorite!
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!
