Get ready to stylishly bust your stash and scraps with a fresh take on a time-honored quilt making technique—string quilts! Strings are strips and scraps of fabric that are usually too small to be useful for most projects, but they’re just right for the fun designs in this complete step-by-step guide. Classic to Contemporary String Quilts takes quilters through every step of the string quilting process with helpful tips and suggestions. The front of the book is packed with string quilt techniques followed by 14 quilt projects with clear instructions and diagrams. Author and quilting teacher Mary M. Hogan reimagines many traditional and beloved quilt blocks, like the Card Trick or Churn Dash, as string blocks. Using strings, each classic quilt is unique, and updated for the 21st century with bold colors and contemporary settings.
Mary Hogan is a former university professor who teaches and designs at The Quilting Season in Saline, MI. She focuses on teaching, improvisation and using as many fabrics as possible when creating her string quilts. She is the author of Landauer Publishing's String Quilt Style and Fast-Fold Hexies from Pre-cuts & Stash.
