Sara was kind enough to lend me a book that she recently purchased. String quilts are a process of using your scrap fabric and wasting nothing. Gwen Marston made most of the quilts in 1999 and published this book in 2003. I always seem to be behind the times. Last year I made my first and only string quilt.
Now in 2010, after reading this book and seeing the versatility of this type of quilt, I am anxious to make more. Gwen goes into great detail about the history and turning scraps into beautiful quilts. If you see her book, I think that you will agree and be enthused about what can be done with you srcaps.
