Description

Sustainable quilts made from your well loved items with the design inspiration of Best-selling author, teacher and quilter Carolyn Forster.

Many quilters are rediscovering a range of traditional patchwork and quilting techniques that, at their heart, are based on recycling and reusing materials. A style of patchwork that is true to this ethos, and which has been around for centuries, is string patchwork with its use of sewn fabric strips. Due to the scrap nature of string quilts, they are good for using a wide range and eclectic mix of fabrics that, otherwise, would have gathered dust in the corner of a room.

Best-selling author, teacher and quilter Carolyn Forster will show you how to:

  • Transform old clothes and bedding, off-cuts and once-loved furnishing fabrics into 10 beautiful string patchwork quilts
  • To create easily your favourite designs with an array of scraps featuring traditional blocks
  • Ensure nothing goes to waste – included here are 8 little gifts and accessories to make with the leftovers from your quilt-making including a needle case, a quilt-notions pouch, a table runner and duffel bag.

A small section on all the materials and notions to get started, plus an invaluable techniques chapter, is included.

Quilters will have everything they need to create planet-conscious quilts, and in the process celebrate old quilt and patchwork methods from quilters of yore.
