String Quilt VariationsThe block we just assembled is one simple string pieced variation, but there are endless ways to make string quilts. Here are a few simple ideas:
- Sew strings horizontally onto the foundation instead of at an angle.
- String piece onto long strips of fabric, and then use those strips to cut squares, rectangles, diamonds or any other shapes you need for your quilts.
- String piece large blocks and cut them into smaller squares or triangles to replace plain fabric shapes in any quilt.
- Make a free-form log cabin block from random strings. These blocks are a little wonky, but absolutely charming!
