Have you ever wondered how to make a quilt from scratch? Quilt designer and sewing tutor Monica Poole from Pattern Poole shows us everything you need to know about making a quilt from start to finish in this three-part series.
About this quilt
This is a quilt as you go (QAYG) design that is constructed with Monica Poole's Easy Cover Strip Method, it's suitable for the beginner to the advanced quilter.
String quilts have a rich history and date back to the 18th century. They were made from scrap fabrics and used strips of all sizes. String quilts knew no bounds and were not about perfection where every single seam aligned, they were about the stunning geometric patterns that were created by the array of strips or strings. This quilt is made from organic quilters cotton in a light and dark fabric plus three medium tone fabrics such as pink, yellow and orange. This striking colour combination gives our string quilt a modern edge. The backing fabric is a Jocelyn Proust printed cotton that ties in beautifully with the fabrics of the quilt top.
