Recycle Fabric and Save Money with New String Quilt eBook from FaveQuilts.com
Reuse your old fabric scraps and save money with the new Super String Quilts eBook from FaveQuilts.com. You’ll find patterns for blocks, table quilts, bed quilts, and more!
August 1, 2012—Northbrook, IL— Those who think quilting is an outdated pastime are in for a surprise: the quilting industry has not only grown but actually doubled in the past decade, according to a recent article on MySuburbanLife.com. Studies by Quilts, Inc. show that the majority of quilters spend more than $600 a year on quilting materials.
Although crafters everywhere are celebrating the popularity of this timeless hobby, there are reasons to worry about the amount of money spent on quilting. In the current climate of environmental concern, we are encouraged to reduce, reuse, and recycle – not purchase yards of new fabric. For centuries, quilters have followed these three Rs by making scrap quilts out of leftover fabrics. FaveQuilts.com is carrying on this tradition with a new eBook full of string quilt patterns. In Super String Quilts: 13 Paper Piecing and Scrap Quilt Patterns, quilters can find scrap quilt patterns to use even the tiniest strips of fabric.
This eBook is filled with patterns and tutorials to help you put your fabric scraps to good use. You’ll learn the basics of string quilting in a String Quilting Primer (p. 5), and then you can move on to various string quilt blocks (p. 9). More experienced string quilters will enjoy the various home décor projects, like the Heart Strings Table Runner (p. 17) and the Rainbow All-Sort String Pillow (p. 25). If you’re feeling ambitious, try one of the larger throws or bed quilts. The Out on a String (p. 41) throw is a great string quilting challenge!
