String Me Along


String Me Along
Teacher - Dodi Lee Poulsen from Two Sisters at Squirrel Hollow
Technique - Use of Templates and String Piecing
Skill Level - Advanced Beginner

Sew a wonderful “String” Quilt. Let Dodi show you her secret in making this wonderful quilt using absolutely NO paper piecing. The design is up to you—many designs can be created with just this one block! You will be able to use this technique on additional styles of quilts as well. Use of value and color will change the look of this quilt. Make sure to have multiple values represented when making color choices. (in other words, lots of fabric choices!) Kit includes template, first and second borders, and binding fabric.
