I love string quilts. I love making string quilts. It all comes back to using what you have to make something to keep your family warm. I also love The Quilt Index almost as much as I love string quilts. So for the next couple blog posts I am going to show you some variance in string quilts. I remember reading somewhere about a new quilter who was asked for her strings, and she gave them away...her lesson learned was that even humble strings can be beautiful if given a chance to shine, which she learned when she saw the quilt the other person made with her strings.
