The queen size “string quilt” measures 80 inches x 100 inches. It is an idea adapted from the pioneer women who sewed tiny strips of fabric to newspaper squares until they had enough blocks to sew into a quilt. That technique was the forerunner of modern paper-piecing. The vivid blocks of this quilt are set off with narrow black sashing strips. The back is batik squares which form a pattern of their own. The materials are washable cotton, the filler is polyester/cotton blend. Always free shipping from Dakota Vistas.
