String Quilting

Modern example of string quilting. Modern example of string quilting.

String quilting is a form of patchwork that uses long strips of material, called strings. They can be sewn together in such a manner that they create specific patterns, or they may be worked in a random manner (free-form).

The resulting patchwork cloth is sewn onto a cloth foundation of some kind, thus creating a quilt. It may or may not include a wadding (batting: USA) layer.

Also known as: string piecing.
