Ankara String Quilt

Ready for a fun and artistic approach to quilting?  Combine simple stitching with the drama of Ankara/African prints in your own unique way, for a dazzling effect we like to call "Organized Chaos"! The look is random, yet the approach is fairly deliberate, and easy to learn.

In this scrap-busting class, you will:

  • Use the quilt-as-you-go string piecing method
  • Mix and match the colors and patterns with confidence
  • Learn tips to simplify the block building process
  • Find out why Lisa incorporates upholstery fabrics into her quilts
  • Try two simple yet effective faux-binding methods
  • Discover at least eight more project ideas beyond the wall quilt. 

Of course, one key to the look is having a wide VARIETY of African prints to pull from!  If your stash needs a boost, try our jelly rolls, each with 50 DIFFERENT strips - no repeats, just lots of fabric:
