About the Author

Sisters Virginia Baker and Barbara Sanders, better known as Ginger and Bobbie to friends and family, were born and raised in Tennessee. Virginia worked for twenty years in the paint manufacturing industry, a job that included color development and tinting, where she developed a keen eye for color. She was also a member of the North Jefferson (Alabama) Quilt Guild, where she was a part of the teaching team that introduced many newcomers to the world of quilting. Barbara is a happily retired bank vice president. The two founded Wool Sisters, a group for rug hooking, in 2000. Today the group has two informal retreats a year and one camp with a nationally known teacher. Virginia also teaches beginning primitive rug hooking in her home studio and teaches at John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC.

Format: Paperback
I have never before made a quilt, but have been collecting my husband's old dress shirts for use in a quilt or something like it. I was excited about this book -- which takes an old approach to string quilting and modernizes it -- because it doesn't stress exact measurements for every piece. I have always been intimidated by the exactness required for piecing. Each quilt is different and fun. I made my first quilt top in two days (doing nothing else, mind you) using those old shirts from my husband. The book gives you measurements for purchased fabric, but I chose to go old school and re-use.
The result is lovely, looks professional (or at least it looks like a quilt made by someone who knows what they are doing!), and I couldn't be happier!
The instructions are clear and the photos make understanding the techniques that much easier.
If you are thinking of quilting for the first time, or if you are experienced but interested in learning a very old technique that our great grannies used, this is the book for you!

These are awesome quilts. Directions are easy. The only flaw is that the template for the Starry Burst quilt can not be cut with the fabric folded (wrong sides together). The template is not symmetrically even. Therefore the squares will not come together evenly. Easy fix, just cut strips and lay fabric top side up on top of top side up. A pain but an easy fix.

This is a great way to get impact with such a simple method. The strip tube ruler is helpful but not necessary. Bought the book so my quilting students could see some possibilities for arranging the stripped pieces. Sheila

There are lots of things you can do with string quilts. Just about any block pattern could be made up from string components. This books has the traditional basics and how-to's so I think it serves it's purpose.

This is a great quilting book. When I saw a friend's copy, I knew I wanted it, then found it on your site. Taking my copy to quilting, several other members wanted it too, and we also ordered a copy for our library! Thanks for the prompt service and great pricing!

My husband and I are both quilters. I have been quilting about 19 years, and he has been for almost four
years. We borrowed a copy of this book from a friend. We decided to add this to our library of quilt
books for future quilts.
