How to Quilt Your Quilt by Ana Buzzalino

To Ana Buzzalino, the quilting is the most fulfilling part of making a quilt. Once the top is finished, pressed, and layered, the fun starts.

Sewing Techniques Article

Spiderweb Quilt by Elizabeth Dackson

String quilts, while currently quite popular amongst modern quilters, began as utility quilts as early as the mid 1800s. String quilts were usually with foundation piecing on either muslin or paper; quilters commonly used newspaper for the foundation and whatever fabrics were available for the strings. Although the quilt design looks complex, when you see how the paper pieced quilt patterns break down, it all becomes clear!
