BOOKLIST (American Library Association)

Waste not: put all fabric scraps into a string quilt basket! So-called because they can be made with fabric remainders as thin as an apron string (or wider), string quilts are pieced together in a thoughtful and flexible way. A favorite old shirt at the end of its life, for instance, could either function as the back of a string quilt pillow or as the frame for different fabrics in a series of tiles. Forster (known on Instagram as @quiltingonthego) is very thorough, helping readers adopt fully the notion of sustainability by laying out the details and how-tos of cutting, piecing, sewing, appliqué, layering, quilting, and binding. And by the way, a sewing machine is not a prerequisite. Traditional quilters may be surprised by some of Forster ‘s tips—and elated by the outcomes of these 15 projects that start from old standard designs like log cabin, stars, and snowballs. This is a seductive invitation to old and new aficionados of the art to recycle and reuse innovatively. Includes templates. — Barbara Jacobs
