A blog reader asked if I had plans to review Bonnie Hunter’s new book String Frenzy…well yes, of course I do.
I’ve had mine for a bit now…first as an ebook edition sent to me by C&T Publishing and then my hard copy.
So do I like the book….YES! I was thrilled when I heard that Bonnie’s book was going to be a STRING quilt book. I loved the quilts from the first string book so much that I made them ALL!! One might think I was “strung out” but NOPE. I was itching to get my hands on a copy.
There are 12 quilts in the book and I don’t have a bad thing to say about any of them. Bonnie out did herself on the designs. I can see myself making all of them.
Geese on a String is the first in the book. Happily Bonnie featured the string triangles on her blog a couple years ago and I jumped right in. I have 400 string triangles already made. I’m thinking I might make two of these quilts for two of my childcare kiddos….we’ll see as things settle down around here a bit.
I’ll need to change some colors up as my strings are in brights.
A few others from the book that I’m highlighting are Straits of Mackinac. I LOVED this one when Bonnie was working on it on the blog. Oh my, I have a basket of fabric waiting for this one.
As per Bonnie style she included the Directions at a Glance. This feature is one of the reasons I love her books. I can quick reference anything. I love this. It makes quilting easier as I’m not reading through all of the directions to find out how many of something I need to make!!
This is one of my favorites in the book…. …
