Book Review: String Frenzy. Chatterbox Quilts

This is the typical “large” layout of the quilt. The quilt is on about 2/3 of the page..the words take up the rest.

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.

This layout of the quilt isn't as big but it's still easy to see…easy to count….easy to examine.

Look. Here's Punkin' Patch. Several of you might remember that this was published in Quiltmaker magazine last fall.
