Fleeting Strings Quilt

This is a fun and easy, large-scale paper piecing pattern that comes together quickly — perfect for those who want a fast finish. With pops of color throughout, this quilt is easy to customize to your own style.

“The rectangular, oversized blocks, set in an expanse of negative space ensure that Fleeting Strings comes together quickly.”
—Nicole Neblett

“Fleeting Strings is an updated minimalist version of the traditional string quilt. Unlike the traditional string quilt that is made of strips of fabric throughout, Fleeting Strings uses a selection of strips scattered throughout the quilt. Customize the colors to suit your style!” –Nicole Neblett
