I write. I quilt. I cook. I take photographs. What else is there?

Simply Strings - Reposted

I find the information about string quilts is woefully inadequate on the web.  Most people believe that there are only two or three patterns for string quilts.  A few wonderfully pioneering people have come up with a few more.  While it's true that there are basically two or three methods of sewing these beauties together, the patterns are as limitless as the imagination.  I've wandered around on the web and through dusty books from long ago and have come up with quite a number.

So, I've decided to begin a page on my blog dedicated to string quilts.  It's called, "Simply Strings".  Snappy name, huh?  I'll start with the tried and tru and then delve into the more off-beat patterns.  I don't claim ownership on any of these patterns, but I get them from free sources and try my best to give credit where credit is due.  If you have any beef with something I post, let me know - gently.  My mistakes are honest.  I'm not trying to steal anything.  If you have a beef with someone who you think stole your pattern - leave me out of it.

Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of time to sit and just put all the patterns up all at once, so they're going to go up in bits and snatches.  This also necessitates some rearranging sometimes.  So check back often.
