I sat down this morning to check my email and my daily blog reads and decided to turn on "Simply Quilts" to see what Alex Anderson was doing today. During her little intro she said that today's guest was Ann Fahl and she was going to show free-form patchwork.
Guess what this lady's new technique is! String quilts! At no time during the entire show does Alex or Ann say the word "STRING". Ann claims to have come up with this new idea about 15 years ago. Hhhmmmm....what about all those antique string quilts like the ones Bonnie talked about over on Quiltville ?
Ann Fahl even offers a one-day class on how to make her free-form patchwork. How could you need an entire day to learn how to make a string block?
Maybe I just woke up on the wrong side of the bed, but this seemed a little ridiculous to me!
