• I never seem to manage to match points up very well. I suppose I need to invest in some fancy rulers. I hope you don't mind this bit partner!

9. Eva@Pippablue, fabrikatedesigns, ircabbit, a quilt is nice, and 8 other people added this photo to their favorites.

10. Do you have a tutorial for this? I keep coming back to it as it is so pretty! I've seen the basic spiderweb string blocks but I can't quite envision how this one comes together without all the extra side pieces.

11. Hmmm. Tutorial. Uuuummm. Well I just sort of put it together. And it didn't work. So I took it apart. And put it together again. This is sounding like a messy tutorial.

Seriously though. The string parts are paper pieced. Each triangle is 45 degrees. Does that help at all? I don't have any fancy rulers or anything to make this easy or into a pretty tutorial, I just made it work. Which is why I have the mess where the points come together in the middle, I'm sure.

Thank you though -- you're really sweet!

12. 45 degree paper pieced string triangles - that actually does help - will have to do some experimenting on my own :) Thanks for the info and inspiration!

13. I'm glad that it helps a bit! I can't wait to see what you come up with!

14. One more point -- I hope this isn't something insultingly obvious -- I'm kind of a math person and so it's hard to gauge what needs to be said -- When 2 of the 45 degree triangles come together, the result should be a 90 degree (square) angle. I sewed my triangles together in pairs and then trimmed them to make sure that they were square. This helps to keep the angles correct since it's an intermediate check between the 45 degree triangles and the full octagon pattern.

15. Thanks for the tip! I've never tried anything like this before so everything helps!!
