String Quilt Pie


Eight Pie-shaped Pieces

From an online auction

An unpublished pattern, popular in the South in the first half of the 20th century.

Attributed to Eula Phillips of Alabama, found by the North Carolina Project
and the Quilt Index. The name for this one was String Pie.

Must have been passed around in the 1900-1925 years when these blues and grays were the look.

Tennessee Project and the Quilt Index
Attributed to Ila Beasley whose family called it a Ball of String.

A good name.

For a good idea. This one from the Wyoming Project and the Quilt Index.

Found in Tennessee

Serves 16
