    Usually there is a link to a website containing the directions. Click the picture of the project, and a window should open with a link on it. I have seen a few things without links though.

    And sometimes it is just a picture for inspiration.

    I do not understand how pinterest works at all. I keep trying to make sense of it, LOL.

    I finally gave up on pintrest - I got to it from seeing a couple of gorgeous quilt pictures that I never could find again.

    I have come to the conclusion that sometimes "hunting" for the pattern, directions etc, are just not worth the time. I've gotten some recipes on the site but most the time you just can't connection with the web site....conclusion, NOT worth the time...thanks guys...

    I go on Pinterest every day. I always find new ideas, not just for quilting, but many things. I usually click on the link under the picture on the board and it takes me to a sight. Sometimes there are tutorials and sometimes just an idea for you to get inspiration from.

    I can't figure it out at all. I am totally lost on the site so I don't go there anymore.

    I look at Pinterest every day. I prefer using it inplace of subscribing on this newsletter because I can SEE the pictures and find the link quickly. If you click on the picture of the pin it will take you to that particular pin, without all the other pins showing. Next, you should click on the picture again and it will take you to the Internet link. If it DOESN'T take you to a link, it's most likely just a picture from fLicker or a personal pic of the person doing the pinning. I have pics of the baby shoes I've made for my grandsons pinned, and it won't take you to a link. Also, sometimes on the bottom of the pin, you will see a link to the original idea. Good luck...don't give up!

    i have literally thousands of quilt patterns on my pinterest site. i do get annoyed when i go to one i really like and there is no pattern put like someone said its inspiration. to me its frustation. lol i try to make sure i have a pattern connected to most of mine. there are some however that have gotten through without one. but one the whole the site is great. im no quite sure how it all works either but i get great things off there. knitting patterns, household ideas and hints and so much more. the recipes are amazing as well so don't give up on it keep trying it does get easier. look up my site rachelle pare hopefully you will find something you like or can use there.
