Tubular Strip Piecing: Pattern and Tutorial

Patterns for 5 Kaleidoscope Quilts, 8 Wall Quilts, 2 Bed Quilts, 6 Borders or Table Runners and any other patterns you can find using the techniques.

The tutorial includes patterns and quilt designs made with 60-degree bias tubes made in mirror image, then cross cut, shifted, and re-sewn while remaining in a tube. It is a combination of Seminole and Bargello with a twist and on Steroids. Variations are found, by the way the cross-cut strips are shifted and aligned, and the way the tube is cut apart after the pattern is made.

Many quilters talk about the bias as if it were a curse, put upon quilting. After spending the early part of my sewing years, making garments where the bias is used as an advantage, when I first began piecing there was no reason to believe it would be any different. There were no warnings about the bias and consequently it was never a problem. Consider the bias as your friend. Tubular Strip Piecing is the perfect technique for developing this friendship.

Rita Hutchens is an international quilt teacher and author of the Book Totally Tubular Quilts.
