After you piece Squares on Point or Flying Geese Blocks using my simple, fun, Tubular strip piecing technique, you won’t go back to any other method. It is a new way of thinking about creating patterns, suitable for beginners and accomplished quilters alike. The easily-mastered technique is adaptable for making all block sizes, including miniatures and borders. It can also be used to make a variety of other blocks without paper, templates, waste or problems with the bias.

Let the fun begin. Learn to make bias tubes in any angle and in mirror image and make rows of diamonds in any size or angle without paper, templates, waste or problems with the bias. Use them for quilt borders, table runners, clothing, row quilts.

10 pages of directions are included for TUBULAR STRIP PIECING six different spirals and one block from the same strips, in four different sizes, without templates, paper or waste. Variations are shown for shifting tubes and strips in creative geometric ways. Use them for borders or row quilts. Make your own inventive patterns from them.

Tubular Strip Piecing is a ‘cutting edge’ intuitive approach to creative patterning, used to create uniquely intricate patterns without the use of templates or paper and very little fabric waste. The process is simple and repeats once you grasp an understanding of the technique. 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, as well in scale. Working in miniature is a dream. The patterns are endless and left only to the imagination.
