    If you want a quick insruction sheet for the setting triangles I can send that to your regular email. PM me.

    I have also done Card Tricks like Jan. Mary Ellen Hopkins uses this method in her book 'It's Okay If You Sit On My Quilt'.

    I had a heck of a time with the one I made for a sampler quilt. It is aptly named it is indeed "tricky" :)

    Me, too. It seemed very expensive ,at the time, and I waited for the bookstore to have a sale so I could afford it. I still refer to it often.

    That "cheating at cards" is a great name for a great technique. Thanks!

    You gave me away, LOL! Yes, Mary Ellen Hopkins techniques all the way, including the setting triangles instructions I use.

    She was a major factor in the strip piecing-speed piecing innovation that occured in quilting in the late 1970s/early 1980s. Her teaching methods, which were the first I learned, have served me so well inl my 30 years of quilting, that I rarely have come across a pattern that I can not draw/graph out/alter-in-size/or create in a some simpler way.

    I adore her as a person, too.

    Thank all of you for your kind responses to my first post under this topic.
