Back a few years ago, I purchased the templates for a Double wedding Ring and it came with a wonderful book.
The book told how to strip-piece the quilt instead of cutting all those little pieces. You cut (example) 2", 2 1/2", 3" strips, sewed them together and then cut a whole arc. The pices looked a little straighter than if you cut little pieces but you couldn't tell unless you really studied it.
I loaned the book and templates to and friend and she has never returned them and won't even tell me who the author is....I think she lost everything when she moved and is just ashamed to say so. She has done this to others in the past and I still fell for it.
Does anyone know who did this (maybe John Flynn?) I don't want to just start buying templates and books and hope for the best.
