For all you Tube Quilters out there, Cozy Quilt Shop has a chart on its website that tells you how wide to make your tube in order to have a finished block of a certain size. They use it in connection with their Strip Tube Ruler and refer to using it for Half Square Triangles. However, you could just piece your tube to the the width that they give. Thought it might be helpful.

Additionally, if you sign up for their newsletter, you receive a free pattern for a tube quilt.

And, no, I don't have any affiliation with Cozy Quilt Shop except that I give them my credit card number on occassion when I am ordering something from them.

Thank for this, I'm using this technique on some charity quilts next week. It will come in handy.

Many thanks. Somewhere, I have hand written instructions of the most basic kind that I scribbled as I watched the Missouri quilt video many months ago. Somewhere. So, now, I don't need a treasure hunt when I get around to trying tube quilting.

Thanks so much for the chart, printed it and put it in a protector already. I tried to get a handle on my scraps and used the strip tube method. I cut countless strips, sewed them altogether, cut them and finally got them all sewed together. At 16 blocks per blanket, I ended up with enough for 19 blankets with a 3 blocks left over. Great way to string piece. Even the fugliest fabric looks beautiful using this method.

You don't need the tube quilt strip ruler but it makes it simpler and faster then a regular ruler. I think the chart is based on using that ruler, you put the ruler on the seam line and that makes allowances in the measurement. The book is not that great but worth buying on a clearance sale.

Those measurements on the chart are for making half-square triangles.
