    This is very pretty. Did you use the tube method?

    That pattern is so cool. I have seen it done in so many different colors and they are all really cool looking. Good job.

    What is the tube method? This is a really lovely quilt, are you keeping it or is it going away? Bea

    I would BET that if you used small strips, and sewed 4 together, you could do this with strip tubing, and not have to paper piece..........What do you all think?

    Strip tubing basically sews two 2.5" strips together, and then lays a 4.5" (or another set of 2, 2.5" strips sewn together) on top, stitch down both sides to form a tube, then cut into 45 degree tirangles, reversing the ruler with each piece cut. There is a TUTE on the Missouri Star Quilt Company web site that shows how to do these...........really neat when you use scraps.....
