    I am making some Christmas runners with a friend before Christmas. She isn't very experienced... I think we just found our project! Thanks for posting!

    Thanks so much for that site. I had never heard of tube quilting, but it sure looks easy. I'm going to have to try that.

    Who thinks up these neat and easy techniques? I can barely follow a printed pattern, let alone develop a new technique!

    I love it. Thank you. Have to do that one for Christmas.
    I have done tube quilts with El Burns but a very different pattern using many strips.

    Actually, the technique is very old, referenced as "bishop's scarf" ... I learned about it on Sew Perfect a bunch of years ago ... guest was:
    Linda Maghee ... I used the technique to use in foundation pieced vest ...
    however, the newest book I have found is called Tube Piecing (?) been awhile since I have seen my copy ...
    and, the author has done some amazing things with the technique.
    God bless those souls who must look to the skies, when the rest of us are willing to settle on the view at our feet! LOL ...
    now, to go find the book!

    This looks great.
    Thanks so much! I can't wait to give this a try on my next quilt! (should be quick too since I need to get it and another quilt done for Christmas!)

    I made a Bargello quilt by tube quilting. I made it from jelly rolls and there were much more strips sewn together to form the tube than what was shown in the video you posted. It was definitely something different to try than the usual strip quilting I'm used to doing.

    I couldnt wait to try it.
    My two strips came out at 4 1/2 so cut my third strip that size, it works just fine.
    Love that block, so easy.

    :oops: I didn't check to see what you were discussing, and now I surmise that you aren't talking about the same things I was! deepest apologies!
    When I get back to it, I will find the site/book/whatever that will show you what I thought was being talked about. :oops:

    Okey, dokey!
    SO I got a chance to watch the video and agree, that is a fun way to make that block! I have practiced doing this before, but I couldn't figure out why I always had to "unsew" a few stitches (which they told me I would have to do, but still! ) anyway, the tip I picked up was: Put the 45 degree line on the sewn line ... almost makes for a dog-ear free block! Cool!

    Tried this today got myself 12 nice blocks and it was just as easy as it looked in the video.
    (mine came out to 4 3/8 in wide but did like Rose Marie and just cut large strip same size)
    daughter helped lay them out we've got 12 different layouts..
    some do look alike but there are differences because she used the 2 diff squares in different ways.
    Will post a pic soon as I get them sewn together part way cause if I move them now I'll not know how they go together again LOL
