    Tube Piecing

    I read in a post a reference made to "tube piecing." Can someone explain what that is? I've never heard of it before.

    This quilt shop/pattern company has a strip tube ruler though you can use other rulers. I love watching their videos that come out monthly

    I have seen tube piecing in either a book or magazine article from years ago.

    Eleanor Burns of Quilt In A Day has done this type of quilt many times. You might check her site or look for videos online.

    For those of you who tried this method, do you like it better than the regular way of making 1/2 square triangles?

    Cozy Quilt Co. has lots of tube quilt patterns. Even a strip tube ruler is excellent.
    I love my life!

    Have fun quilting! If it isn't fun, you will miss a lot.

    I use this method often. It's quick and easy and if you check the youtube tutes for using the Wondercut ruler you'll find some great variations. Most can be accomplished without the Wondercut, although it is a ruler I use often. I also like Jenny Doan's 4 and 8 HST tutorials.
