    I gave it a try. Love it. The bias edges were a bit tricky but used lots of starch. The final layout is a bit different. Will post another picture when I get the borders on.

    Why is this called a tube? Is there a quick sub title directory for new comers to this group? I don't speak your language. BY the way beautiful quilt and sure hope I get to see a completed picture.

    I am also a newbie, and I was wondering why it is a tube quilt, too. Is it some method of contstruction? If so, is there a tutorial online? I love your color choice!

    Yes, there is a link to a video that you can watch. The sewing parts are easy. Just be careful about the bias edges, they can really stretch.

    I got most of the borders on tonight. Ran out of fabric for the last border, got one side left to do. I need another 1/4 yd to finish it, no problem, they still have some at my LQS.

    OMG yes, and I would have never thought about using starch if it wasn't for reading all the advice on this board.

    I have never used starch for bias...do you spray the starch when you first press the triangle open?

    How much fabric did it take and how big will the quilt be when finished. Our quilt group, Piecemakers, wants to make one as a group project.With your info, I won't have to figure so hard how much fabric it will take. Your colors are so nice together.

    I had 4 one yard cuts. I ran short of the fabric that I used for the last border by 1/3 yd. 3 1/2 yds would work for the backing. I don't remember the exact measurements but it's a good throw. It's on the machine being quilted now so will measure it when I'm done
