Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Sew an accurate 1/4-inch seam

Pattern Description:

After you piece Squares on Point or Flying Geese using my simple, fun, Tubular strip piecing technique, you won't go back to any other method. It is a new way of thinking about piecing and creating patterns, suitable for beginners and accomplished quilters alike. The easily-mastered technique is adaptable for any sized flying geese and squares on point including miniatures and borders without paper, templates, waste or problems with the bias.
