Tube Stripping.

Posted on | August 19, 2011 | 7 Comments

I had watched this interesting tutorial from Missouri Quilt Co. about strip tubing and could not resist the temptation to try it.

I had a Flag Day Farm jelly roll at hand and had no other plans for it, so decided to give it a try. I treated this as my test run.

I also managed to add a border using the left over strips and a few scraps. I have 5 of the dark tan strips to use for binding.

This was incredibly quick and easy to make. I have learnt a few things from my test quilt that I can apply to the next one.

I had to be very careful where the small triangles met on the border as they tend to stretch as they are on the bias.

I also need to take care with the direction of pressing seams to avoid bulk.

I definitely want to try this one again and would use the idea from the tutorial of  using alternating solid strips to make a larger quilt.
