The traditional way to piece quarter-square triangle blocks is to cut squares into pieces before sewing the patches together-it's tricky and it wastes fabric, especially with directional prints. Sandra shows you how to cut and sew strips for a simple, waste-free method to create these blocks. If you use streaked batiks or striped fabrics, the design results are pure eye candy. One easy technique gives you a lifetime of design possibilities, and the sewing is simplicity itself. Use these versatile blocks for: Art quilts, appliqué backgrounds, quilt borders,and interesting backings.
