STRIP EASY makes cutting patchwork squares as easy as can be. You simply sew strips of fabric together and then cut the patches required for the quilt. Ms. Meunier shows us nine different quilts that can be created with this technique. A page of general directions is included and a page on how to piece the Drunkard¿s Path block is also given. For those of us not used to doing anything but straight lines, this page is especially helpful. While I am not a particular fan of the colors used in the quilts as they are show. I can certainly see the wonderful patterns and will be sure to make them using my own color style. Each pattern has a materials list, cutting instructions and directions. The book doesn¿t have all the instructions in one place. That is, the layout artist is still thinking in the ¿above the fold¿ newspaper mentality of 20 years ago and uses the ¿continued on¿ direction instead of putting all the instructions for one quilt continuously. People don¿t want to have to hunt for the ¿rest of the story¿. It was most likely done this way so that each facing page would show a full-size quilt photo and the beginning instructions. Using another colorway would prevent this, as well as using smaller photos and placing the templates with the instructions rather than putting these things on a page farther back in the book.
