Hi Quilters!

Tips from Kaye on Easy Strip Piecing....

Strip piecing is easy. And it also means different things to different people.

When I tell people that most of what I do is strip piecing, I get responses such as, "I made a strip pieced quilt once". But once you sew strips together (hence the term "strip piecing"), where do you go from there?

My strips turn into stars, hexagons, wedges, kaleidoscopes, flying geese, depending on how the strips are cut.

I cut mine with one of my 3 Starmaker Master Templates to get hundreds of designs, most of which are shown in my cutting technique book and video, "Starmaker Design Concepts".

40 years after designing the Starmaker Master Templates, I am still coming up with new designs. So far, I have used them in numerous magazine articles, 26 books and over 50 patterns. And I am currently working on several more patterns.

My suggestion to quilters - when reading quilting books and magazines which give you templates to cut, is to lay one of the Starmakers on top of the template. If the Starmaker lines up with the shape of the template, switch to strip piecing and cut the shapes with the Starmaker. So much faster than making your own template, drawing around it and then cutting it out.
For more information, go to www.youtube.com/user/kayewood to watch my free videos to see how easy this type of quilt making can be.

The most flattering Bohemian style tiered skirt you will ever wear...
The Athena skirt pattern has figure flattering strategically placed tiers that swing with your step, but don't add to your hips.
The Calista skirt pattern is a fun flouncy short skirt that is feminine and fun to wear.
Use up your 5" squares for this skirt, or just cut some up of your favorite fabrics. Both of these cute skirts are found in this pattern.
