Streaks of Batiks: Fabric-inspired Quilts

Streaks of Batiks: Fabric-inspired Quilts

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.

Streaks of Batiks — Review by James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief
Streaks of Batiks: Fabric-Inspired Quilts offers a new way of cutting and sewing strips to create quarter-square triangle blocks, and is a special recommendation for any quilter who wants to learn new (and easier) approaches to creating triangle blocks. The focus on using streaked batiks for eye-catching new patterns adds yet another element to this technique, offering a blend of simple sewing and quilt blocks that lend to quilts, applique, and art projects alike. With the fine color photos and clear step-by step directions throughout, this is a fine pick for any quilter's library. (Posted on 9/19/13)
Streaks of Batiks — Review by Kathie R Kerler
That quilters love batiks isn't new. But what may be new to many of us is that those streaked or striped batiks can be used to create scintillating squares in a variety of quilt styles. There are suggestions for choosing borders and quilting designs along with a variety of projects. (Posted on 8/12/13)
