    It's Playtime: Back Cover Information

    I asked my quilting friends "What do you need to make quilt making easier and to help you finish your projects?" Their reply, "We need help deciding on pieced borders and how to apply them." Another said "Are there any more uses for Triangles on a Roll grid paper?" So I combined the two concerns and have written this book to share some ideas and techniques that I believe should help. Triangles on a Roll grid paper is a notion that allows you to make the building blocks of many designs quickly and efficiently so that you may have the time to play with arrangements and enjoy the process of making your quilt. It is available at many quilt ships. My friends took these ideas and applied them to their projects. As a result, quilts were finished, pre-printed panels were used in very creative ways, and they finished some very fine quilts.

    The border pages show how to use one little block in many different ways to produce many styles of borders.

    In addition, there is a section on innovative ways to use Triangles on a Roll grid paper. Twisting Stars, Quarter Square Diamonds, and many others are fun to make and help you get the work done easily. There are also several designs, which I refer to as Conver-sational blocks. Many are designs fro children's quilts. Using the quarter square triangles allows unlimited potential for your creativity.

    Triangles on a Roll grid paper is the answer to the half-square and Quarter square triangle dilemma. It offers the most efficient and flexible method for making half square triangles.

    • It is printed on a roll of paper that enables you to make as many or as few triangles as you want with two different fabrics.

    A continuous paper grid for accurate sewing of Half or Quarter Square blocks:

    • The seam allowances are included in the pattern, so all you need to do is sew and cut using the pattern on the paper.
    • Cut two fabrics as instructed on packaging for width and length to obtain the number of blocks needed.
    • Lay fabrics right sides together
    • Cut paper to fit and pin to fabric.
    • The grid is a guide for sewing and cutting.
      • Stitch on the dotted line, following the arrows. For best results use a fine needle and a short stitch.
      • Rotary cut all solid lines and tear paper away.
    • It is available in many finished sizes

    Sew and Fold on a Roll is a continuous roll of 50 feet of paper with color-coded instructions demonstrating how to easily make flying geese and chevron braids.

    Both flying geese and braids have many wonderful applications in quilt making, not the least of which is making distinctive borders. However, as you spend time designing more quilts, you can find many other uses for them.

    Cut either triangles for the Flying Geese or strips of fabric for the Braids as indicated on the paper. Place the fabric pieces in their respective guides on the paper. Sew using 1/4" seams. Fold the fabric over the stitching and press. Add the next triangles or strip of fabric as indicated on the paper. Continue sewing until you have your desired length.
