Twin Peaks -- Quilts from Easy Strip-Pieced Triangles

Various types of triangles can be cut from strip sets; we will be cutting pairs of triangles that are sewn together along their short sides unlike the usual half-square triangle units, in which you sew along the long side of the triangle. Two strips are sewn together along both long edges. Triangles are then cut from the strip set. The result is pairs of triangles already sewn together along one edge. Using this method is quicker than handling little individually cut triangles -- A bonus in any quilter's busy life.

This unique technique is intended to provide the confident beginners to the well-experienced quilter one more method for the modern piecer to experience.
