The Strip Tube Ruler™, and its little brother the Strip Tube Junior™, have become our favorite rulers for creating complex looking quilts that are simple to piece! To celebrate the Strip Tube Junior™, a book was created with SIX different quilt patterns with stunning variety. Each pattern offers between five and six different sizes, making this a go-to book for any project.
This class covers the Kissy Fishy pattern and is taught by Sally Ellis!

** please verify yardage indicated the book based on the size that you want.
If you want the fish to pop more, try to divide your strips into dark for the Fishy blocks and light for the Water blocks. For the wall hanging size you would need 8 (10,20,28,48) dark strips and 4 light strips (4,16,20,40).
It is a good idea for any class or place you go with your sewing machine to bring a surge protector power strip. You will never know when you might need it.
