Triangles just got a lot less trying! Twin Peaks by Gayle Bong is not a basic quiltmaking manual, rather it is intended to provide one more method for the piecer to experience. The pairs of triangles shown are sewn together along their short sides unlike the usual half-square-triangle unit, in which you sew along the long side of the triangle. Using this method is quicker - a bonus in any quilter's busy life.

Author Gayle BongAbout the Author

Gayle Bong has been an avid quiltmaker for 25 years. She first learned to sew by watching her mother and by ninth grade she was making most of her own clothes. Designing quilts and writing patterns come naturally to Gayle, who has always been attracted to geometric patterns, fabric, math, puzzles and writing. She is particularly passionate about her fast, contemporary cutting and piecing techniques and shares them enthusiastically in her classes. This is Gayle's seventh book on quiltmaking.
