Overture uses traditional patchwork technique, no templates or paper piecing. The complex look is achieved with strip piecing which makes it quick and easy to follow (phew!). You just need to sew straight lines, not one curve or diagonal seam, and this modern pattern is fat quarter friendly. Great with solids as well as prints, includes a coloring page to help you pick your fabrics. The step by step graphics, cutting diagrams and concise directions make it super easy to follow along.
