            Step 1 - sewing all the strips together end to end on a 45 deg. angle. Every time I try to do this I end up ripping it out because the strips don't line up when I open it up. I know there's got to be an easy trick to do this right the 1st time. Help!!!

                        I wonder if this would work with your own cut strips if the yardage was more than 40" wide? Or should you trim the strips to all be 40" to achieve the same look?

                          Katie yes you could cut your own strips, the strip length doesn't matter nor do the number of strips, they say 40" as it is a nice even number but the strips are in fact the WOF. I've been making this style of quilt for ages now except I cut all my strips in half so that you get a more randomly even spread of the fabrics across the entire quilt rather than ending up with some single lengths across the width of the quilt. This is just my preference but it does mean more work, more seams etc.
