    strip quilting

    I am making a back for a quilt and I want to use strips. When I get to the end of the strip do I start at that end or the beginning again. I made one starting from the beginning and it was too wide at the end. Was this my mistake. Can someone help me. Thanks

      If your strips were equal widths to start but ended up different widths when measuring the ends, you need some help sewing a consistent seam allowance. I don't succumb to the myth that as each strip is added, it should be sewed in the opposite direction to the pair proceeding it.
      You gots to risk it to gets the biscuit-

        I personally would not want to strip piece the backing of any quilt. Too much trouble getting the backing smooth when sandwiching & pin basting it. Also, all those seams make more bulk when doing the quilting. If at all possible, I use one section of fabric. I've had to piece occasionally, if my backing fabric was not quite long enough, but that's only 2 seams to deal with.
