    I always end up having to trim to 6 1/4, but you know what, that means I end up getting one extra block per strip. Not too bad a trade off. Your quilt will be beautiful!!

    This looks great, but I would put the white in the middle. It's the outside rails that make the stairstep design, and I would personally prefer not to have the white making the stairsteps. It will look great either way, but that's just my personal preference. I love the inspiration print.

    As for pressing, I would put all three strips together, then press. And I agree with the others. Take an average width of your strip sets, and use that measurement to cut your squares.

    I also like the suggestion of putting the white in the middle.
