Man-O-Man, you have just inspired me with your four strips of fabric and then squared plus cut into quarters! This method sounds so much easier than my usual strip sewing onto muslin for a quilt top. I am off to my sewing room now to tackle that big basket sitting upon the floor full of left over fabrics. I generally cut my left overs into 2-1/2 strips for charity quilting so I am off and running all ready. Thank you so much for sharing your hubby's beautiful quilt-in-progress. That navy is really accenting everything. Congrat!
