    When you finish your quilt can look something like this one.

    Did you start out with a 12" block, then when trimmed to 11 1/4"?

    Thank you so much for the clarification. I think the smaller strips make a big difference in a strip quilt. Yours is lovely.

    I've made several quilts this way. So much easier to do FMQ on the blocks and then attach them
    Forever in your debt Ditter!!!!

    Great tutorial. Were the black strips all the same width?

    Love the tutorial. I decided some time ago to do my string quilts this way. No foundation needed. Quilt sandwich is the way to go. Saves steps and no hand sewing. Gets rid of lots of scraps and scraps of batting. Size of blocks is determined by how big my batting scraps are.

    Thanks for the great tutorial. I really want to make one with my Oh So Many scraps. I should go quite fast after the cutting is done.
