    Hi I followed instructions from a book bySharon Pederson called Reversible quilts.
    You basic cut a square of wadding/batting then cut your strips at different widths and a triangle,then it's really just flip and stich

    That is only a very short version

    I posted a tute in the tutorial section.

    I will put all four blocks together to cover the top of a double bed and then a center strip border to frame and then not sure on the other borders yet. Maybe a piano key border to tie in some more scraps.

    Finished top!

    Here is the finished top. I am quilting it now. Hope to have it done by June for graduation.

    Thank you Patrice J for explaining to me how to resize the pictures!

    Thank you to Pittsburg Pam for the tute on how to miter corners. First time!

    Don't know if you ever got an answer to your question ... You can sew the strips together and cut the square, but then you have a lot of bias edges and you have possible stretching to contend with. Using a foundation, whether paper or cloth, provides stability. You can also use short lengths of strips.
