    This is a great project to work on in between the larger ones. Instant gratification, and a GREAT way to clean out all the small bits of leftovers. Saw one made all in Christmas fabrics -- very stunning.

    I use lots of fabric sizing prior to cutting and then again during pressing when I am working with bias cuts.

    Yep -- LOTS of fabric sizing would take care of the problem. I wouldn't recommend trying without it.

    Okay, this is one I can do, only because I need a few simple projects in my life right now. Thank you!

    This Missouri Star Quilt Company video shows the same technique using jelly rolls (WOF). You could cut your own strips/scraps too and make any size blocks!

    What would the opinion from the group be, if you used a muslin foundation piece in sewing the strips together would it make the quilt too heavy, with using say Warm and Natural batting with backing?

    Would it be better just to use a lot of sizing as suggested by a couple of the other members said?
