    Norban that is a nice variety you have there. A touch of pink will make it sparkle, I am thinking.

    Lay your strips out. Lower your stitch length to about 1.5. Sew the strips together
    making sure that you have them in the right order. (I used orange as my Med).
    Strip
    1: A
    2: B,H
    3: C,H,H
    4: D,H,H,G
    5: E,H,H,G,H
    6: F,H,H,G,H,H

    Thanks omak, it was hard picking fabric when you didn't know what was coming next. So we'll see!

    Press seams open, when pressing, unless you trimmed down a bit, they should meet in
    the middle on the one inch strips, but not overlap, good way to check if everything is
    turning out the right size. (you can press each seam as you go along or all at once at
    the end of putting them together. )

    Special instructions if your strips are in more than one piece.

    Sew until the one strip ends, add on the next piece and carry on, if there is another strip after, sew in all along the pieces, joining then together. ( you can get the ends closer than this, I was trying to make sure that you could see what I was doing. )
    
      
    *Careful when sewing the strips together, it is easy to stretch one while sewing, when you press you will find that they have a tendency to curve to one side.

    When you press it is easy to check if your seams are 1/4 inch, the edges will meet but not overlap. Try and be as accurate as you can be, of course we all now things match up better that way.

    Out of each of your 3 1/2 in strips ( they should all be that wide) Cut in one inch increments. You need 36 of each color combination. There should be a little left over of each strip, ease for cutting mistakes and joins. Be sure to clean up your end before starting your cuts to make sure that they are straight.



    While cutting your strips, you can easily along the way verify if you have done an accurate job, the light strips end up 1/2 inch so easy to line up on your ruler when cutting.
