I bought Tonga Treat Strips, 40 -2.5"x40" strips, there is 2 each of 20 patterns. Question is when I sew these strips together since there is 2 of each, is there a certain way I should sew these together so I don't end up with like strips next to each other? I just can't wrap my brain around this to figure it out, hope you know what I'm talking about. Thanks for your help.

Honestly I don't see how you do it with out the same prints being close or sometimes right next to each other. I have made 2 of them and couldn't see anyway around it.

Would it help if you left them like they are packaged and alternate which end of the pack you grab them from?

I added strips to the quilt once I was done with oodles from the jelly roll and then I could plan it a bit but the doubling method did end up with same strips close to each other ..Like a potluck where everyone brings dessert or a sald and no casseroles.. I thought it was fun anyway...

i am thinking of doing one but cutting each strip in half and sewing 22" strips together. I like the idea of shorter strips of the same fabric. I'll sew them together on the diangonal. Will take a bit longer but I like the idea that they will "flow" better.

I read some where if you cut 10" off the first strip this will help offset them.
