    I also could not find the tutorial on QB site. But the prior message on this gave this reference http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TNE3As-yctA. It is understandable, just does not give measurements, gotta buy the "Kit". If anyone has more information, I sure would appreciate it as well. Thanks.

    You don't have to buy the kit. I bought just the pattern from them a while ago--of course it's on my "to do" list.

    They really are easy to do. The one I did was 1 1/2" strips of 8 different fabrics. the strips are sewn into sets and cut 11 3/4" for large triangle and 7 1/2" for small triangle. Hope this info helps but I have been told there are different measurements depending on the pattern. Same design, different names. New Orleans Puzzle, Crazy Eights, Strata Star and probably others I don't know about. Hugs

    The link given by Woody is the best tute I've seen anywhere. Roolen is a member of QB from Russia.

    I have made several using Roolen's site. I think she did a wonderful job walking me through the process. I still have the tape marks on my 12 1/2 inch square ruler and plan to make more. They are stunning jaw droppers.I have given them as gifts, I need to make myself one.

    I would like to know if one could make the Strata Star from a Jelly Roll? I have a jelly roll here with beautiful fabric (Moda) and I would like to use it for something special. Where could I get just the pattern (easy)? Thanks ever so. Edie

    I have the pattern, and it is not difficult and so clever! This is on the list of my future projects.

    I went to that site and was thoroughly confused.....no dimensions, no measurements..........could not figure it out at all.....I really like the way it looks...but those directions were more confusing to me than helpful.........sorry

    I love Roolen's tute. Easy to understand once you find out where to cut the smaller triangles. She kind of leaves them out until later, but they are cut from the leftovers of the bigger triangles. I love this block.

    My Table Topper

    This pattern can be made with however many strips you want to use. Mine is about 45 inches finished. My strips were cut 1 1/2 inches and I used 7 strips. I found to cut the small triangles at each end of the strata and the larger triangles in between saved fabric. I didn't bind mine but sewed lining, batting and top and turned it. I didn't have a pattern but used the you tube video as a guide. I've made three so far and have another one cut ready to sew.

    I hope these pictures help some. They really aren't hard. I copied a picture from the internet and used it to refer too. Happy sewing.

    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    I think you can make it any size you want. It depends on how wide your strip sets are. That's the only limiting factor.
