    Hi to all!
    In answer to questions I used a Bali Pop and added 2 1/2" squares at the end of each strip as I sewed it together which gives you 1 VERY long strip, then you fold it in half and sew one of the longest seams you will ever sew, cut it at the end you will have 2 rows, and fold it again and sew another long seam, which will be half of the first gtiving you 4 strips together, repeat this about 5 times depending on the width and length you want it. Then add your borders.
    Hope this helps!

    1600 is how many inches you have once you sew all the strips into one long strip. This is a VERY fun top to make

    I found this again after reading another post this morning. If you don't mind answering my question, it would be appreciated!
    How much fabric did you have for the purple border and the little squares (approximately)? Am definitely going to try this soon!
    Thanks in advance!

    Sorry, am having a brain fog here!!!
    If I remember I cut 5 6 1/2" strips for border, and 3 2 1/2" then subcut into 2 1/2" squares. Maybe a yard and a quarter, I did have some left overs. You don't have to make the border that wide if you don't want to.
    Hope this helps!

    Terrific, I have been thinking about doing something like this with flannel jelly rolls I have but wasn't sure exactly how to do it. This is a great guide for me.

    It's beautiful!
