    When you start using the selvedges, do you use a foundation square kinda like making a string quilt?

    No seam allowance just stitched as close to 'sealed' edge then just overlapped the next piece! (Clear as mud???)

    Really pretty. Need to add that to my "to do" list. I love making the string quilts, so need to do this as well. Thanks for sharing.
