    Don't know if you ever got an answer to your question ... You can sew the strips together and cut the square, but then you have a lot of bias edges and you have possible stretching to contend with. Using a foundation, whether paper or cloth, provides stability. You can also use short lengths of strips.

    I used cloth as the foundation of mine and just trimmed them up when I sewed on the backing.

    You know, where I live is such a small community that our phone books are very small. Too small to use for this project. Boo hoo. This looks like an awesome way to string quilt. And it's not wasteful, like I would have to use foundation paper or copy paper. Crap on a stick. Maybe there is a way I can find an old "big" telephone book at a second hand store or something? Our's are about one third the size of a regular phone book and very thin. Very thin. Small small community. Wonder if I'm in a big city if I could get a hold of one of their phone books, one of their old ones? Any ideas?
