    The directions I have is for a 3 x 4 quilt measuring 38 x 50 without borders. You need at least 1/2 yard for sashing strips and a fat quarter for cornerposts, 12 fat quarters or 6 half yards or any combo to make 3 yds total fabric. cut all the strips in various widths from 1 1/2" to 4". All the strips need to be at least 21" long. Sew the strips of varying widths into a strip set until you get a strip set that is just over 10" wide. Cut the strip set into 2 squares 10 x 10. Put the squares together just like in the previous directions from this post. When these are sewn together and cut, these
    will be the 4 pieces that will become 1 square that should measure about 13". There are lots of ways that you can
    arrange the 4 pieces. They all have the same fabrics but they look different as you move them around.
    When I made mine, I had that piece of floral fabric that I liked so I picked all my fabrics to go with the floral.

    I made some squares with this technique and found that when working with large size squares (12 1/2" in my case), I was having some trouble with the squares going wonky on me -- unless you are really good with handling bias stretch, I would suggest using a foundation of paper or fabric.

    This is a great project to work on in between the larger ones. Instant gratification, and a GREAT way to clean out all the small bits of leftovers. Saw one made all in Christmas fabrics -- very stunning.

    I use lots of fabric sizing prior to cutting and then again during pressing when I am working with bias cuts.

    Yep -- LOTS of fabric sizing would take care of the problem. I wouldn't recommend trying without it.

    This Missouri Star Quilt Company video shows the same technique using jelly rolls (WOF). You could cut your own strips/scraps too and make any size blocks!

    What would the opinion from the group be, if you used a muslin foundation piece in sewing the strips together would it make the quilt too heavy, with using say Warm and Natural batting with backing?

    Would it be better just to use a lot of sizing as suggested by a couple of the other members said?
