[QUOTE=Elaine433;5812853]I found that same pattern by another name a year ago. It called for cutting all the strips in different widths or just using up scraps. I made this quilt for my DIL last year for Christmas. If I can figure how to, I will post a picture.

I love the black sashing with the brights.

I really could use some advise..my sqs are about 15x15..alot of fabric and alot of time invested. Thanks for any advise that comes my way.
Elaine already suggested using sashing strips to connect these together. You can use a 1" sashing strip on both sides and not have to do anything with the batting, although one tut I saw recommended using the tape to attach the batting pieces together.

If you want to attach the pieces together without sashing strips, you'll need to cut off the excess batting before sewing them together, or just after.

Thanks for the directions. I hate using paper or muslin. This is what I was looking for.
