What are you most proud of? I like the color combinations. I also managed to use lots of scraps.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I did not measure enough, so the strips ended up being misaligned - different widths of strips would have been more fun, plus the alignment would not be an issue at all! Next time...

I love the colors. How big are the squares?

Hi, I cut the strips 8x2.5 inches. I trimmed the strips after piecing them, for a finished size of 7x2 inches. This allows for for 1/4 seam allowances and 1/2 inch trimming. The trimming was necessary because my piecing is not perfect. The sashing was also cut at 2.5 inches, this then gave the same width as the finished strips. I picked the dimensions purely because I liked the balance between the length & width. The strips were pieced until it matched the length of the bed plus some overhang. The fished quilt measures 80x90 inches. The border was cut by dividing the leftover grey fabric into four strips (no science here!).
