I really like the method used in this pattern. It's very quick and easy. You sew three strips together- two medium or dark strips with a light strip in between. Then press, and subcut into 5 1/4" pieces. Then you split those subcut units right down the middle of the light strip. Cool, huh? The only drawback is partial seaming... but it's really no biggie!
The hardest part to me is the strip matching part... selecting the one light and two medium/dark strips to be sewn together. That takes almost more time than sewing them together!
Here's the pile of strips all sewn together ready to be pressed. I really love these beautiful fabrics. The colors are so vibrant and fun!
