The next step is to make strip sets of all of your strips. Each strip set needs to contain (2) 1 1/2 inch strips, and (3) 2 1/2 inch strips. I went ahead and layed each set out, just to make sure I had them all. In the scrappy version, I wanted to make sure I didn't get stuck with all 5 strips being the same color.
Then I layed them over my stack of *keep warm* quilts, because I could, and because it is my house and I am staking my place in it *giggle*
The next step was to sit down and sew - Sew the sets together using 1/4 inch seams. Each strip set should measure 8 1/2 inches wide. If they don't - check your seam allowances, your ironing, or eat more chocolate. Chocolate is the cure all.
Iron the sets. I ironed them to all one side.
