The strips were different lengths and widths. I threw around the idea of some sort of log cabin version. But wasn't really happy with how that was going to look. In the end I decided to just start sewing three or four strips together, aiming for at least a 6 inch wide strip set. I didn't think to take any pictures of the process sorry. I then cut them into 6 inch blocks, I also cut a 6 inch square of background fabric square to make HST's.

My daughter played with a layout, we decided ( after much debate) to leave it offset. A two and a half inch border of yellow followed by a three and a half inch piano key border using up the rest of leftovers.
I think the yellow borders helped pull everything together.
It finished up at 50 inches x 59 inches.
It has been a bit since I last posted, and a lot can happen in a short time. Please give your loved ones a hug as we don't know what the next day can bring.
