I strip paper pieced this quilt using the wonderful 10" papers that Missouri star quilt company sells. I used my strip scraps and had so much, I made 2 more sets of blocks!By sashing the blocks, I could take the papers off before I started and didn't have to worry about the bias edges. It was great!
