So I sliced it the other way and flip flopped the strips.
I think I made it ugly. I did learn a few things.
I should have started with all different widths of strips with the fat quarter. I cut them all 2 inches to start with.
And I didn't need to put that blue border on the edges
before cutting and sewing everything together.
So what to do with it next?? I'll think on that a bit.
