Here is a quick visual of how I made this quilt. I cut my strips 3.5" x 11". I pieced them light, then dark, then light. For the size quilt I made, I connected 11 strips per row, starting and ending each row with a half strip. I had to supplement with various neutrals from my stash. This pattern leaves you with almost 500 bonus half square triangles. Be sure to save these for a future project.
