I have had a lot of people ask me about this block. I can't explain it in words, it is easier for me to draw it...I hope you understand how this is made. Of course, you can use whatever size strips you like....as long as they are not the same. Or if you do use the same size, that will create another block entirely. If you do makea quilt with this block, please let me know, so I can see a photo of it!
