You'll recall the AWESOME block piecing video from the 3 Dudes Quilt Shop that I posted awhile back (you can view it here if you missed it, or need a review). Well, I gave it a try and I'm glad I did!
I started with this set of Kaffe Fassett 2 1/2" strips that I bought from Jordan's shop on Ebay. It would be hard to make something ugly out of this fabric, really.
You can see that I added some dark strips of my own, to give the quilt a little visual depth.
If you start with pre-cut strips it goes incredibly fast!
One helpful hint not mentioned in the video: a little spray starch and a quick press with a hot iron before assembling the strips will help keep your seams straight (long strips of fabric tend to want to wiggle around!)
