My strata was 120 strips wide. I had to coax myself to start cutting. By looking at the strata's in the book I thought my 120 wide strata would make a huge quilt. Not so. There's lots of waste cutting on the bias and cutting quarter pie shapes and their counterpart. I didn't really have it thought out as to how it was going to work, light and dark, different colors. I mostly tried to put opposites together for contrast.
Now I have to decide the layout and nothing seems to be jumping out at me.
