For Quilt (84"x96"):

  2. Mix the fabric pieces by sewing the 2-1/2" strip of a fabric #1 to a 1-1/2" strip of fabric #2, 1-1/2" strip of fabric #1, 1-1/2" strip of fabric #2, and finish with a 1-1/2" strip of fabric #1. This will make an 8-1/2" strip set. Make thirty-eight strip sets.
  3. Press and cut six 6-1/2" blocks from each strip set.
  4. Two-hundred twenty-four (224) blocks will be used for the quilt top. Arrange blocks as desired with the stripes going both horizontally and vertically in random fashion.
  5. Sew fourteen blocks together for each row. There will be sixteen rows.
  6. Sew the rows together to form the quilt top.
  7. Sandwich the backing, batting and top together and quilt as desired.
  8. Trim edges and sew on the binding.

For Shams (26"x20"):

  1. Cut six strips 10"x21".
  2. From backing cut 4 pieces 17"x21".
  3. Sew 3 strips together for each sham front.
  4. Sandwich the muslin, batting and top of each sham together and quilt as desired.
  5. Trim to 27"x21".
  6. To finish the shams, turn down one 17" wide side of each backing piece 1/2" and press. Turn down another 1/2", press and stitch.
  7. Lay front face down and pin 2 back pieces right sides up overlapping stitched edges.
