Working on the flip side. Strips, strips, and more strips. I like this. No math! And the only way to go is using the serger! If you were using the strip method in a quilt, you wouldn't have to, because your raw edges get sandwiched and are out of sight. But since the raw edges of the duvet are going to be "available" I needed to finish the edges. That's a lot of edges to finish and serging really cut down my time! Thanks for letting me borrow it, Mom!
Ok, I didn't exactly follow the directions for the strips. Instead of sewing the entire batch together into one enormously long piece and then starting the match/sew/cut process, I did it in smaller sections. Then sewed the four individual sections together. Hind sight says, "I wish I would have followed the directions so I don't have verticle seams showing." But I still like the way it turned out and I would definitly use this strip piecing method again.
