The 1st 2 rows I got from Connecting Threads. I got 2 rolls (24 strips each) of the 1st row and 4 jelly rolls (24 strips each) of the 2nd row. The Blues I got from my local quilt store. They will cut any combination of colors you want. This has 40 strips(2 of each color).
Mandy, thanks for answering TcMay's question for me. Do you all think the blues would look good with a yellow square between them or just keep it blue and white with white squares? I also think I'm going to cut the strips to a 22" length.This message has been edited. Last edited by: indycatCarol,
Have you seen the strips joined with a diamond shape instead of a square? Really nice looking. If not using a piece to join the strips, I like the ones I have seen that are joined at an angle like binding. Just a thought.

I like both combinations...would depend on the purpose for me. If I wanted cool and restful...just blue and white. With some zip (those are 2 of the 3 primary colors) I'd add some yellow...but not the pale one, I'd use a deeper one.
That reminds me of Myrna Loy in "Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House" "...not just any yellow...the color of your best butter..." LOVE THAT SCENE!!!
