Making a Quilt-step 2

After cutting 6" wide strips of varying lengths, lay them out in a pleasing order- stacking like values together.
I had 2 dark reds and 3 sand prints. Then I just start sewing them together with 3/8" seam allowance.
Sometimes I'll rearrange them to add interest. I aim for a visually pleasing quilt, not an exact repeating pattern. Roll the strip up and don't press it yet! Next time- sewing it all together!
