I made the strips using 2 dark and a white strip. It looked so boring. I just could not make it as a rail fence so I cut them into squares and put them right side together making sure the lines were perpendicular. I sewed all around the square and cut it into 4 triangles and pressed them open. This is what I ended up with.
It made an unusual block. I sewed them all together and ended up with this!
I used the extra strips to make the border. I think it looks pretty good.
It is about 45" x 43".
