I saw this idea demoed on Missouri Star Quilt Co. video with Jenny using a layer cake.
Since I did not have a layer cake handy, I made this sample with leftover charm squares and some neutral yardage.
Had to watch the video several times to find the apot where she says place the top neutral strip with larger piece to the left. (note the red check fabric block)
I may do the next baby quilt this way with charm squares.
