Step 1:

Arrange 4 jelly roll strips to make a unit.  Place the 2 strips with constrasting colors right side together, then sew on one side. Do the same for the other two. Once done, press the fabric and sew them together. Make sure not to put the white part on the ends.

Step 2:

Get 2 pieces of 2-inch white strips and sew on each side. Press the unit to flatten.

Step 3:

Trim off the excess and cut them into 5-inch segments.

Step 4:

Sew 2 contrasting strips by placing their right sides together and cut into 8-inch segments.

Step 5:

Get the 2-inch white strips and sew on the sides of the 8-inch segments. Do the same with the 5-inch segments. The 5-inch segments will have white borders but the 8-inch segments will only have it on the sides.
