Pick one rectangular fabric strip and place it vertically in the center. Then, press the fabric strip neatly with an iron. Cut off the excess strip if necessary.  Place another fabric strip of a lighter value on top of the first strip, right sides facing together.  Pin the left sides in place and sew a straight line on the edge of the right side of both fabrics using a ruler. Flip the 2nd fabric the right way and press it in place. Repeat the process with the other fabric strips. Layer the strips as you want by following your creativity. You can also use smaller scraps of fabric.

When you reach the end of one side, turn the whole fabric around and do the second side. When done, it’s time to start quilting.
