Hugs & Kisses is a great project to use pre-cut 2.5 in. strips. The quilt is named for the X's and O's in the design; it is also referrd to as the "star crossed lovers quilt." The pattern recommends the Creative Grids Lazy Angle Ruler (CGR3754) -- without this tool, you will need one piece of template plastic 8 in. x 10 in. to make templates from the pattern.
