I watched the newest episode of "Quilty" and would like to make the quilt that Mary was showing.  My question is:  When joining the strips, does one sew them together always starting from the top of the quilt and sewing to the bottom?  Or should one sew one row from the top to the bottom of the quilt and the next row from the bottom to the top and rotate.  The reason I ask is that I made a strippy quilt once from leftover fabric and ended up with it looking a little curved instead of a nice square block.  Any advice?

Yes, do alternate your sewing direction.  Or sew together in sections, flipping the sections so you alternate directions.  Sew two rows together making them double rows, sew the double rows together, etc.
