Jeannie, I don't see why you couldn't; I have never tried it though.

If fabric is approx 42 inches wide, why would you only cut a 22 inch square?? why not a 42 inch square and get maybe 12 yards out of continuous cut?? or am I just not getting this concept??

Cooperative Extension Service FactSheet from University of Kentucky

Jeannie, you'd get 6 yds of 2 1/4" tape from a 22 inch square of fabric using the the method shown on the site.  The instructions are very similar to the ones on this video. It also give you an equation to figure out the yardage from a square of fabric. Hope this helps!

What would you do if you needed a lot more length than you would get out of this one rectangle?? I too love your tutorials!! Always so easy to follow! thanks for doing them

Fantastic! I am quite new to sewing and this is such a brilliant trick of getting lots of bias in one go. Thank you so much for sharing. :0)
