This quilt is called "Hanging Gardens" and was designed by Georgette Dell'Orco of Cozy Quilt Designs.  It is meant for 2 1/2 inch strips.  I ran across a 30 strip 5 x 22 bundle of cuts from a quilt show I had attended a couple of years ago and thought it was time to put them to use.  This is a twin size quilt, as I only had a potential of 30 full strips after I cut them in half, one piece was black, so I took it out of the stack and was down to 29.  The border fabric was in my stash for about the last 4 years, so it was time for it to go as well.  It's a fast quilt to piece...I started Friday at 5:00 pm and finished Sunday morning at 12:35 am.  (Let's say I was possessed and let that go!  LOL)  The background has a very light beige print on it, but I think the quilt will have more character if I have the long armer do it with a varigated thread.

Your quilt is beautiful, Carlene.  I've seen this pattern and admired it (in fact I think I clipped a picture and put it in my "would like to make this someday" binder)!  I love your color selection and the borders are so special.  

However you quilt it (longarmer or DYI), you can't go wrong!

Thanks, Jeanne!  That was a bundle of Jinny Beyer prints.  Can't go too far wrong when the strips are already coordinated.  A queen sized quilt top (one more row to the side) can be made with one jelly roll, according to the pattern.
