This is based on "Volume in Scraps" from Scrap Republic by Emily Cier. Her quilt in the book is a lot smaller, so I made 25 columns of 4.5" strips. They are 104" long and it is just over 100" wide. Also, since I had loads of fabric and wasn't making scraps, I pieced my color families as she suggests and then chopped and pieced the strips - I didn't need the shorter strips together. Mine's not as blended as the original but I really like it. Since this is the backing for "Lollypop Trees", which measures 94" square, the edges of this quilt will end up being cut off. This took a solid week to piece - I listened to The Coral Thief (great!) and The Cave Girl (ridiculous!) while piecing it.
I'm now going to make a tuffet!
