Looks great with those solids! How long does it take the piece all those squares??!!

@ Jamie Lee - The pattern called for cutting squares which I, as a strip quilter, refused to do! I strip pieced the blocks and didn't cut any squares.

I really, really like this quilt, do you think you may be doing a tutorial for the strip piecing? Or, how many strips make one square? 8? 10? 12? I can't find the corners... That is the whole idea, right?! I really love it.

@ Helen,
The pattern is from the Moda Bake Shop as noted above. The original pattern looked insane having you cut 800 pieces - No Way, I said, not in this modern day of strip piecing!! I cut the jelly roll strips in half to make it more scrappy. I also find it easier to keep the seams straight when pressing a 21" strip as compared to a 42" strip. Then I sewed strip sets of 1 colored / 2 whites (actually one 4-1/2" white strip), 2 colored / 1 white, and 3 colored. Then I subcut them and sewed them into 9-patch blocks. Make 99 more blocks, and you're set for a quilt this size!

Hope this helps!

Your quilt looks gorgeous. I love the modern twist of having it radiate out from the corner - very cool!
