I'm making this one for my sister, who loves navy and pink. I'm aiming to make a quilt for each of my 5 sisters this year, though some of them are being very indecisive about it, so I might not make my self-imposed deadline :)
I wanted to maximize my Gooseberry Jelly Roll (by Lella Boutique), and doing 12" blocks as the original pattern directs leaves quite a bit of jelly strip left over. So, I cut all the strips in half (approx. 21") and used 4 prints and 4 whites for each block, which gives you a 16" finished block. With one jelly roll and 3 yds of background yardage, you can get a 4 by 5 block quilt, which comes to 64" by 80", a very decent throw size, or it could squeak by as a twin.
I think I actually like the 8 by 8 blocks better than the originals, as it makes the pattern slightly less busy. I hope that answers most questions about this quilt! It is one of my very favorites and I can't wait to gift it.
