For this quilt, I used this collection called "2WENTY-THR3E" by Moda.  There were 42 strips, with only a few repeats.  Each strip measured 2.5" x 42". For the border and binding, I used yardage from JoAnn Fabrics and Crafts Store.
The pattern for this quilt is called "Parquet" and a friend showed me a block, but she had lost the actual pattern itself, so I had to be a little creative.  My friend told me to use colors randomly, but that really goes against the way my brain is wired, so I created an Excel spreadsheet and carefully planned out the placement of each piece.  As you can see, I really, really pre-planned this project!  I wanted to be sure that no two fabrics that touched were the same!

The backing is a mottled yellow/gold flannel and was purchased from JoAnn Fabrics and Crafts Store.  

The finished size of the quilt is 52" x 72".

I used Warm and White batting, also purchased from JoAnn.  The quilting pattern is called "Lockets" and I purchased it in digital form from Urban Elementz. The thread I used was YLI Pastels.

 Here are some photos of the quilt.
