It uses the fabric efficiently, like most of my designs. The leftover pieces make the quilt a little wider, a little nicer size. It still fits on a one-width back.
A couple weeks ago, I cut up loads of fabric from the Community Service closet into 9" strips for this quilt. Regular Quarter yards also work--just cut the strip in half to mix with half strips. Just by matching colors, I have some great quilts cut and read to sew. They take little more than an hour to piece once they are cut.
A little trick I use when pairing up the strip sets--- Divide the 6 fabrics into two groups of 3 that you like together. Then when sewing the strip sets, you have just 3 different pairs possible with each group. There is no thinking once you split them into 3's. No brainers are my kind of design choices.
