PARADISE is a very similar block to IVORY PALACE--just done in 2 1/2" strips. Simply add 2 yards of Background and 5/8 yard of Binding. It finishes 58"x 75" with no borders. You will pre-cut all of the pieces, then just sit and sew. I think you could play with colors and shading in the blocks or rows. On the cover quilt, I picked my darkest pieces for the tallest strips and shaded towards lighter ones for the smaller pieces.
