SPICE DROP uses 14 Fat Quarters of some favorite fabrics and an extra 5/8 yd for binding. The quilt finishes 54"x 72".
When top was finished it just screamed curtain. I can see maybe adding one more brick in length and a few more rows in width. It would make a great shower curtain or sliding glass door drape.

This quilt took just the one pack of 40 2 1/2" strips--in this case Hoffman Bali Brown Sugar. I picked out 8 "solids", 4 each color, for the rows of squares. I was totally pleased with the effect of the solid squares. I can also see choosing fabrics for a 4-Patch checkerboard effect, or some kind of gradation.
It finishes 46" x 64". You could make it a tad wider if you max out what is left from the strip sets of Stripes after you cut off the 2 10" pieces for the outside rows.
Additional fabric is just 1/2 yard for binding, though you could certainly add borders to make it bigger.
