at least in size. I really love how it looks on our bed too. I saw a quilt similar to this on http://tallgrassprairiestudio.blogspot.com/ and just had to make one. I made 4 blocks approximately 26x29 inches. I love the random strips. (I have a lack of patience with matching corners so much.) Then added strips to each side. I had the hardest time finding the right color of aqua to coordinate with our bedroom. I eventually found a solid sheet at Target that I used for the back.
All I can say is that this thing better last a darn long time. It was really challenging to get quilted with my little machine. This is the 4th quilt I have entirely made on my own. I stitched the binding by hand. I love how nice it makes the quilt look from the top.
