Originally created from a strip kit, the quilt uses 2 1/2" wide strips cut across the width of the fabric in an assortment of colors and values. The placement of the values modifies the look to give you the impression of those tall, lovely hollyhocks. The borders use strips to create an interwoven effect circling the garden. While a design wall is helpful it is not a requirement. Lap quilt is especially nice for the slightly taller recipient! Finishes to approximately 54" x 74".
