I made mine in black-white-and-yellow, based on a Jelly Roll from Benartex fabrics, "Lemon Tree."
Ninety 8" blocks and borders resulted in a quilt that measures 92" X 82" -- big enough for a full-size bed.
When I first started putting the blocks up on the design wall, I thought the tessellating pattern wouldn't show. But with all the blocks together, I like the secondary pattern of light crosses:
I am searching for a black, white, and yellow quilting weight thread to quilt this. If I can't find it, I'll use black. Or maybe yellow? What do you think?
