I am making another of Moda's Avignon Picnic quilt. The last one I made I only used one jelly roll instead of two. This time I'm not using any jelly rolls.

Then you lay them out in alternating rows like this:
For my lap-size layout, I made twelve blocks with white centers and six blocks with white borders (plus four half blocks).
