That is one of our favorite background options. It is a MODA fabric and we usually have it in stock so feel free to contact us anytime! Joanna

Susan- The linen I used was from my stash but since I started that quilt, I have gotten my hands on some amazing linen feeling and look alike fabrics from MODA. Here are 4 that I love: Crossweave 12119-53 [ a bit darker than mine but that wonderful chambray woven feel], Crossweave 12120-52 [very similar in color but with a rougher weave in it for added texture, Weave 9898-78 a great color and feel in a printed fabric that looks like its woven, Rustic Weave 329-55-55 a printed fabric to look like a really rustic, rough weave, fantastic texture! Hope that helps!

Trying to figure out if I have the fabrics to kit it but if I do, it won't be for another week or so as I am leaving to go out of town today!

Not sure what you mean by all made from strips? It is pieced horizontally, so no settings or anything like that. It is one simple block that is repeated with an alternate. It is a simple construction pattern but does need to be laid out so you need to have a bigger space to work with. Try it, I think you will really enjoy the process! Joanna
