This week of the GCQO has got me excited because it's all about finishing up our quilt tops! In a last minute switch up last week, I realized that a finished square quilt wouldn't make for much winter snuggling, so I took some advice from Amanda's early decision, and added a fifth row.
In order to add 4 more blocks, I used four more blue prints from Cuzco, plus four additional yellow and grey prints from Dena Fishbein's line Taza. I think this was a happy last minute switch up, and I really like how well balanced the colours are.
After adding a fifth row, I decided that I would forgo the borders listed in the original pattern, which will make my finished quilt 56 inches by 70 inches (or 4.6 feet by 5.8 feet). I'm hoping this will be a much snugglier winter throw size.
Sewing my blocks together this week was exciting, and I'm looking forward to next weeks backing, quilting, and binding!
