    I am making my mother a sunbonnet sue quilt, but it is not your normal blocks. I need to make this bigger to cover a queen size bed. This pattern will make a 87" x 71 1/2" quilt. I would like it to be 109" x 93 1/2". The blocks are each cut to 11 1/2". I am adding the picture of what it is suppose to look like done and how it shows to assemble it. My question is, do I just add two more rows in the middle of the quilt, so rather then the middle ending with 4 sunbonnets, I would end with 5 in those rows? I hope I explained this good and the pictures helped. Thanks in advance for all your help.

    I would add to the row like you are suggesting, and if needed, perhaps add a bit of a border to bring it to the exact size you'd like.

    Agree with what has been posted and wanted to say, the SS on your bed is adorable. I like the change-up you are doing of one on point.

    That should work. I have looked at a couple of patterns I have, they are for smaller blocks but it works out the same when you are puttng it together.
