    It looks great. I think the question now is not "how to fix it" (that's been answered), but "which do I like the best"? Either will be very nice and I love the scrappy look. I like it without adding sashing.

    However you figure out to fix this one, your colors are great.

    I think it's lovely as it is. I wouldn't change anything. I would put a border on it after it's pieced, and quilt away. You are doing a great job with your tiny piecing!

    Use the sashing strips like MTS suggested. It looks like an easy way to get the top to look 'traditional' and you won't have to 'think' when you are making the rest of the blocks.

    Looking at the link you gave it looks like you followed the pattern correctly. The quilt will be beautiful when you finish. Be sure to post pictures when you are finished

    I would eliminate the row you folded back. While the original looked ok, I think you would hate it always looking like you did it wrong. Just my humble opinion. Your fabric selection looks wonderful.

    I would make the outside row of small squares smaller, so that when the big blocks are joined they make a small square same size as others if you wish to make quilt without sashing.
    Finished is better than a UFO
