Default I will always double check my size

For Christmas I ordered some panels because I like the window quilts. I didn't look carefully and got one that was wide and not long. I was disappointed but I told myself just do your best. I hated it all the way thru and had many problems because it was doomed. For all the problems and mistakes it turned out pretty good. It could have been much worse for sure

Been there. Done that. I made a mistake on the sizes a blocks were supposed to be. I now have a quilt top that is big enough to cover an elephant.

you did a great job with it. if you want to make it a bed-sized quilt, you could add a bookshelf underneath the bow window.

Very pretty and looks good on the back of your couch. Nice size to cuddle up with and watch a movie.
