    Looks okay to me. It's your quilt and can go anyway you want it to.

    oh no! Don't rip it out! It's great the way it is! I agree, if you want it bigger, add borders.

    I think it's beautiful! You can have the strips going up and down, or across. You can add a border to get it to whatever size you want. I love it!

    I'd just say "I designed it myself." The colors are bright and cheerful and it looks good.

    If you want horizontal stripes just turn it the other way. LOL I agrre with the posters that said add a skinny border and a wider one. But first try to square it up a bit.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with your quilt and for heaven's sake keep the ripper in the drawer! Just made two of these. I turned it with stripes horizontal, added a 1" black border and then a wider border. These are great!

    Don't rip, it looks good. I like what RUSewing said about finishing it. Haven't seen fabrics that nice in our Walmart.

    I did the same thing because I had extra strips. I decided to cut off strips 4" wide and enough strips to go around whole quilt like piano keys. I think it turned out great with that new look.

    I personally love the way it looks & would leave it as is. A border & ta da! I have a couple of jelly rolls that I want to use this weekend to make a couple of JRR. The thing that I wonder about, tho is (don't laugh... I', kinda nala about this sort of thing) is how do you keep all the designs going the right direction?

    I hadn't thought of it that way. Plus, if you made it out of black fabric, you'd nearly disappear! LOL!

    So the "correct" number of strips to use is 40? I'd planned to throw a couple of extras into mine (of the border fabric just to sorta tie it in more). I'd just hoping all my miters go the right direction. I marked them with a marker, but knowing me...

    Another size question... can you use 40 21" 2.5" strips to make a baby-sized quilt? That was a brilliant I'd had (haven't done it yet as I'm still scouting the perfect jelly roll for it).
