Default large lap top pieced

I was thinking over sized lap quilt-but now maybe I should add more rows and make it a bed quilt.What would you do? What ever I decide has to wait-doing a craft show next weekend-have to start sorting and getting ready for that now-no more sewing for a week.

I love it. I love the combination of colors and placement of squares.
You have a lot of negative space to do you magic in quilting.
Thanks for sharing..

It's very pretty whatever you decide to do with it!

Maybe do a row of prairie points all the way around, to lay on a wide border? Just pick one of the colors in your quilt, other than maybe one of the cheddar colors...I'd pick one that isn't used quite as much for the border. Love your quilt!

I think this would be great as a bed quilt! I love the look of this with all the fabrics you used.

It's great. I'd go for a bed size. The colors are perfect for a transitional seasonal quilt. Looks great anytime but especially August through November
