    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..

    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!

    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

    There's some pretty colours in your quilt. If you have the fabric, I would continue with more blocks, it's lovely

    It's very pretty with nice colors and interesting placement of squares and rectangles. It makes a great canvas for quilting designs!

    I would go ahead with bed size. It's very pretty, love the orange. I would love to display that on my bed.

    I love it just the way it is. From the looks of it, you're one or two columns short of a twin size, but adding to the side is always tricky, I wouldn't risk it.

    You just about have a bed quilt! Can you do another row of blocks to add width? Great colors. Nice job.

    I'm thinking bed quilt. Don't you love that cheddar orange colour fabric? Years ago I wouldn't have looked at it along with neon yellow and green. I love them now! Your quilt top is great!
