Here's what I came up with. The quilt top measures 46 x 68--a nice size. It called for one more row--but I thought that would make it too long. It didn't need that row to complete the design--it kind of made it incomplete. I added it on the Sunflower one, but thought then it was a tad long. I'll add the Sunflower picture too.

Edited to add: The strips in the Sunflower one follow the directions- 1.75 in strips-with 6.75 in squares. The Sunny Day strips are 1.5 and the squares are 5.5. I like the smaller size better. :-)

This makes three tops done to take to the quilters. :roll:

I really like them both. But I'd have to go with the measurements for the Sunflower one. I'd never get the 1.745 consistently. I'm assuming that's a scant 1 3/4? I don't think I have a ruler that's marked off that way :)
Very nicely done.
