|Upper section has the extra pieces added to the outer edges.|
As I was making the blocks and setting them on the design wall I decided that I needed to add a little extra row to finish them off. I think it does make a difference and I think I like it much better this way.
Of course, that meant that I needed to cut and make a whole slew of extra 4 patches and 'triangle in a square' pieces. But I think it was definitely worth the effort! I have all of the blocks made except I still need to add the extra section to the rest of the outer edges and that won't take too long. I hope to have this top finished and ready for quilting over the next couple days.
