On the Side

I like everything about the design of this quilt except for one thing.

If I made it this way, it would be 72" wide by 90" tall. Which is bigger than I want to make. Bigger than is comfortable to use.  However...

If I trimmed the design down a bit it becomes 72" wide by 66" wide. Which doesn't really work unless you flip it on its side.

So I did.

Is it going to be "toothy-edged"?

Nope

Real nice idea!

I love the green in the center, it gives the eye a focal point to start at before the eye begins moving outward .

This looks like it should be made of glass pieces, hanging in a window.

Size is such an important consideration. I'm glad you figured it out before sewing this together.
