Time to go BIGGER

I finally finished all my Flutterby blocks, but I think I need to go bigger.  As it now stands, all sewn together the quilt would measure 72" x 96" (once the final scrappy white border is included, which I haven't yet laid out below). 
Note to self - make it a priority to put up a design wall; this designing on the floor is for the birds!
If I add two more columns of blocks (28 blocks), it would measure 84" x 96", which is a much more usable size, don't ya think?  I'm donating the quilt to a silent auction fundraiser this fall, but to be honest, I think I'm going to bid on it.  I just love its scrappy loveliness!  And at the larger size, it would work perfectly on my bed!

I'm linking up with Oh Scrap and Monday Making.

A gorgeous quilt! My daughter ALWAYS tells me I need to make my quilts bigger, but sometimes I'm over it, or haven't any more blending fabric, or I simply like the quilt the size it is! Wonder if you will indeed go bigger :)

I am now dithering over how big to make a scrap quilt I am working on. It needs borders but that might make it too big. I like the way those scraps work together.

I have not made a big quilt in ages. Go big or go home! I’m looking forward to seeing what you decide to do. Your scraps always look great!

That is a beautiful quilt! I love the motion and flow of it. And those blocks...are gorgeous!

Let other people bid on it, and plan on making one for yourself in the future. You can even start making some of the blocks when you make these additional ones now. Sometimes when I make a quilt for a raffle/auction, I make double the blocks at the time, or cut double the squares/strips needed, so I can make a second one quickly, for myself or another raffle/auction.

It's lovely!

Looks great. I've started making quilts for my family reunion. I'm making 2 of each quilt, one for the auction, to help pay for the next reunion, and one for me, since I made both quilts, and I don't want to bid on my own quilt.

One of my favorite quilt patterns and it is on my bucket list! Yours is gorgeous!
