I misread it and only cut the side triangles in half rather than quarters. I love how it finished my quilt. In fact I decided to NOT add a border because I loved how it floated. I did have to recut my corners to make them larger but I love this top!
The little four patches were purchased at a retreat in Witchita Falls last year. It was a 50 cent bag of squares. I sewed the 4 patches last year. I also had a bolt of this great blue fabric that I bought for $1 a yard. So far I have about $2 invested in this quilt and I LOVE it!
I was planning to donate it but a fb friend or two commented on it. It may end up gifted to one of them.
