Option 1, for this design, is to finish sewing these large groups to each other and leaving it at that for a 66" x 73" throw.
This is what I originally intended to do and the colouring sheet that Rachel gave us is not too far away from my actual quilt top. I was going for frosty with hints of a winter fire in the darker coal colours and pink and oranges scattered about the place.
Don't ask me where the green Seafoam comes into the winter palette! Not sure what I was thinking there at all.
Looking at it like this though, it feels unfinished to me so I'm adding in the optional 9" diamond row on the bottom.
I think it looks much more balanced with it than without and gives me a chance to pop in more of that Seafoam towards the bottom right!
