Black and White and Lime 1600 inch quilt

Even though i cut two 3" strips from all the fabrics in the Cumberland Collection line....i had 36 different pieces....the quilt top still turned out kind of small. it is about 60x80

The darks and lights didn't integrate the way i would have liked them to. 

I had 3 or 4 strips that were shorter than the usual 40" but that didn't seem to help.

But i like the lime sort of wakes it up.

I just added another row of white and black along the edges to make it a bit wider. and, yes, i should have done that before i added the lime....but then i wouldn't have had enough of the lime to go around. i guess i could have put something else in the corners. is what it is and .... done is good.   still lots of those black and white fabrics. gotta find something else to do with them.

Do you think of the 1600" quilt when you need something in a hurry?  this was literally done in an afternoon.
