The finished quilt measures 48.5 inches x 48.5 inches. Add another row or two of blocks and some wide borders to make a full sized quilt. Another option for adapting the pattern to a larger finished quilt is to increase the size of the strips. These are 1″ wide, but would look just as stunning at 1.5″ or 2″ on a larger quilt.
