Update on "What to do?"...What I did!
I decided to just add a border to the quilt in question. . It ended up being 58" X 74". An odd size however I am satisfied. It will be a great "sofa" quilt. Machine pieced, Framed 16 patch block woth an 5 1/2" unfinished border. I want to attempt to quilt this on my sewing machine. Thanks for all the suggestions. And yes, as usual my cat got into the picture bottom right. Barely can see him. My Schnauzer, P.T. wanted his picture taken so here he is, too. He is 11 yrs. old, diabetic, and soooo sweet! His food stains his mouth but he still is a handsome fella!
