Here's what I did to make the quilt top larger. First I added a white border (sashing) around the whole thing, and then I added these big coffee-brown blocks (left over from a previous place mat project).
I decided to go all the way with the different offset (width) on either side:

This is what happens when you sit on a rickety old table, trying to get a different angle for your photos:
That's it for now! Quilt top is done!
Measurements are now 180 cm x 160 cm (70 inch x 63 inch) - very lap-quilt worthy :-)
Quilt top was made from 100% scrap fabric from my stash, from previous projects.

Obviously the next step is to lay out a quilt back, batting, and the quilt top on top of it, and quilt the three layers. I don't have enough fabric for a quilt back, though, and I thought it would be good to use flannel anyway. That'll have to wait for my next trip to the quilt fabric store...
Till then, I can practice other free motion quilting designs - it would be nice to try something new for this quilt.
