So I added strips the length of the panel to the top and bottom. I wanted a more rustic look so I took some smaller strips and sewed them on top of the patchwork leaving a frayed edge. Then I added two strips to the sides to make it just the right size.
I love this quilt, it is perfect for a little nap on the couch, reminds me of Africa, and goes very well with my living room. Granted, this is my old living room, I don't have the rug or curtains in the new place, I haven't decided yet if I want them up.
Happy travels to you all!
