I made a generous drop on the sides. My husband likes to rollover and roll up in the quilt.
The reason as I have mentioned before is because they are colors I wouldn't normally use for a quilt. I had help from my Mom and some of the scraps she had to make this quilt.
There is a drop on the top that will cover the pillow. So it is more of a spread than just a quilt. With the red brown walls and a tea dyed bedskirt I am making it will look pretty masculine. Sometimes the ugliest pieces can turn out to be a beautiful quilt. I never thought it would be as good looking as it is. I wanted something masculine for that bedroom. Now I have another one started for my son. I will not put the brown border in the quilt it will be all the blocks and hopefully he will like it. He has a queen sized bed and he is tall and rolls up in a quilt too. Chris
