Using the EQ quilt layout named 3″ and 10″ plain and pieced vertical strips, I reduced the size to 39 x 52 inches by narrowing and shortening areas. Therefore, the quilt needed fewer diamonds per strip, so I designed a 5-diamond block to fit the 40 inch long spaces. The border blocks are original with the idea of not having fabric in the white outer edges, thus leaving a pointy edged border for the quilt.
