Half a quilt top

Well, I went ahead and assembled the squares I had finished that were done with the ''Snow'' background.  I separated out the ones with the 'bleached white' background and I think I will make a baby quilt with those instead of using them in this top.  I just couldn't mix the two!  So, I ordered more 'Snow' and another jelly roll.  I am going to go with 8x8 blocks I think.  My blocks are 9'' finished, smaller than the pattern calls for because I didn't want the points of the intersecting triangles sticking out like in the original pattern - so that is a 72'' square quilt - so I MIGHT make it 10x10 instead - or maybe a border in snow, not completely sure yet....  I know only 72'' square isn't big enough for my taste....
