Come Said the Wind Lap Quilt Idea
I received an e-mail this week from someone who was interested in larger version of Come Said the Wind. After a little bit of playing in Electric Quilt, I came up with a variation on the quilt that would work. I didn't change the size of the blocks, but just added more "borders" that repeated earlier elements in the quilt.
The original quilt design is 33" x 33":
The lap size quilt design:
To get those on point maple leaf blocks to still work at a 3" finished size, I needed to add a 1/2 inch (finished size) border to the wall quilt before the next round of maple leaves. I then added another 1/2 inch border after that (which was necessary for the final rows of maple leaves to fit across the top and bottom).
The solid borders are all 3" finished sizes.
The final size of the adjusted quilt is 57-1/2" x 67".
I hope this gives you enough information if you wish to make the lap quilt from the pattern. Please let me know if you have additional questions.
I know this has probably inspired some of you to make this quilt. So I've decided to extend my Come Said the Wind Digital sale for another week. (Note that the instructions are for the two smaller quilts. However, you can easily modify these on your own for this throw quilt.)

I hate to be knit-picky, but isn't the word "o're" supposed to be "o'er" in the poem? That is, if the abbreviation is supposed to be for "over".

Judy -- you are technically correct. However, the "o're" was the spelling used in early renditions of the poem. I decided to stick with that. Maybe we can consider it "old English".
