"Just Because" Quilt Progress

After doing all manner of mathematical acrobatics, I have determined I have enough fabric to add a row onto the Just Because quilt. I have some sort of weird phobia about square quilts. I think it is because if it is a throw quilt, like I intend for the Just Because Quilt, then I want it rectangular to reach down my legs.

This quilt is made up from two very modified blocks. One is the New England block and the other is 'Round The Corner. I have been working on the modified New England block and finished all 15 of them, ready and pressed. Hopefully this afternoon I'll get to start on the 'Round the Corner blocks. Oh and the good news is that I can use up some more of those 87 million half square triangle units that I got carried away with!

I know the above block a little curved. That is because I used my couch as the background and the curve of the cushion makes it look a little funny. Just ignore that. :)
