Flimsy Finish - Aurora Borealis

Started in Paris and finished in Alaska. 
This quilt was a kit from the Atlanta area quilt shop, Intown Quilts. The pattern, Blue Midnight, was designed by Taffy McLaughlin. The scrappy squares were pieced from 42, 10" squares. My version came up bigger...and I didn't realize until I finished it that I had added a row! I used every square pieced from the layer leftovers. The pattern called for 6 x 7 rows. The instructions were skimpy with room for personal other words...I had to do math and found the pattern was really just a guideline.

It reminds me of the northern lights.
