I decided that I could change the 2 rows of small squares into many configurations but in the end it really wouldn't make any difference how I had them. There could be many successful ways of finishing this quilt and I had to just make a decision and move on. Last night I got the first four columns sewn together. I need to still fussy cut 19 more squares.
I mowed the lawn while it was still low humidity yesterday. The heat rolls in Wednesday and it sounds like it will be here for several days. I have friends coming to sew Wednesday and Monday so basement cleaning will happen today.
