Peace Cottage Quilt in Queen size

I joined a quilt group this summer, and this is the quilt they started in January. Each month we would learn and work on a section of the quilt so that it took until August to get through all the lessons. In September we showed our quilts at our monthly meeting. I was almost done with my top (missing the bottom row of piano keys). Only 6 of the 30 members where done. I was the only one who figured out how to turn the twin size pattern into a queen. I put in a chicken coop instead of the silo, added a row of Log cabin blocks, and a row of trees, as well as added extra blocks and trees to get my width. I also added 2 extra stars in the top portion. It was a lot of work, but once I get it completed, (I'm in the process of quilting it on my new Quilting machine), it will got on our bed in our RV. We go to Texas in December so I have a bit of time to finish it yet. We had to stand on chairs to get it off the floor for the picture. I've had it laying on our bed to look at it, and I'm excited to get it finished.
Thanks for looking.
Hugs
Diane
