Simply Style Lap Quilt

Simply Color Lap Quilt Top
On my design wall is this fun lap quilt in Simply Style fabrics.  It is made from a layer cake with sashing in between every other row.  The sashing tones down the busyness by giving the eye a place to rest.  {and, yes, the rows are straight; it's just tacked to the design wall crookedly.}
I have another row of blocks, and I am debating making this into a twin size or keeping it a lap size and putting the row of blocks into the backing.  I would also have to add a slate gray border to make it twin size.  Thoughts?  The backing will be a slate gray with very large white polka dots, and the binding will be one of the turquoise prints or slate gray.  
This quilt will eventually be for sale in my Etsy shop.

I say go for the twin! I hardly ever regret making a quilt bigger.
