    This quilt took me months to make and I hated every inch of making it. It was hard, tedious, hair pulling, and I ripped it out a number of times. Grrrrrrr!! Anywho....it came out a lot better than I thought it would. It looks nice on the table. The kitchen is pale yellow in color. I may make some sort of country quilt at some time that will be more country. I think this tablecloth would look much nicer in a house with an ocean view. Or a masculine home. It's not dainty. I am still clenching my teeth trying to get all the points to look sharp and neat. Awful pattern to make. Awful. I will never make one again. I am going back to making kitty and basket quilts. Easy stuff.

    Whoa, that's awesome! I never attempted that pattern myself because it looks too complicated, but it sure looks impressive. If I have to undo too much, I just usually quit, LOL.
