    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.

    Very cool! I think the only adjustment I would make is to make sure that the binding join didn't land on a corner.

    I always thought that the selvage would shrink more than the fabric, and that's why we don't use it? I wonder how that would work after a washing?
