    Ok, I fixed the corners on the blue one, it just wasn't going together right, so off it came and I put new ones on. :)

    Now, the finished product!

    The scalloped border was a chore. The corners aren't quite there as of yet, but it's still really cute and if I were to give it to someone, I'm sure they would overlook that part.

    So, what do you think??

    Terri,
    You did a really great job on it. So retro! I would make some cute tassles to hang from the corners to make that look intentional and they would never know the difference. I love it!

    That's a GREAT idea!
    Ben Franklin's has a bunch of tassels on their clearance rack. COOL! Guess where I'm going tomorrow! lol

    You know, looking at it again, the yellow square throws it off a bit, but ya know what? I don't care! I still think it's pretty and my favorite is the blue block. Gotta love that cobalt blue!

    It looks great ! Love the way it came out. I have never seen scallops done that way. Tassels will really make it stand out!

    Yes Joan,,,it's machined. It takes a bit of time to get it right. I play with the size of the stitch and make sure I write it down before shutting the machine off for the night. If I don't, everything goes back to the way it was and I lose my settings. Lite Heat and Bond is my friend! I buy it by the yard! Much cheaper that way. I think the last time I bought it, it was $1.99/yd vs 2 yds for $5. I bought 10 yards last time I got some. lol

    Gorgeous! Were the scallops hard to make? I've never seen any like that either.
