    Red face My Cactus Wreath quilt ... Did I screw up?

    I just finished piecing this top but a couple minutes ago. I wish I had a better place to hang it because it looks kinda wrinkly. But it is square and flatly pieced ... honest! LOL.

    The pattern is by cozy quilts, called cactus wreath. I had a hard time making it scrappy like they had it, so this is my take on it.

    I hope you like it. I am not sure if I do or not. I changed the cactus flowers and the long wreath sections to create a white distance between the wreath and the nosegay cactus blocks. Also I would like to say, the dark green isn't as dark as it is showing. Sorry bad pic because of the lighting.

    I forgot to mention the outside border and some of the pieces in the cactus are a red background with gold poinsettias and it is 72"x72".

    I think it's lovely....i can't see where you would have wanted to make any part of it any differently.
