I got all the rows done, just have to sew then together. I'm a little concerned because they are not really even. Not sure if I should attempt to straighten the line or if it will just work out in the end. :? Should have thought about that sooner, I guess. But I think it turned out pretty good for a first time.

I had a couple oopies where I sewed the wrong sides together. Luckily, I had enough extra fabric to recut the pieces. The stitches I used were too small to undo. It would have taken me all day just to do that. :lol:

Below is the pic. I still have to trim the in between pieces, but you get the jist of it.

I like your choice of colors and the placement of them. It gives a good sense of movement.
