    I have a wedding to go to in July. I needed to make something for a young couple that are not traditional in any way. Their dishes are dark brown almost black with a leaf branch up one side. How do you like this?

    Wonderful. Thanks very much. I have never liked Contemporary stuff. I am pretty Country traditional. I will be hand quilting it. It really was easy to make.

    LOL I "enhanced" that early on and instead of "unsewing" I decided to go with it and see what I got. I think it was a good choice.
