    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".

    Why do you feel like you screwed up? Are you not happy with it? You don't have to make quilts that look like the picture ;-)
