    Even though this is a pretty simple design, I trully believed this project was cursed from the get go! I had to rip out alot of the squares because I had put them in upside or put the sashing on the top when it should have been put on the bottom. Glad it is done! I used red flannel backed satin for my binding and backed it with black flannel backed satin (Thank God for a walking foot (which of course broke and I had to wait until the new one got here to finish it)) I just did SID and put a label on it that SewnSew2 created for me. It is a wedding present for a wonderful young couple, I'm sure they will enjoy it!!!

    It turned out beautiful in spite of the issues you had with ripping out and the foot breaking. Thanks for sharing.

    It's lovely and your efforts definitely show. I have a big chunk of the Koi in the waterfall print. Love that fabric. I actually have a passion for all Asian prints.
