Great balance, peaceful overall look. I like the idea of using sateen, but it can be tricky with the looser weave of sateen. Did the weave cause you to plan direction of stitching more carefully? What stabilizer did you use to get the sateen to behave? It truly is lovely.

I found the cotton sateen quite straightforward to use. The stabiliser is a fairly standard interfacing - it was included in the course kit
