I made this for my mother for Christmas. The fabrics are beautiful and all go wonderfully together; nice high quality fabric too. The pattern was easy to follow and not difficult but it is a lot of cutting and piecing. The pattern directions tell you to make four quarters and add sashing to connect the quarters. If I were to make this pattern again, I think I would make two halves and start connecting the strips in the middle of each half and work my way outward from the middle ~ because, as hard as I tried, my squares didn't all line up properly and I think it would've been less noticeable had I started in the middle.
