Thank you everyone for the lovely comments.  Cheesy

I think on the next one I will use smaller square or even trying different quilting pattern.  It is much nicer to sit in, not so scratchy.

I have really enjoyed the other chairs makes me want to go out and try something different.  Can not wait for the next chair challenge.
