The end result is pretty cool:
If this design looks a little familiar to you, maybe you've seen my post over on Craftster. I made a set of napkins for my sister-in-law last Christmas, but I fudged the stitches and cheated a lot to make them line up. It bothered me because I knew I could do better. I just needed to get it done in time. But I've gone back to the design and reworked it until I got the spacing right.
