What are you most proud of? Making something so beautiful and completing a project that was really challenging. It was way out of my comfort zone and has turned out awesome. I keep gazing at my wall hanging and thinking, "Wow, did I really make that?"

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Practice, practice, practice. I left the project for nearly a year in the middle, so I had to relearn everything. Don't stop, keep going. Each step is challenging, but if you practice on some quilt sandwiches along the way, you do get better and better. Make lots and lots of quilt sandwiches, so you just have to pick up the next one and don't have to stop and get scraps out. Take each lesson as it comes, don't look ahead or you will be terrified!
