What are you most proud of? The project is completed. lol! I tried a new stitch from Leah Day's FMQ Project and I encountered all sorts of road blocks (tension issues, running out thread, hand cramping, and so on) that I actually threw thw quilt down at one point and kicked it like a two-year old! BUT even though its not perfect I kept with the project (as soon as thread arrived via post).

What advice would you give someone starting this project? STARCH! I used a lot of it in this project. I also actually liked how much better these blocks turned out when I ironed the seams open rather than to the side as I had previously done in this particular quilt. Did I mention starch? I also noticed that although I used spray basting because there are so many nooks on the back you may want to pin in a few areas as well to save frustrations over areas that do not stay down!

I actually bought the 6" charm Squares off of Craftsy deals! I was trying to find fabrics that I had not used or seen before.
