What materials did you use? Scraps from various orange prints and solid homespun for background.

What are you most proud of? The fact that it is my first attempt at appliqué and most of the stitching was done with my 20-month-old son sitting on my lap.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would suggest choosing a small-scale print or near-solid instead of a solid for the background as this may help to hide the piecing lines between the background squares.
