What are you most proud of? This is my first attempt at making a quilt. I've had a fear of dealing with all the cutting and piecing together of a quilt. Maybe taking it slow with the BOM, it won't seem so daunting of a task. Garment making has always been my passion. I'm loving the look of the blocks so far.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure your cutting in precise. Also that you use the 1/4 inch seam allowance. As a beginner, this has been my challenge. So the blocks come out the proper finished measurement. Mine have come out 6 x 6, instead of 6.5 x 6.5.
