What materials did you use? Cottons from my stash, but just purchased the two fabrics for the outer border the other day on sale at Joanns.

What are you most proud of? I got stumped when it came to fabrics for my outer border but I finally got something I like! My carefulness in cutting the bold navy "Jetson" print paid off! My wacky color combo and irreverently clashing polka dots!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't have your mind made up about fabric choices until you get to the next step. Watch that your seam allowances are just the right amount of scantity--not too much and not too little.

Very clever placing of the fabrics and I love the fussy-cut centre. Yes - I agree with you about the accuracy of the quarter-inch seams - very difficult to get right!
