What are you most proud of? The detail. Instead of machine stitching diamonds as the pattern suggests, I drew my own 'leaf/vine' design with air-erasable pen and hand sewed each section differently.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It takes time. Make sure you sew keep seam allowance as exact as you can. DON'T use stretchy fabrics or be careful cutting on the bias - the small pieces loose shape and move easily. TIP - (I was told too late for this project) - Spray patches with starch after cutting to help retain their shape. Above all - have fun, you can un-do any mistakes.

I don't know if I have the patience to do this pattern as a 50"x60" quilt but I'm willing to try.

Sometimes patience can be gained in quilting when you visualize your prize as you plot through. A finished quilted project is such a good feeing of accomplishment to help patience grow

You're spot on there Jean. I've often felt like giving up half way through a quilt, but thinking of seeing it finished gets me through the slump. It has ALWAYS been worth the effort.
