What are you most proud of? completing this project and how the colors work together. Also, that I finally got the borders sewn correctly.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Give it a shot. If I can do it, I'm sure you can too. Do check your borders each time you add one. I thought I had my top and bottom borders correct and did have one of them correct, but changed one and then both were wrong. Points were going in the wrong direction and it's really noticeable when you look at it on the wall with the side borders and the corner squares. It just doesn't work when the points are not facing out.

Wonderful work on your New York Beauty project! Love the colors you chose - those batik fabrics are marvelous! I'm so proud of you for sticking with it, even though you had to redo the borders - the resulting quilt was well worth it!
