What are you most proud of? I really believe it turned out better than I was hoping.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you want to try this before I get the pattern worked up, I would make a few suggestions. Use only 100% cotton fabric of a lighter weight or if using a heavier weight cotton, then make the strips narrower. The fabric is cut on the bias to give the fabric yarn some give. The outside blocks were done with a heavily patterned fabric. I would recommend using a fabric that doesn't have as much pattern (like the blue in the middle. I will be glad to give any other suggestions for anyone who wants to try this.

Just additional note. I took the rug to the county fair and it received Reserve Champion in the rug division. The judges comments were awesome, but they thought that Entrelac must be hard. . .but it is soooo easy.
