What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use a woven that's stays woven! My fabric trimmed itself away as I worked by unravelling at the speed of sound. The very open linen-like weave I used is best suited for a different seam finish. Unless you're looking for a challenge lol! Remember to keep the "inside to inside" and "outside to outside" pieces together and you'll have no problem following this class. Diana is a great teacher.
