What are you most proud of? That I didn't have to rip any seams out.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch the bias cuts so you don't stretch the fabric, pin where the slashed pieces meet for better accuracy, and go slow. Don't panic, like I did at first, when I thought the slashed pieces were going to be off. Somehow they all come together. These were 2 blocks I had never done before, and they were fun to do!

Thank you. At first I thought I ruined it cutting so close to the edge, but I was glad I didn't have to do another one.
