What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun with the project. I stressed because I started out with 9 square cuts and I think that was aggressive for my first quilt. I adapted by making a large center block and mixed in squares and strips and pieced in the 9 square sections. I made two airplanes and pieced them in the center section.
