What are you most proud of? The versatility of this pattern. There are three options for the sidebar (horizontal stripes as shown here, checkerboard or pinwheels (as shown on the pattern page). This added to the myriad of fabric choices has resulted in a pattern that will suit all tastes. This pattern would also work well as a gift for a guy.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Keep those itty-bitty scraps of your favourite fabrics and use them on the triangle points of the star. Fussy cut the middle or use a plain or small print. I used linen for the background of the blue mug rug (on the pattern page) which looks modern, crisp and smart. My next version will be a country check option with hand-stitching. As always, have fun and enjoy.

You are right about saving your favorites. In one of my BOM blocks I have a 2 inch or so square ---- the only piece I had left and had been saving it for a while. I love your work
