What are you most proud of? I am proud to say that I designed and quilted this quilt all by myself. It is the first quilt that I quilted on my home sewing machine (Thanks to the guidance of Wendy Butler Burn's craftsy class Machine Quilting!).

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would say... don't be afraid to add several different fabrics/colors to your quilts. At first, the shirts all cut up lying in wait to be pieced together, looked like they would not look good together at all. But I threw caution to the wind and just went for it. I also think the darker colors of the sashing and border really pull all of the different fabrics together while at the same time allowing each color and fabric in the quilt shine.
