What are you most proud of? I created this pattern myself using graph paper and my sister helped me choose the colors.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Since I'm new to creating my own patterns I focused first on piecing the quilt center, then I went back to the store and bought more fabric for the border. The quilt center ended up a little smaller than I expected--it's hard to factor in all those mitered seams! Letting the border correct for my mistakes saved me a lot of grief. And my mom won't be stuck with a full sized quilt on a queen sized bed!! :-D

This is just the quilt top--I'll post more pictures once the long-arming is done.
