The selection process took a few hours! Three quilt shops were visited to get the complete color range I was searching for, not sure of any of the fabric designers.

How awesome it looked when I finally pinned it to my drapes for the first full-on 'look-see'. I couldn't stop smiling!!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
