What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be careful as you pin the centers and join each side. This is crucial for the mitered corners to work. Also, be careful with the corner seam lines. Make sure your corner is sewn in the right direction before cutting off the excess fabrc.

I've seen quite a few on youtube. (never made anything tho) so now another project on my to do list! :D Beautiful job!

The pink with numbers took some doing to make the pattern run true to grain. I knew I'd have a challenge when it came off the bolt warped but just loved those colors. In the end it was well worth it. I got a thank you saying this had already become their favorite blanket. It was a gift for my friends newest granddaughter. Missouri Star rocks!!
