What are you most proud of? I wanted to make the challenge not just about the fabric but a personal challenge too. I wanted to do something I had never done before. Finishing a project that I had to make all of the calculations for, based on a photo, was new for me. I had also never attempted "Y" seams because I was intimidated. I am most proud that I stepped out of my comfort zone to try something new.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This isn't a quick project. Be prepared to take your time. I pre-marked all of my start/stop points before I started. The only problem was a used a frixion pen, which erases when you iron it, so the first time I ironed my seams the marks went away. Oopps. I do recommend marking the start stop points, it really makes getting those nice points.

What is the finished size of this quilt? I love it! I am making something similar to this as table topper. Your finished size will help me with mine. Thank you.

I'm not sure the best way to measure the quilt but here is what I got. Each side is 14 inches. The widest point across measures 28 inches and the narrowest point across measures 21 inches. Each diamond and trapezoid was cut from a 2 1/2 inch strip. Hope that helps.
