What are you most proud of? The lining was not part of the project pattern. I added it without instructions, just figured it out myself (I am a quilter, too, so sewing doesn't intimidate me).

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try something new and exciting (and mysterious even)! You never know what you'll end up with, and it may knock your socks off.

Debbie, you did such a beautiful job, love the lining. Unfortunately, the pattern is not linked. :(
