What are you most proud of? I very quickly picked the colors based on another quilt I saw, and did not agonize over them! Also, I used the scraps to make the borders and a matching pillowcase.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Keep in mind that the straight edges on this type of quilt are on the bias grain, so it is possible to end up with some distortion at the very edges. I would definitely do some measuring in the middle to compare with the edges, and try to ease them in when you sew the borders on. Probably not a problem with a tied quilt, but it sure can be annoying with machine quilting!
