What are you most proud of? That I tried "fold over/ self binding" & machine stitching it with a decorative stitch in a red thread that really popped on the navy.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I really loved doing my blocks on a natural colored muslin & letting that be the "center" strip. I loved the weight of the top doing it this way & because of that I made it a "summer quilt" by using flannel inside, instead of a traditional batting. Have fun! These blocks are so fun, quick & easy & the strips don't have to be precise. It really freed me up since I am not the most accurate cutter & can never seem to get straight edges! Also, have fun playing with different widths, I love that some blocks only have a few strips & others have a lot! Have fun choosing fabrics, I included valentines & snowmen since they fit my color theme & I love both of those motifs.
