What are you most proud of? Lasting the distance. There'll not be another one like this in a while. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be patient, and don't make the first square too big such that you cannot commit yourself to making 3 others like it. There is no pattern for this... seeems not to need one. Clamshell for the inner squares and a few outer borders, then take it back to double or triple stitch to even out the border and firm up the edges.
