What are you most proud of? The hand quilting. It took me 4 years to finish, but it was worth it. The backing is a much deeper red than in these pictures, and the thread is variegated in the colors of Autumn, except the border, which is quilted in white. The quilt is as pretty on the back as on the front! What advice would you give someone starting this project? You have to really love the person you make this for, because it was a lot of time and work.
