What are you most proud of? The detail. Instead of machine stitching diamonds as the pattern suggests, I drew my own 'leaf/vine' design with air-erasable pen and hand sewed each section differently.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It takes time. Make sure you sew keep seam allowance as exact as you can. DON'T use stretchy fabrics or be careful cutting on the bias - the small pieces loose shape and move easily. TIP - (I was told too late for this project) - Spray patches with starch after cutting to help retain their shape.Above all - have fun, you can un-do any mistakes.

This is a beautiful quilt. I am going to attempt a double wedding ring in the fall. I have found a "quilt" as you go pattern that will be great for me b/c I have really restricted space in which to sew. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfifwcg8IJ4

What a treasure you've created! It's beautiful. in 1969 my grandmother made one for a wedding present for me and I used it until it was in tatters. I wish now, I'd hung it on the wall and preserved it! Congratulations on a wonderful project well done!
