What are you most proud of? That I broke the rules already by using red thread (a no no!)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? In hindsight, for a small project like this, I should have just started with one large background. Trying to match the stitching lines in a seam is close to impossible. If this was a quilt, I could have easily gotten around this issue by sashing but I like the interaction of the pattern so I chose to let the lines be where they lay (oh my, what WOULD the quilt police say???) Do I care?
