What are you most proud of? I stopped working on the central braids and started on the sham braids and I came out exactly perfect on both of them. Just plain lucky. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Buy the pattern and template from Quilt in a Day. Also, pay close attention to not having any two fabrics too close to each other, after assembling I discovered that I had sewn the same fabric side by side. Phooey, but it was too late to do anything about it.
