What are you most proud of? Finishing without going more than 52.3% more insane than I already was. (55% is my cut-off for too much extra insanity at once.) I really love the way the knotty-wood-grain quilting adds to the look of it. If I were a little braver, I might have added some bugs or leaves in, too. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I couldn't find any good instructions on how to sew binding on the inward corners, and so each one is done a different way, some of which are truly horrible to look at - work on mastering that part before you begin, and if you can't face the idea of doing 8 inward corners and 12 outward ones, then go for a nice rectangular playmat. Or hexagonal! Darn it, I should have made it hexagonal. Although, Octagonal would fit in the box better. *sigh* Don't you love retrospective?
