What are you most proud of? My applique stitching was almost perfect on these pieces. I followed Amy's technique in the BOM 2012 video and I couldn't have been happier. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Patience and get good at your corners before starting something small. Finishing a quilt with four corners is easy. The quilt top is the most prominent. But when you are doing something like a mug rug, every aspect is part of the picture constantly.
