Balkan Puzzle

What are you most proud of? I redrafted the pattern to use parallelograms and bigger triangles so that there were less seams and the prints were not as chopped up. What advice would you give someone starting this project? There are so many designs made with half-square-triangles that can be executed with whole shapes instead. Sometimes the effect is less distracting than unnecessarily chopping up a print. Just takes a little drafting!
