What are you most proud of? How it turned out - the fabric selection and placement worked well for this project and I am very happy with the results. A good thing! What advice would you give someone starting this project? You need to have a stick-to-it attitude and be able to follow directions well, especially if you've never done a paper-pieced project before. I machine pieced the top but hand quilted the rest. It took me about three months to complete this queen-sized project, doing a little at a time just about every day.
