What are you most proud of? The final product went together well. And after quilting, was one of the warmest, snuggliest quilts I ever made. And the recipient loved it so much she cried. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go slow. Make sure each row squares up properly. And when quilting, use a cross hatch design...if you do a quilt like this "in the ditch" some areas on the final product will be far heavier quilted than others. The cross hatch design will keep the quilting even, throughout the whole blanket.
