What are you most proud of? That I finished it. What advice would you give someone starting this project? For those of you like me, I don't particularly like tie quilting but on this project I wouldn't suggest machine or hand quilting it. It makes putting the pillow pocket on it far more difficult. I machine quilted this one and it was very difficult to make and didn't turn out as well as it would had if I had tie quilted it. I would also suggest using a high loft batting. It'll make it fluffier when you fold it into a pillow.
