English Paper Piecing

What are you most proud of? I actually completed the blocks as I don't like hand sewing and cutting out all the pieces. I'm glad to learn the process but this is my least favorite block to date, What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use file folders instead of paper pieces. However, do not use colored folders as they bleed when sprayed with starch and pressed. Manilla folders work and can be used again.
