What are you most proud of? I'm just happy to have completed the paper-piecing correctly and getting the rug to look ok. I cannot say that it is as beautiful as the pattern but I'm a happy gal. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch some You Tube videos on paper piecing before cutting your fabric. I watched several the night before and was up for the challenge the next morning. I also put a pretty backing on top of the backing that is quilted to give it a more finished look. Turned out great. You should try it!
