What are you most proud of? This quilt is one of my first - Quilt no. 3 to be exact. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Great project for a beginner. If you don't feel you can handle making the "flags" just leave them off. I made the bows by simply cutting strips of material with "zigzag" scissors, sewed the strips in place then tied bows. I also cut a few extra strips and put them away for any repairs.
