What are you most proud of? The final layout was a long time coming. I was able to adjust the block sizes to work in columns. I downsized the tumbling blocks and used "Y" seam techniques to inset the two side patches. My first mitered border came out well. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be intimidated up front with the class sample quilt. You can always adjust to your own liking. Keep your overall color scheme in mind as you go. Wait until the end to create your Stripey Spools. They act more like fillers than blocks.
