What are you most proud of? I hand appliqued the blocks to the background (which is why it took me until August to finish the July blocks!), I haven't done a lot of hand applique before and I'm proud of how well I managed. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I usually don't like to buy 'one block' rulers, but the EZ Dresden ruler was definitely worth the money. It made cutting the wedges very easy.
