What are you most proud of? Doing a pieced back was new for me and I'm happy with the way it turned out. I did not want to go get more fabric, and I didn't want that huge pink print in my stash! What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a great pattern for beginners! You can make it as big or small as you want with more rows/columns. When you cut the strip sets (or strata as Nancy calls them), line up your ruler with the horizontal seams rather than the top and bottom of the strip.
