What are you most proud of? Choosing to use the matching thread colors ... a bit challenging, with changing out the threads every time I went to a different point. When it came to choosing the edge color-the backing color did nothing to the front. So with my husband's help, we chose the blue ... I think it came out quite well. Yes, husbands can help and can have good ideas! ;-) What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun! There's so many choices of combinations. Others have adapted the size & such of this pattern, but I'm just fine with the way it is.
