What are you most proud of? I'm most proud of the fact that I completed this entire project in less than 2 weeks. It is not a difficult quilt to put together, however, it is time consuming! Also, the recipient loved it enough that she sad she was changing the color of her bedroom so she could use it. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Layout everything and check, recheck and check again as you're stitching the friendship stars together! I can't tell you how many times I stitched one of the HSTs in turned the wrong direction (and you can see in the picture of the pillow shams that I stitched the same square flipped wrong in both of them--and didnt notice it unil I was folding them to wrap the gift!).
