New York Beauty

What are you most proud of? That I finished the top! And that I managed to get the mitred border corners to look good. And that the colours all went together really well, as it is tricky when you are trying to auditon your fabrics. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I made an error in the pieced border, didnt measure properly - so just to make sure that you check twice, cut once!
