What are you most proud of? That it looks so good all finished, and that I was able to adapt the technique to include the sashing strips. What advice would you give someone starting this project? There is a LOT of hand sewing to complete the blocks, but it is so easy to take squares anywhere - I did most of my finishing at work, on my breaks. Other than that, when you are done - YOU ARE DONE! It is quite exciting to have the quilting done as you sew.
