What are you most proud of? That I made a perfect carry-all for quilt supplies, like long rulers! Yet it's narrow enough not to be awkward to carry. Love that you can design exactly what you want with this "pattern"! What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you mix lights and darks (in large areas), I would use a "disappearing" thread for quilting. The dark green areas on this bag look too much like a business suit with the light thread I chose with the patched area in mind!
