What are you most proud of? This is my first piece with freehand quilting. I'm still learning to make the sewing machine do what I want, but it's a nice feeling to see the quilting and know I did it on my own. What advice would you give someone starting this project? My bag came out a little smaller than I originally wished because I just estimated my measurements. I'd be more careful with accurate measuring in the future, and accounting for seam allowances!
