What are you most proud of? Matching the colors. The red was a brick red and it took a while for me to find just the right material to match the color. This was the first time that I tried to create without a pattern. I sewed the multicolored squares and then matched to the red ladies. This was the 4th blanket I ever made! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Measure, measure, measure, pin, pin, pin and iron, iron, iron. Matching the material to the colored thread was most important to me.
