What are you most proud of? My ability to do the math required to make the blocks different sizes but, end up with a perfect rectangle!! What advice would you give someone starting this project? I have a sketch notebook. I sketch and figure out the dimensions of the blocks working with the final shape. Then I insert the embroidery designs and the colors, I would like it to be. I copy this sketch, sign it and give it with the gift. I keep my original in my sketch book.
