What are you most proud of? Designing and executing my own simple pattern. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Look through your stash of fabrics, select a color scheme or a rainbow of colors. Map out your top on graph paper. My finished blocks are 2 x 4 and the sashing is 1-1/2 wide. The green border is 1-1/4. The outer border is 4-1/2 wide, because that is how much fabric was available in my inventory.
