What are you most proud of? I had to create a pattern to get my color layout the way I wanted it (I used Illustrator)... that part is fairly easy since I'm a graphic designer. The hard part for me was FOLLOWING my own pattern. I have a hard time following anything, this is where I made a lot of mistakes and had to take a lot of stitching out to get it right. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun! String quilts are super easy, and there are so many ways to use the blocks. It's an easy way to get creative.
