What are you most proud of? Being able to use the design to create this for a proud member of our Armed Forces. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you measure and sew your seams carefully so that they align exactly. This was my first quilt and I spent a lot of time redoing my stitching so the seams aligned. Very crucial when doing "Stitch in the Ditch". Have fun with it and experiment with fabrics. I'm working on a second one for a friend who is battling breast cancer.
