Calvin's Cushion

What are you most proud of? I used the needleturn appliqué in reverse, because I wanted the letter to be in a crazy-pieced section of fabric. Needleturing the background fabric instead of dealing with trying to needleturn all those seams, seems to have been the right way to go. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I did overlook the fact that the green crazy-pieced section would shine through the light background fabric. I masked it a little by use of the handstitching, but I would be more careful about fabric selection next time.
