I am a relatively new quilter. This is the second quilt I attempted. It was a learning experience all of us should have. It taught me about cutting accurately, 1/4" accurate seams, flexibility of size. I tried a different lay out for color than the instructions. It is not perfect. My seams don't line up as you can see. But I am proud of it. I finished it and learned so much that it makes the next quilts I try easier. It still is a warm comfy quilt and I can look back as I learn more and see just how far I have come!
