Lessons learned from this quilt:
- don't use white-on-white type fabric where the top layer isn't woven in... almost looks like it's painted on. This fabric was not very forgiving; when you take stitches out, they still show in the "painted" part.
- I actually CAN do picture-type machine quilting! I did dragonflies and butterflies in most of the white squares, and even did Erin's monogram in 4 corner white squares
- DO NOT leave an unfinished quilt sitting out in the workroom ... well, at least MY workroom. I was almost done with the quilting, and a mouse decided it liked my quilt. It chewed a hole in the backing and shredded a section of batting. Fortunately, it didn't break thru to the front. I stuck another piece of batting in, and patched the backing. Once it was quilted over, it wasn't that noticeable.
