...from making certain kinds of quilt patterns? I shy away from patterns that have a lot of white/light background. I think it has to do with the actual quilting. I'm nervous about finding a design to fill in the light background and that any quilting 'boo-boos' will show up too much. So I'm hesitant to attempt a pattern if it has a lot of light background, even if the light areas are what makes the pattern look so lovely.
