    This looks like a Karen Burns celtic pattern, am I right? I love the colors and yes, we learn with each new quilt. That's what I like about it, always learning and improving as we go along.

    Great job!

    It really is a gorgeous quilt. Whatever you learned, you sure learned it well.

    I think that it is a beautiful quilt and glad you feel you learned some things doing it. I would just enjoy looking at it.

    I made this same quilt just a month ago... I learned that those darn corners were such a pain to try and get together... that sometimes they just wont be perfect... and that's ok.
    Yours looks great.

    Lovely quilt. Thanks for sharing your experiences, and I love your attitude about learning something new with each quilt. You did a wonderful job.

    The quilt is beautiful. When I first started the board I did a topic of all the mistakes made. For a newbie it gave me so many things that could help. But most of all not being alone and fun to laugh. I always try not to make the mistakes but laugh harder if I forget. :) :) :thumbup:

    Sure is pretty, and the quilting is wonderful! I've learned all the same things and more on quilts I've made, too.

    I also use a dark gray for quilting colors. If I think the stitching may show, I just shorten the stitch a bit. However, no one is going to pull apart the seam and check the thread and if they do 'shame on them'.

    It is a beautiful quilt. Small booboos don't bother me. I know how you feel though. Keep up the good work. This shows great talent with color and design. :-)
