What are you most proud of? Thinking outside of the box on color choices for this. Usually it is light, with a white or cream path through the garden. I went dark, with dark stepping stones instead. What advice would you give someone starting this project? If the quilt your making is meant to last....DO NOT wash again and again and again. Keep it from being soiled in the first place, and if you must wash it, do it by hand and only let the machine SPIN it dry. The agitators stress the fabric way too much and cause them to break down. Also, heavily quilt it to give it more stability for when it is laundered.
