Live and learn -- I sent this quilt to a show, and one of the judges commented that the binding was "shadowing": the polka dots from the back side were showing through to the front.  So I decided to increase the odds that the quilt would do better at the next show: I took the binding off, lined it, and sewed it back on.  I guess you could call that obsessive, but "experience is what you get when you don't get what you wanted."  That's a quote from Randy Pausch, a professor at Carnegie-Mellon, who wrote a book called "The Last Lecture."  I think they're wonderful words to live by.
