    Just wanted to say Yeah!!!!! I completed a Bargello quilt with the help of Barb's tute. I took it to the LQS to have someone help me sandwich it together. While there I met a lady who had just gotten a new long arm quilter. She offered to quilt my top for just the price of thread ($15.00). WOW! Nothing like that ever happens to me. Thanks for listening to me. None of my friends quilt and I just had to tell someone.

    WOW - Beautiful quilt and free long arm quilting to boot! She needed something to quilt and you needed something quilted. Maybe the beginning of a new friendship. Congrats!

    Wow! Beautiful job! I love the patterns that you came up with in how the fabric colors lay. Looks like the quilting done with great care.
