    After seeing Bargello's on the board, I bought the book last year and have been creating on the EQ6. Knowing it would snow this weekend I thought I better make something. I started cutting on Thursday and completed the top Monday night. I am so happy it turned out exactly the way I wanted it to. The colors are bright and not really my style, but I am loving it! The size is 56"x70". Next I need to pick out the backing fabric then quilt it. I am definitely doing more :-)

    1st block to see if I do like it

    Thank you! I was really nervous about doing this. I started to make one last year but it didn't turn out right so I ditched it (well made something else).

    To my surprise, it was easy to put together. I spend more time designing/playing around with the EQ6 than cutting and sewing!
