    You did a wonderful job! The fabrics were excellent choices. And I love the fish coming from behind the inner border. How cute!

    That quilt is so cool! I love how you took a regular bargello pattern, set it in a certain color, and added fish so it really reads as water. And those fish are so cute. Especially the little one peaking out. Gorgeous!

    Wonderful job. Sorry you had to do some "un-sewing"... The result is what counts and it is marvelous. It will be cherished, I am sure.

    oh wow - everything is absolutely perfect - what a gorgeous quilt!

    The backing is nautical because the our friend is retiring from the Navy and he is a chief so I wanted the anchors on there for him. My husband is going to make a wood wall hanging for it.

    The label is the first kind I made this way. Does it look alright you? This is why I want an embroidery machine one day LOL
