    I finally finished quilting my bargello underwater. I asked for opinions on HOW to quilt it. I tried some of the suggestions, but boy oh boy, it did not work! I tried tracing the whales and dolphins and ended up seam ripping it out. It was HORRIBLE. So, I decided to just stipple around it. It still looks like there is some movement there. Don't ya think?

    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

    Front...Really windy today...ugh!

    I've never liked bargello quilts but I love this one! The fish on the blue background are perfect.
