    Beautiful! I can see why you're excited about it. Someday I hope to be brave enough to try this.

    Beautiful job!

    Turquoise and purple were the colors I had for my wedding - 41 years ago. Still love the combination.

    Yes! Aside from all the cursed pressing of the seams, it really went together pretty quickly, and now that I've discovered the 1/4-inch piecing foot for my machine (after HOW MANY YEARS?!?) my blocks actually line up now. I haven't been telling any of my non-quilting friends how it's made so they all think I pieced every little rectangle individually...I haven't let on the secret so they all think I'm either amazing or insane. ;-)

    41 years!! Congrats! We have our 16th anniversary next week.

    It's a lovely color combo. I gravitate more towards blacks and reds for myself so it's nice to work with different color schemes. I'm having tons of fun using other people's favorite colors for their quilts, it's like trying on someone else's personality for a few hours at a time.

    You did a beautiful job. I can't believe that you made your own pattern for your first attempt! You're very talented.

    I can't believe this is not only your first attempt but that you created the pattern yourself. It's beautiful and the colors are wonderful together.

    That's beautiful! I've looked yearningly at bargello patterns for quite a while and would love to try one but too chicken. It looks hard and complicated. Maybe some day I'll get brave !

    Welcome to the bargello club!!! If more quilters realized how "relatively easy" they are to make, everyone would be making them!!!

    I found it easier to fly by the seat of my pants than to follow a pattern. After a few pointers, like you, I designed my own and put it together. The hardest part for me was the SID quilting. Ugg. Designing and piecing the quilt was exciting!!!

    BTW: Yours is beautiful!!! Let the awe and envy fly!!!
