    The first one is awesome! Looks like woven ribbons! The second one is great too...very different. Nice work
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Wow How did you do that bargello? Just took a class on easy stripping bargello but not happy with results-not the best choice of fabric. The brights on your first quilt look like ribbon Great job on both!!!

    Gorgeous I love the first, really pops with the black background.
    Sorry you lost your beloved Casey. You need a new dog to help you through this horrible time. It never gets easier, I have lost lots of cats and dogs over the years.

    It's never easy to lose a beloved pet, especially one who has been a member of the family for so long.


    Your quilts are gorgeous and I want to thank you for making your patterns available to us all. I've just explored your website and downloaded three of your baby quilt patterns which I will make this month for a grandson who is due in September and I'm sure I'll be keeping an eye on your inspirational work from now on. Thank you again.

    I hope you will soon be able to remember Casey with smiles rather than tears. Hugsx

    Both are very good, but the stars on black just stands out so vibrantly.

    Oh my goodness, these are so pretty. I understand about the black catching lint but it is so much fun to work with. You did a great job.

    Lint notwithstanding, those stars are STUNNING. I think black just showcases those intense jewel colors to their maximum. So very pretty. Bargellos look hard to me and yours is very pretty.

    I, too, thought the stars looked like woven satin ribbons. They really pop on that black background. The bargello reminds me of the beautiful woven Native American blankets and the colors of it look like the muted tones of wool. Beautiful job.

    So sorry about your dog. They are definitely members of the family, never to be forgotten. We lost our Goldens (siblings) 17 days apart, two years ago, and I still hope to do a portrait quilt of them some day. When we get done doing our traveling we hope to get two more.........his and hers : )

    They are both wonderful, but the Delectable Stars is DYNOMITE!!!!! That one is now on my "gotta make this before my time is up" list - very near the top. Condolences on the passing of your dear Casey.
