    Love them both, especially the bargello! Great job! Sorry about Casey. Dogs are so wonderful and such a big part of our lives.
    Have discovered paper piecing!

    They're both really gorgeous but I especially like that second one...the HST's give the lines a great flow, my eyes swoop back and forth across the quilt when I look at it. Feels organic the way you put it together, a little bit like wood or maybe eroded rock strata. Beautiful!

    Wow! Those are amazing. Never would have thought the second one came from HST.

    I'm sorry to hear about your dog, our fur babies are very special and will always have a place in your heart.

    Your quilts are beautiful, love the first one. I really like black in my quilts, but also hate removing the lint.

    Your quilts are gorgeous. I love the first one best. But I like black for a background. Sorry to hear about Casey. Pets are members of the family & it is so hard when we lose them.

    Your star one is stunning and your bargello is very, very interesting. I have to put these on my bucket list.

    Your quilts are exceptional. Despite the difficulty, I don't know what would set them off any better than black. The colors in both is great. They show off your talent to perfection. I like the pattern in the first quilt.
    Casey is in doggy heaven waiting joyfully for you to join him. He is not suffering but celebrating. Picture him as being happy, and that will comfort you. Do not delay in getting a new pet to give your love to.

    I LOVE what a black background does for bright colors. Your quilt is STUNNING! The 2nd quilt is a very interesting and clever way to use HSTs. I haven't seen it before, so to me you've come up with an original design. Way to go!

    I have never seen Delectable Mountains in that arangement. It is unusual and very pretty.
