    Wink Pink & Purple Bargello

    I just finished this Pink and Purple Bargello for my Great Neice. It is the first quilt that I long armed myself in about 5 years.
    Thanks for lookg.

    It is marvelous! Love the colors, love the bargello, love the quilt. Your niece will treasure it!
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    She is going to Love both sides of your quilt. I like your choice of quilt designs for the bargello blocks. The label looks so neat and crisp, too. You did a great job and in plenty of time for Christmas.

    I'm always impressed by people who make a bargello - I love your design, your colors and the quilting you chose.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    What a fun Bargello! I love the addition of the polka dots. They give it such energy! The quilting design you chose is a great compliment to the piecing. She's going to love it.

    It's beautiful. How did you make all those straight quilting lines with a LA? I tried it once, and it looked like a kindergartner did it.

    I would guess with a ruler!

    It's a lovely quilt! I love bargellos - you did a great job on your gradient! And I like your quilting, too.
