    Here's a pic of the quilt top that I made for my 19 yr old niece. When I asked her at Christmas time about what she'd like her quilt to be, she said "I love purple and blue." So I asked if she wanted something traditional or modern. After explaining what I meant by traditional, she asked for something more modern. What do you think?

    Beautiful......I have fabrics in those colors that I am getting ready to do a Bargello quilt with. Now that I have seen them together I am happy with the color choice. You did a great job and I am sure she will be so happy with the quilt.
