    I signed up on two of DH's aunt's posts, so I had to post this twice, making 6 projects. However, on the second posting, my younger sister was the only one who signed up. Since this is also the year that she's graduating from high school, I decided to make 3 projects and just give them all to her. These are her gifts. Thanks for looking!

    The first one is an "Aurora Borealis" Bargello quilt. The Second is a "Spiderwebs & Mini Star" quilt, made from the scraps that were left over from the third quilt: a "Day & Night" quilt...if you couldn't tell, she really likes purple and gray combos, lol.
    #1 is my favorite by far.I just love the bargello's.That is one awesome quilt.When she gets tired of it you can send it my way.LOL Thanks a million for sharing them awesome quilts.Tell your sister she is a very pretty displayer.

    The bargello is stunning, and the other two are gorgeous. Purple is my favorite color.
