    Sending a BIG thankyou to Danmar for all her hard work and sweet sharing and helpful sprit. This quilt was so exciting to watch come together. It is my DH favorite quilt. I am always amazed at the movement of the quilt. I really have flat floors and a good firm bed! :D

    I am afraid to make one, I think it would give me a headache to say the least. Great job.

    Haha, good thing you mentioned about the floor and bed being flat! Your quilt just bumps and waves. Very nice job.

    I love this with all the movement -- where did you get the idea?? It is just what I've been looking for -- Northern lights colors or waves at sea tones -- Fantastic work !!!!

    Mim,
    Thank you. This is Danmar's pattern. I don't know how to post a link to her, but you should not have a problem finding Danmar. Send her a pm and she will be very helpful.
    Your color ideas will be awesome. Want to see it when you make it.

    Your Bargello is great, love the colors. You did a good job. What size bed are you using it on?
    I finished mine last week, haven't had good sun to get photos of it yet.

    Thank you for posting a link for Danmar's pattern.
    Can't wait to see your 'Swish'! My bed is a queen.
    The quilt was pulled to the side for the picture.
    I am so thankful for all the wonderful comments.
    LOL at it appears to be Alive!

    It does appear to be alive. Each time you walk through the room it still ripples out at you, no matter which angle you look from. I really do like yours.
    I made photos of mine a minute ago and am going to post it. When you get ready to do your next one let's buddy up and do them at the same time. That would be so fun!
