Don't tell Lisa's dad that he's getting this great Bargello for Father's Day!
Lisa didn't want anything to distract from her collection of featured squares. I just stitched in the ditch and did some straight rows in the borders. It sounds simple, but not all quilts can stand up to perfectly straight lines like Lisa's can. Her seams didn't waver! This has wool batting. Wish I could see it after it gets washed!
Connie is a local teacher who strives to present finished quilts to inspire her students. Her piecing is impeccable and it is always a humbling challenge to try to enhance her tops with quilting. I did leafy swirly things in the light and squared off motifs in the dark areas of this Roman Stripe quilt.

My niece, Kelsi, is getting married in June. My mom, sisters and I collaborate to make a quilt for each marriage. Kelsi and her mom chose the fabrics, and the pattern but she hasn't seen it since then. Do you think she'll like it?!!
