Bargello Fun

Ditat Deus, 69x64 2005
Shortly after making the birdhouse quilt, my mom gave me a quilt class as a Christmas present and I enrolled in a bargello class at a quilt store in Tucson.  I had a bunch of fun, and learned so many critical basic quilting/piecing techniques. I'm still not really precise though, and always envious of people who are patient enough to have good points!  It's one of my long-term creative goals!

In any case, I thought the quilt I started in the bargello class turned out pretty nice; I love the colors.  I called it Ditat Deus (God enriches).  That's the motto on the official seal of the State of Arizona, and the quilt reminds me of the colors of sunset in the desert.
