It was a wonderful refreshing sight when I saw this beautiful quilt arrive in my inbox. Joanne from Armstrong, BC, Canada had recently purchased my pattern "Color Connections" and wanted to share a photo of her finished quilt.

Joanne mentioned.... "There are a lot of fascinating bargello patterns out there (and I've bought 3 good books), but most of them are for king-size quilts, which I do not need. Your Colour Connections pattern, as soon as I saw it, zoomed to the top of the I-want-to-make-this-right-now list!"

"I used greens, rather than yellows, for the left unit - basically because I could get a better-balancedcolour run with my stash fabrics. My yellows would have dominated the design.".... says Joanne. I have to commend Joanne on her choice, it is all-important to have the right selection of fabrics to ensure you create an outstanding effect. It shows Joanne definitely chose right.

Not only was it wonderful to see Joanne's finished quilt, but it was also rewarding to read her comments.... "My compliments to your team for the quality of the directions in the pattern. Never once did I have to ask "what is going on here?" The layouts of all the charts worked really well for keeping track of all the units and their placement." My goal in a quilt pattern is to provide all the help needed to complete the design easily and efficiently, so it's always nice to know when those painstaking charts I draw are beneficial. Thank you, Joanne.

Joanne also sent a photo of her quilt in the process stage. Here it is before it was quilted - what a difference when you compare it with the photo above.

She shares her process..... "Goodness, what a difference the quilting made. I just did wiggly lines with matching threads through each of the colours (which seems to make these areas vibrate), and then variegated thread feathers in the background areas. I am very happy with the result."

Excellent job all round!
