Bargello

This is one of my own quilts but I’m pretty happy with the quilting so thought I’d show you.  I’ll be teaching a version of this quilt in June at my local guild if you are interested.

It is 33″ x 46″.  I used all my own hand-dyed fabrics for this.  It is very bright, but I’m loving it!

 

Here is the back since many have been interested in that view as well with this quilt.  I sewed my label on before quilting this time.

I used a double layer of batting; Hobbs 80/20 on the bottom and Hobbs Wool on the top.  It added some additional dimension to the unquilted areas but I also think it is too heavily quilted to really see the benefit this time.

This quilt will head to our daughter’s once I’m done with my workshop in June.

    Joyce, I’m really impressed! Your bargello quilt and dyed fabrics are amazing. I’m just ironing my starched fabric now but after seeing your quilt I may change colors. Thank you for doing this workshop. Your instructions are very clear
