Scrappy Bargello

Another finish ..... Scrappy Bargello (free pattern by Bonnie Hunter) in yellows and blues.  How I love this quilt!

How lovely it is to start seeing my shelf with all my tops dwindling.  A year ago, there were two shelves holding tops (with their backing fabric).  Now, I'm down to one shelf.  A huge improvement to say the least.  Bonus .... I'm using these quilts instead of just admiring them now and then.

Quilt details:
Scrappy Bargello (free pattern by Bonnie Hunter).  The layout is different.  It was fun to play around with the blocks until this look was achieved.

Started:  Sept. 3, 2013
Top finished:  Nov. 11, 2013
Quilt finished:  May 12, 2018

Quilt size:  63-1/2" x 88-1/4" (65-1/2" x 91" before quilting, washing and drying)
Batting:  80/20 poly/cotton

Back in 2013, I was on the program committee for my day guild and I needed to demo a block.  This was my choice.  So easy to do and a great way to use up scraps.  It didn't take too long to finish this top.  Instead of being an overall scrappy quilt, my fabrics were chosen carefully for a more controlled quilt.

Machine quilted by my friend Tella in Scarborough.  What a lovely job she did AGAIN!

There are still a few more quilts that need binding and my hands are itching to get another one started.  The road to our cottage is open now and a quilt on my lap in the mornings and evenings will be most welcome.

Have a great stitching day!

Well done on making such a dent in your flimsy pile - something I need to concentrate on I think! Your Bargello is beautiful..good that you are able to enjoy your quilts now rather than just admire them :-)

Oh - that's a great quilt, and I am looking forward to admiring it too!

I'm sure it feels great to have the pile of quilts waiting to be finshed dwindling. Your latest finish is delightful.
