The bargello is finished.
I love the quilting that really brings out the wave pattern in the quilt.
And, surprise, a second quilt of sorts on the back. The owner of the quilt really loved the paw print and lodge fabrics, but they wouldn’t work on the front. So I made really big blocks. When the quilter pulled it out of the bag (Husband had dropped it off for me) she said, “I thought there was a mistake and I had two tops, but then I thought, ‘No, that doesn’t look like a Deanna top. The pieces are too large’.” She has quilted a few for me a does a great job. Thanks, Tara!
The bear is a childhood favorite of the owner that needed a few repairs and got a new hat in the process. I couldn’t send him home underdressed!
They are all packed together and in the mail to their home. The box should arrived in a few days. Sure hope he likes it!
Just a few notes: There are 15 colors in the top and I used 2/3-yard of each. The basic pieces are 2-1/2″ high and vary from 1-1/4″ wide to 4″ wide, unfinished cut. There are, I believe, 2880 pieces on the top and 72 on the back. Finished size of the quilt 91″ x 108″. The second largest quilt I have made.
