Sandy's Bargello

We had lots of fun at the Valley Of The Sun Retreat last February. Many of us took a class by Ellen to make a bargello quilt. There was so much variety of colors that they were all unique. This is on that Sandy G. made for her grandson. She wanted quilting for a guy so that took care of the feather plan that I had. The design has a curve which was also a challenge with the design I executed. In the end I really had fun watching this come to be from the sketch I sent her for approval.

I just broke up the design into parts with parallel lines and alternated two quilting designs in those areas.

IN the border I made some diamonds and used the same two designs in them. The was pretty fun to quilt and was out of the box so I got to try something new.

*Great* job of thinking of an appropriate quilting design for the recipient and the space!

Sandy did a terrific job of piecing the bargello together!
