It’s Finished…

My beautiful bargello quilt is done!  And, I could not be happier…

It measures 47 inches by 61 inches.  Almost covers my bed – and once I get a pillowcase made from the backing fabric, the large border fabric and the binding/small border fabric – it will look great on the bed.

This was not an easy quilt for me to make – it took a lot of steps to make it – and I’m not usually that patient a person…but, I hung in there because it was looking beautiful and I knew the end result would be worth it!

    It turned out SO nice. I made two bargello wall-hangings, so I know they take a lot of patience! I’m glad you stuck with it.

    Gorgeous! How long did it take you to make? I tried to vote for you in the contest but I’m not sure if I missed the deadline already since I don’t see where to vote.
