This is a bargello quilt for a customer. She picked out a pattern that was a wall-hanging, so I had to totally re-do the pattern to make it bigger. I used up lots of graph paper to plan it all out. She is giving it as a wedding gift - the bride requested black, green and silver. Finished size is 56 x 80.
The quilting thread is a high-sheen poly that looks sparkly when the light catches it right.
I quilted an all-over hook and swirl pattern in the body, loops in the small black border, and in the outer border - parallel line that mimic the spacing of the piecing in the body.
The backing is stripes in the same colors - a great find.
