Spring Mountains

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.
