Jan's Bargello

Jan and some friends each made this top as a class through our local quilt shop.  I like her bright colors, and she carried those through with her borders.  The black is a great way to separate the borders from the body, and makes the center looks like it's floating.  The quilt is 65 x 85.

We decided on a curved all over pattern to soften all of the straight  lines of the quilt.  I used a variegated thread that has a lot of the fabric colors in it.

The backing she chose is perfect - has all of the colors from the front:

The quilting shows up well on the back too:
