Being this is my latest finish, I am including it in the Blogger’s Quilt Festival over at Amy’s Creative Side.
I finished my quilt!! It’s been so long since I finished a big project…it’s just what I need for a little pick me up.
Here is Bargello in Plaid….
If you are looking for the pattern it’s a Bonnie Hunter book Scraps & Shirttails: Reuse, Re-pupose, Recycle! The Art of “Quilting Green”. I’ve made another quilt from the book (Perkioman Daydreams). I have more started and am now becoming inspired to finish them.
The quilt is made from recycled shirts and some fabric that had been sitting around here for a long time. It’s going to be a graduation present for one of our daughter’s good guy friends.
I think it makes a nice quilt for a boy…sometimes boy quilt ideas are hard to come up with. I think it also looks perfect for a picnic quilt! I was hesitant to put so much yellow in it, but I think it is a good addition.
Here’s the back. My chunk for blue fabric wasn’t quite big enough so I tried to piece a back together with some fabrics and shirt leftovers that I had sitting around here.
If you haven’t made a quilt from shirts…you just might want to give it a try. The fabrics are so soft and cuddly.
Hubby was actually happy with this quilt back. He said if I am going to piece a back, this was perfect. Coming from him, that’s a compliment. Now that this one is finished, I have that baby quilt in my sights….it’s time to finish it!!
Check out Confession of a Scrap Addict for more quilty goodness. This one was on my UFO list. It wasn’t this month’s number but, alas it is finished!! To see other UFO’s check out Patchwork Times.

Both sides are wonderful. It is nice when hubs chimes in.
You did a gorgeous job with the quilt – both front and back. Congrats on the finish!
It’s fabulous! Congrats on another great finish!
I love scrappy quilts and i really like this one. Now that i see your finished quilt laying out in the green grass I need to go pull that book off the shelf. Thank you for all your inspiration!
The back is as pretty as the front. I love the yellow addition…..course it is a favorite color of mine.
Its fabulous! That’s my kind of quilt – he’s going to love it! And yay for a finish! That’s always exciting. I love Bonnie’s patterns.
Nice job, Jo! The front and the back are both playful and colorful.
beautiful, I have completed several of Bonnie’s patterns but haven’t done this one yet.
Love love love the quilt! Wrote the book down so I can pick it up at Calico Hutch next time I’m there! That’s the kind of quilt I like to make!! and love the plaids!
I love this quilt!! I’m always on the lookout for ideas for a more masculine quilt and this one fits the bill. Great job.
Beautiful! I haven’t done any plaid quilts yet but this has inspired me. Thanks for sharing.
Bargello in Plaid turned out real nice. I’ll admit I was anxious to see how you used the red that was peeking out from the back in the first photo. Way to use up fabrics…oh and by the way the yellow is perfect. It adds “light” and always looks great with blue. Sandi
That’s gorgeous! It really is a good guy quilt.
Love the quilt! Terrific! The yellow is needed!
Yay, finishing is a wonderful feeling. And the Bargello in Plaid is gorgeous. I’ve done two but not plaid, will have to start collecting plaids.
Gorgeous quilt, I love both sides. Great job!
beautiful quilt! love the yellow border! very inspirational!
Very nice Jo! I think it is a wonderful guy quilt. Yours may be my favorite bargello I’ve ever seen:)
Yes, I think that is a perfect guy’s quilt; I think he’ll love it. The back is great too!
Your finished quilt looks awesome!! I think it works great as a boy quilt too! I need to get back to finish my WIP stuff. I have too many going and did not finish anything in April. Just finished wallet I made which I just posted about today.
Would have never thought to use stripes or plaids…..beautiful! I want one now!
That turned out to be just gorgeous and I am sure he will like it very much. Bonnie has some of the most wonderful ideas. Thanks for sharing.
Hubby is right. love the front and back. Shirley
I love it! I have made this quilt using that pattern twice. Once was just assorted scraps and the other was totally PINK! I was trying to get rid of all my pink stash. I love your plaids! Makes me want to make on in plaid. Love it. I also the love backing, it is perfect for that quilt.
This turned out very pretty and the back is special too!
A quilt from upcycled shirts has been on my list for a while. Yours is wonderful
