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.
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.
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!!
