Back to the bargello

.
I spent all day sewing today. I finished the curvy bargello by adding the border.
I got the backs sewn together for it and the diamond quilt. This dropped out of the backing piece. She pounced on it and claimed it for her own.
 This is more like it.
Then I quilted the bargello. It went pretty fast as it really isn't that big (about 47" x 47"). I used a bright variegated thread and like how it blends in with the front.
You can see it better here.
From the back...I used this panto because it is looser and has lots of movement. With all the seams in it, I didn't want too tight a pattern. Anyone want to guess how many squares in this one?

I cut the binding and made a sleeve for it, so might actually get it finished! But not tonight...

I thought it was bigger than that so the pieces are really small. It is beautiful and sure to get many compliments. Aren't you glad you didn't have to cut it as individual pieces?

It's really gorgeous! I don't think I could ever make a quilt as complicated as that one!

Oh your bargello is wonderful. I know I"ve seen it somewhere - can you remind me what book or pattern it is.
