It's Officially Fall ......

I had a very busy weekend. I didn't make it up to my sewing room all weekend long.

Imagine my surprise when this mess greeted me yesterday morning.

Someone had time to hang out in the sewing room this weekend.

It's officially fall, can't think of a better day to introduce you to quilt #18.

Here's a close-up of the center, my favorite part.

This quilt was quilted by hand by a very talented friend in my quilt club. It's the only quilt that I've made that has been hand quilted. I just love to admire the quilting from the back.

This is how she quilted the borders.

The pattern is called "Twisted Bargello" by Chris Timmins.

This is one of those patterns that looks complex but is a breeze to piece. If you can cut and sew straight lines you can make this quilt.


  1. OMG! That rascally Cooper! Did he just upset the trash can, I hope?

    What is the frame you are using to photograph your quilts?

    I love your bargello.... I really should finish mine......

  2. Oh my gosh! That hand quilting is amazing! I've always admired beautiful hand quilting. I just don't have the tenacity to do it.

    And what did Cooper get himself into? A bag of scraps? He must have had a field day. He doesn't even look the tiniest bit remorseful.

  3. i'm pickign my jaw up off the floor. Holy Moses that looks sooo intricate!!!!

  4. Oh my goodness, what a mess! But such a cute doggie, how can you get mad? Wow, your bargello quilt is just stunning! I have a hard time believing that is easy!!!

  5. Beautiful quilt! It is gorgeous! The hand quilting is stunning as well.
    I received my pattern today. Your dog is too cute!

  6. Absolutly amazing. I can never get the nerve up to make a bargello but oh they are so beautiful.

  7. You did a fantastic job on piecing this quilt. Myself and three friends worked on making one a few years ago. Mine looked great but actually didn't want to lay very flat. It was a lot of sewing. There sure is a lot of hand quilting on this.
