    Another Twist and Turn bargello

    So happy to have this done. Taken me all winter but each of my 3 DSs now have a bargello quilt. Yes, this son is a Steelers fan as well as loving black. Quilted on a DSM and I think at 90 x 96 I won't be doing another quite this big for a very long time (will have to forget the FMQ difficulties in the middle before attempting this large again). Thankfully from a distance the flaws are harder to tell. This is from Eileen Wright's Twist and Turn Bargello Quilts book. Name:  2014-2015 076.JPG

    awesome, i'm still amazed by them.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
