Default Diamond Jubilee Bargello in greytones and blue

This is a joint effort with my MIL. Every year we make two quilts to help support the schools her grandchildren attend. They get sold on auction in the spring. This particular quilt is the Diamond Jubilee pattern. I chose the materials and cut the strips, and she enjoys doing the piecing. It's fun to work with her; we have very different tastes and I've learned to make allowances for her more traditional preferences and she's learned to trust my sense of color. It is hand quilted; she paid a local quilter to do that for us. Hope you enjoy looking at it!
