    How would this look with a Bargello curve to it?

    This is my own design and I've had it on the drawing board for over a year. So, the first quarter of 2013 was dedicated to making this oversized king quilt! I think the final measurements were 126 x 126. It still needs the binding attached, but that should go quickly - once I get it started, hee hee. BTW: my cameral stinks. To do the fabrics justice, I need to get a new one.

    I got out the walking foot and did a MID, oops, I mean SID. In case you can't deciper that, MID is: missed the ditch. I think the MID outdid the SID. Regardless, somehow I got this quilt squished into the arm of my DSM. It was a magic trick because there are two layers of high loft batting and I used minky for the back. Thus the reason for more MID than SID. Squish squish wiggle wiggle. It looks good as long as you don't get tooooooo close to the seams.

    The minky on the back makes it really soft and comfy!!! I'd use it again as long as I could find it at a good price. I only had 500 pins, and because I was worried about the minky shifting, I pinned this quilt over and over again with those 500 pins. There are well over 3000 squares plus all those strips in this quilt. I think I pinned most of the squares! BTW: can't spray baste minky. It wouldn't work.

    I would have loved to give this a bargello curve, but I thought I wanted the pieces the same size this time. If I do it again, I certainly want to "bargello" it!

    As you can tell, I really like blue. I am really into monochromatic themes. Something about varients of the same color really appeals to my senses.

    Oh, and can you find my quilt inspector? She is sniffing in the flagstones for a SNAKE!!! Our little beasty has killed several snakes, as long as she can catch them.

    Thanks for looking!!!

    Very nice - BTW you can spray baste Minky with 505. We do strip quilts in minky and spray baste. You always want to spray the batting not the fabric.

    This looks like Bargello to me. It is a lovely quilt. The Bargello I made had all the same size squares. How in the world did you design something this beautiful? You must have an engineering degree! Nice work.

    BRAVO!!! I love the design and the colors!! Beautiful quilt.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
