    My Diamond Jubilee Bargello

    Thanks to all of you that encouraged me to do a Bargello. I jumped in and finally finished it, just hope there are no quilt police around. Not sure I like the colors but I thought it would be one my daughter would like. No, she chose a rag Christmas tree quilt instead. Oh well, maybe it will grow on me. My camera is not the best to take pictures but you can get an idea. I have to get it quilted now. Name:  Bargello (2) - Copy (640x480).jpg

    Well, the colors wouldn't have to grow on me!!! You did a wonderful job and your quilt is just beautiful! Good for you to take the leap into doing a bargello.

    It is spectacular. After looking at these pictures, I want to make one. I love your choice of colors and the pattern looks sooo complex. What was the name of the pattern? You did a fantastic job.

    The pattern is Diamond Jubilee Bargello by Nancy Smith. Her instructions are great.

    Beautiful quilt, I like the colors together. Watch out you may get dizzy quilting it. Nice flow.

    wow that is absolutely beautiful......I'm not even a big fan of green, but I love the combination. I purchased that pattern a while back, now can't wait to start. I may even still your color combo if you don't mind......do you mind sharing what the fabrics were????? Again, it's amazing. How many different shades of each color is that?
