    No. 8 - a blue bargello wall hanging

    I did not know that I could have UFO'S already. I have only been quilting since May 2017 and here is a finished UFO. The reason I finished this today was I needed the basting pins so I can quilt my sampler quilt from the Quilting Bee and this one was already sandwiched with a lot of pins:-)

    I lost interest in this because I am really not crazy about the fabric. This was made with 2 jelly rolls, and a lot of the fabrics had a metallic finish on it and I do not like that. It is as bad as dealing with glitter, which is something I just despise. I had silver flecks everywhere and even using sticky tape it was hard to clean up. Oh well, it is done now.

    I quilted this using soft "S" shapes following the path of the fabrics. I used my Singer 15-88 treadle to quilt, make the rod pockets, and bind it. It is not really FMQ because I used a walking foot.

    So here is my 8th finished quilt before binding:

    Here is a shot of the back. You can see the quilting lines and a couple of rod pockets. I put pockets on the short and long side so it can be hung either way.

    This photo is not as bright because it is dark outside - already. All that is left is to hand sew the pockets down to the back. It really did not take all that long to finish, maybe 4 hours total, somthat is not bad and now it is done.

    Thanks for looking

    I love it. The glitter gives it a sparkle. But it is hateful to clean up after......

    Nice job! After washing your quilt, most of the excess "glitter" should be gone.

    I think your bargello is lovely. UFOs seem to be common among us quilters...so many beautiful patterns and fabrics and not enough hours, hands or machines! I’m closing in on mine.

    Congratulations not only for finishing a UFO, but also for attempting a bargello as a newbie!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    That's lovely! I love blue, and think I just used some of that glittery fabric in some placemats. If it's a wall hanging, you probably won't have much trouble with the glitter once it's hung up.

    I think it's a gorgeous quilt. If you don't love it, I bet you can easily find someone who does! Blue is the most favorite "favorite color," and lots of folks love glitter, even if you don't.

    Please don't take me wrong. I really like the variety of blues and I thought it came together well. I just do not like working with the metallic finish or whatever it is on the surface. It gives visual interest for sure, but feels icky to work with.

    I took the blue bargello over to my folks home yesterday and hung it for them. I think it looks nice on the wall and gives them a nice spot of color, especially with the upcoming dreary months:-)
