Links Bargello Quilt

  gail2
This is Gail’s Links Bargello quilt and you can find the pattern for sale here.  I love Bargello quilts, they have amazing movement and you can use your favourite color combinations to create a stunning quilt.  Gail gave me the go ahead to quilt it how I liked and at first I thought I would do free hand swirls but the more I looked at it the more I wanted to add more too it.  So I did a combination of swirls in the purple fabrics and feathers in the yellow/green fabrics. I did straight lines in the black blocks to divide the two designs and then added a simple feather to the narrow outer black border.

    I was able to get a good straight on shot and crop it to just show the quilt.

I used black So Fine thread on the black fabric, light green So Fine on the yellow/green fabrics and a light purple So Fine on the purple fabrics.  This time I used the same thread color top and bottom.

    1. I have quilted one quilt that was pieced by a serger and I hated quilting it. The seam were too thick at the intersections and that can break the needle. So I wouldn't recommend you do it that way.
