Maxine made this lovely Two Fabric Bargello, a pattern designs by Susie Weaver. She used a brown/gold ombre fabric to go with the black, grey and white Effervescents by Robert Kaufmann.
Maxine asked that it be quilted with echo lines and have loops in the outer border. She made this quilt top in a class at a quilt shop in Texas were she spends her winters. She sent along a handout from the pattern on how to space the quilting lines so at was very handy! The quilt was the same size as my kitchen island so that was the perfect work area for marking all the reference lines. I did a lot of marking on this quilt top, not my favorite method when it comes to the quilting, but it really suits this pattern.
We had a lot of rain this weekend but the sun came out for a few minutes so I grabbed my helper and got a few outdoor shots in the wind!
I used two colours of So Fine thread on this top, a gold shade for on the ombre fabrics and black for the outer border and Effervescent fabric.
Batting is black Poly by Quilters Dream.
Love how green and lush everything is outside after a rain!
