Bargello quilt is done

I finished the Twist on Bargello quilt!

You can find the book here on amazon

“Bargello quilts with a twist” is one of my favorite quilt books!

and the quilt on the cover is this one, which is my favorite pattern in the book, I’ve made SO many versions of this quilt over the years and it’s still SEW much fun to do as the result is so different each time depending on the fabric choices!

I used the left over fabrics for the backing

Then I long arm quilted double feathers and swirls on it (just to try something new- a new version of my feathers and swirls)
