Beautiful Bargello by Dianna

Bargello made by Dianna in Autumn colors
How gorgeous is this quilt!!!
A labor of love

I first met Dianna in Honey Run Quilters last year
as she was picking fabrics for this quilt top. 

 Dianna added a double flange to her borders
made with two colors of Radiance. The Radiance was
added to the blocks as well which really shows off the quilting.
Dianna embroidered family names along the bottom border. 

A matching pillow quilted with the same design
using a Glide thread in Desert Sunset for the top
and Gold in the bobbin to match the Minkee backing
Love how the quilting looks on Minkee
Dianna found this extra wide Minkee at Honey Run Quilters
which was perfect with no seams! Yea

Thank you Dianna

Sandy's quilt is also finished this week as well as one for Betty delivered yesterday during a wonderful workshop with Lynn Wilder of Sew'n Wild Oaks. Lynn posted a pic on her blog as our guest speaker during her lecture on Thursday at Annie's Star Quilt Guild meeting in Chico, CA. Here is the link. Lynn also included a link to her HST video taped on The Quilt Show. Friday was Lynn's Patchwork Math workshop. We had a good turn out and it was so much fun! 
It was really wonderful to meet Lynn and take her workshop. I've been following Lynn's blog for some time and it was really cool to meet! Thank you Lynn and Gail, her partner and sister. It was a wonderful meeting and workshop. I learned so much and am looking forward to putting that math to work very soon. Today however, was a day of working at the longarm to make up for taking yesterday off. Stay tuned for more about the workshop with pix on Lynn's blog as well as on my blog Ramblin' Rows.
Enjoy your weekend! 
Tot Ziens, Jo    


  1. Dianna's quilt is absolutely stunning!
    The quilting looks terrific too and must feel so wonderful with that Minkee batting.

  2. I just finished binding the Eagle quilt mentioned above. Just love, love, love the quilting pattern you used, Jo. It echoes the eagles' wings, as you mentioned, but looks so firm and masculine (if I dare use such a word in these days!). Another job well-done by my favorite long-armer!
