Bargello Bed Runner

diana1

This is Diana’s Bargello bed runner and the pattern is called Southwest Movement. I love the colors in this quilt and the fact they are batik fabrics doesn’t hurt!   I quilted free hand swirls using a brown variegated Lava thread across the whole quilt to add texture without taking away from the piecing. It’s been cloudy and rainy here all week with no end in sight.  So I found a dry moment to get some pictures but they don’t show the quilting that well but the colors are very true.

  4. Kathy: Wow! Beautiful colours and the quilting really sets off the bargello journey. And rain... who would have known we would exchange snow for rain this year! But at least we can get outside for a bit each day. :)

  8. tmfair5 - The pattern Southwest Movement is designed by Wendy Strumwasser. I didn't include this info in my post as I could not find any reference to this pattern online anywhere. Diana said she purchased this pattern when she was in Las Vegas, so hope that helps.
