Finished Bargello!!!

This is SO exciting! I have finally finished the bargello quilt and given it to my grandparents! I went to visit right before Christmas and gave it to them for their Christmas gift! I think they liked it, but I am not so sure that they will use it. Hope so!

Here is a picture of my grandparents with the quilt on their bed!

Here are some pictures of the fabrcis that I used. It took some time and careful planning, but I think I got a pretty good combination.

My Grandparents are in need of a new quilt for their bed, since the one on it now is coming apart. I decided that it would be a better idea to make them a new quilt instead of fixing their current one. My grandfather has always enjoyed the bargello pattern (from what my mother says), so what a great way to give him his very own!
His favorite color is brown (or tan), so I decided that I could start with those colors. Their curtains are white with rose colored trim. There are some other colors swirled in with the rose, so I decided to add some of those colors as well. As soon as I finish the tree skirt I am working on for my cousin, (another granddaughter of theirs), I will begin working on this bargello! I am so excited!
