Peacock Bargello


This was the project from a class Barbara took at The Quilted Garden the last two Saturdays of June 2006.

It was started the week of 2006-06-12, when Barbara picked up the kit, and cut all the strips prior to the first class on 2006-06-17. It uses 45 separate fabrics. It is also rather large at 84 by 90 inches (214 by 228 cm) without borders.

Barbara finished piecing it 2006.07.25, and added the borders a few days later. It then went off for finishing (backing, quilting, binding) by Catherine at The Quilted Garden.

Toile Backing

This one gets three photos posted, because I felt it needed them to be fully appreciated. This is the third of the series. It shows the rather impressive material used for the back of the quilt. The first provides a top down view. And the second provides a side view.

Barbara's first bargello, this was from the class she took.
