Dixie's Twisted Bargello....

Well, here is the companion piece to Dixie's Moonglow.  This Twisted Bargello wallhanging  was made by Dixie to compliment her quilt and will hang in the same bedroom.  I have a tremendous amount of admiration for anyone that will piece one of these beautiful quilts.  It just about makes my head explode just thinking about piecing one!  Although, I do have to say that I love quilting them, especially when I can feather it to death.....thanks Dixie!

Dixie's Moonglow.....

"Dixie's Moonglow" is finally done!  This quilt was definitely a labor of love...pieced by my customer, Dixie. It's from Jinny Beyer Studio;  Dixie made it for herself and it will reside at her house in Arizona.  I quilted it with many freehand double curly feathers and much stitch-it-the-ditch.  The juxtaposition of simple lines and curly feathers turned out perfect for this quilt.  It was sure hard giving it back to her....

I couldn't resist taking the picture outside yesterday in front of our tree, as the fall color was just so beautiful.  Just a peak to add to the beauty of her quilt.

Six different colored threads were used on this quilt.  Each stacked area of logs was quilted with it's coordinating color.

I love how the curved feather created a wreath around each pieced star block. 
 This was my favorite star!  Although I should say they were all my favorites, because the piecing was perrrrfect!!!!!

The black borders were all filled with freehand curly feathers too!  
With black thread....eeek, hard on the eyes...but well worth it!

Some of you have asked what longarm machine I is my A-1 Elite Longarm.

Stay tuned for more.... I'm now working on her coordinating Bargello Wallhanging Quilt.  I'll post pics as soon as it' done.  Thanks for the visit!
