“Sonia & Philippe’s Wedding Quilt” by Cecile Allen

I created this Bargello quilt by enlarging an existing pattern and adding rows and borders to suit.  The quilt is made mostly of Bali fabrics and the colours were chosen to reflect the wedding couple's love of water.   The finished size is 92 x 84".

I love the blues, and other colors.  It does give one the feeling of warm soothing waves.  Tropical island sort of feeling.

Absolutely beautiful.

Gorgeous quilt, really a good color choice, I don't know if I could give this quilt away.  I would have to have visiting rights to it.

What a beautiful quilt.  I am thinking of making quilts for our married children for next Christmas and this would be a great one for our son and his wife.  They love to surf but haven't had lots of time to do it in the last few years.  Thanks for sharing

Thanks for all your kind comments.

I really enjoyed making this one - and it WAS very difficult to part with.  

I encourage anyone who's been thinking of making a Bargello to jump in.  They're really quite simple and come together very quickly.
