FINISHED QUILT: 89˝ × 96½˝
This gorgeous Bargello quilt pattern comes from Braided Bargello Quilts by Ruth Ann Berry! Enjoy!
Canoeing the Manistee River near my home from Rainbow Jim’s Landing to the US 131 Bridge is a six-hour ride. The trip is only a few miles as the crow flies, but the river twists and turns and folds back on itself, sliding in and out of oxbows and connecting with smaller creeks so that its map looks like a blue ribbon that got all tangled up.
For this quilt, I chose a more subdued color scheme than I usually use. I started with rich gold metallic-etched prints for the background and then picked out a range from peach to rust and dusty-blue color stories to scribble over them.
