Rainbow Bargello Quilt Top Is Finished!

Hello Dear Blogging Friends,

I am pleased to tell you that I finished my Rainbow Bargello Quilt Top tonight! I'm sorry I haven't written since October 1st, but I've actually been very busy sewing and shopping, so I have quite a few blog posts to catch up on.

This is such a long quilt that it almost takes a village to display it.
My friend Beth, at left, helps me show off my finished top.

It is either a wide table runner or a skinny wall hanging.
In this photo, I may look tall, but I am standing on a chair.
I started this project at the end of June. It is a kit from Keepsake Quilting. The directions were good, the fabric colors were pretty close to the sample, and it was easy to put together. It is not a project for a beginner, but if you are familiar with strip piecing, you will enjoy it. I blogged about it previously here and here.

Where am I going to put a long, skinny wall hanging? Perhaps in my stairwell. Unfortunately, the other quilt in my stairwell is a rainbow pastel-colored bargello variation. Maybe my stairwell will look like a gallery, maybe it will look like a hot mess. It will be months before I get around to making a back and quilting this project, so it will be a while before we find out.

I will be linking up on Friday to Link a Finish Friday, Confessions of a Fabric Addict and CrazyMom Quilts. I am also trying a new linky party at 627 Handworks. If you come by for a visit, please leave a comment. I'd love to hear from you.

Pugs and kisses,

P.S. Happy Birthday Anna!
