binding into the night

Eve is on a visit to the Netherlands--she is staying on the vanStraalen farm in the north, near Groningen, where I stayed on a youth exchange in 1977. Our families have sent members back and forth ever since. Eve got to meet Lucy and her family too!
I wanted quilts to send over, and this bargello adapted from Bonnie's instructions was finished about 0200 before Eve left. Lucy got the pink one from the last post.
(blogger's spell check doesn't like "bargello"--it suggests "bordello"!)

I love this quilt and told several folks in the Netherlands about it (when I was there a couple of weeks ago). I suggested that they could get used shirts from a Goodwill type of store. Mostly they just looked at me strangely - apparently they don't have such places or they didn't know of them. Hmmmmm.

I really like what you have done with your snow day "bordello'!!
Well done getting it finished. The previuos post one looks fantastic with all that detailed work on it-it really looks like it is moving! Tracey

I ran across the spelling issue when I was posting too...I thought it was a riot but my DH just looked at me funny. Glad it wasn't just me!

The plaids are great in this quilt. Really like the piano key border.

I did my bar-jello (wonderful spell-check) in plaids too.
