Extra special work! Bargello quilts, inspired originally by a traditional needlepoint stitch, are popular as a contemporary design. Instead of embroidery stitches, simple rectangular blocks of colored fabric, which appear to gradually shift in size and placement, imitate the needlework pattern. Varying widths of pieced blocks from a 1/4 inch sliver to a sturdy 2 1/4 inch block produce a gradual wave, sloping and shifting from left to right. By selecting mutely colored batik fabrics, C Jean Horst sifted the colors gently and painted a landscape - streams of clear water meandering down dark ruddy mountains. Cascading lines of fine quilting further enhance the image. To borders of sandy brown and moody plum batik fabrics tastefully frame the piece. Beautifully pieced and quilted with 8 stitches per inch and every row quilted. A masterpiece! A sleeve may be added so that it could be hung with the 70 or the 80 inch side to the top. Your choice.
