~ Heart Bargello Quilt ~ Its Finished ~

I have been hard at work on this quilt. The quilt was quilted by some one that didn't really know what she was doing . I hated the way she quilted it so after much time to digest what I needed to do and after having to take care of my daughter that needed surgery I got busy ripping out all the quilting . It took awhile because you have be so careful to not tear the top. The backing was ruined but that life, I can live with that. So after new borders and new batting, backing I got started quilting this the way I wanted it done in the first place .

I divided the quilt into quarters. To do this I had to remove the borders. Then added the borders onto the 4 pieces and started planning the quilting which is a pretty simple design. It was done freehand too.

I really can't show the whole picture of it just yet . I really want my Godson and his wife to see it first then I will post lots of pictures . I must say,I am happy with it !!

I need to thank some of the sweet ladies here that helped me through this process. I did remove the post with the awful pictures of the quilt so I can't remember everyone that sent a comment. I want to say that if it wasn't for Shannon this quilt would be in a landfill somewhere by now. She was such a huge help and did offer to quilt it for me.
Thanks Shannon !! All your little hints really did work !!

I'm glad you reassessed and didn't throw the quilt away. Honestly, when you first said you threw it away because of how it looked, my heart hurt for someone out there that may have enjoyed a warm quilt, such as a homeless person. But, I'm glad you came to your senses! ;-)

Well done on your perserverence. After being so upset, I'm sure I couldn't have done what you have. I am really looking forward to seeing more pictures.
