Summer Bargello Project

Now that the warm weather has finally arrived most of my quilting projects have been placed on hold and needlepoint is worked on at night and during road trips. This summer I plan on completing 6-8 pillows using various Bargello patterns using wool and silk fibers. This afternoon I finished the first pillow.

Front created with six different alpaca/wool blend yarns on a 14 point canvas, backed in black silk and bound with a slate gray silk cording

I have also started the second pillow top that is being stitched in six shades of purple and three of yellow. Since my honey is away at a conference for the next week I should be able to finish the second top and move on to a more complex piece soon.
