Designer: Ruth Blanchet
Finished Size: 35" x 52"
This design lends itself to any color combination. Imagine using the primary colors red, blue and yellow or the secondary colors green, purple and orange. You can also use just two color gradients making the two outside links of the same color set. The ideas are endless.
This pattern comes with full details on how to piece and quilt this beautiful design and also includes a full color insert grid so you can follow the directions with ease. If bargello is your thing, then this design is a must for your collection.
