Mystery Unveiled

My March Mystery Weekend Quilt top is done!
Spoiler Picture Below
still sewing
and do not want to spoil the surprise
stop reading

I am really happy with this mystery pattern
and with my quilt top ...
I am calling this quilt
"Torrents of Spring"
The reference is to Eugene Bozza's "Aux Bords du Torrent"
from "Jour d'été à la montagne."
There is a 20 second clip of this on my playlist. 
It is a flute piece that I have enjoyed hearing my daughter play.
If you are looking for good directions for a Bargello Twist Quilt, these instructions were very easy to follow.
The fabric requirements are written for three jelly rolls of 40 strips that have two of each fabric, but I cut from some yardage I had in my stash.  A half yard of 20 different colors or fabrics works well.

Pattern by Jessica J.E. Smith also available Here
I am thinking that I would like to make this again as a monochromatic or two-color quilt.
This will be pinned up next to my machine while I am figuring how to add a custom border with the scraps I have left.

Linking up again at Live a Colorful Life  for

I think the question mark, the post layout and the flute music reference are all random enough ... ;)

and with

Fresh Poppy Design
even though I am late
just because I always  enjoy all the pretty pictures here.

  1. What a gorgeous quilt top - you can see so many images in the undulations. I always linger awhile on your post to listen to the music, thanks for sharing.

  2. Oh, wow - that's pretty spectacular! It doesn't look easy, but I'll take your word for it. Very pretty.

  3. Oh wow this is wonderful! Thank you for sharing!

  4. I just listened to 'Aux Bords du Torrent' on you tube. It's a lovely piece but sounds quite difficult to play. But your quilt is amazing. I'm not exaggerating - I was reading slowly down you post and when I saw it I actually gasped at how stunning it was. Congrats :)

  5. My Goodness Ms. Pat!!!
    Soooooo pretty and I think the music accompany's nicely. I love visiting your blog and listening to the songs.


    (psssst--jump over to my blog & peek at last weeks posting. There is a surprise for ya. ;) )

  6. The movement in this quilt is absolutely amazing!
