Scrappy Bargello Quilt Top and AQC 2016

Just finished another scrap quilt.

This is another of the free patterns from Bonnie Hunter, Quiltville website.

Using 2 1/2" X 16"  strip pieces, that is all you need to assemble this top.

I had a lovely day at Australasian Quit Convention yesterday.
 
They had many quilts on show, many vendors and many well known quilt teachers such as Kimmy Brunner, Victoria Findlay Wolfe, Laura Wasilowski, etc.

 
I took a few pictures but did not remember to note the maker's name, so here are a few..

Peekaboo Teddy Quilt

 

Made this baby quilt for my cousins daughter who is expecting a baby next month.
The nursery d├ęcor is teddy bears, so I hope it fits well.
I made this very same pattern about 19 years ago for my other cousin's son and from memory I think it was a McCalls Quilting magazine.
 
It was all machine appliqued, pieced and quilted with the exception of a little embroidery on the face.
 I am happy with the result.
