Today I had to share a quilt from one of my students. Currently I have running my Bargello Seasons online class at Quilt University - this is always a popular class and it shows by the work that is created in it. Jo Dickson is just one student in my class this semister and is delighted to share her work with us all. Her Bargello in Spring (the first bargello of the series) is all complete and slightly different to the usual Spring Bargellos.
