The piecing is quite simple on this quilt, but it makes a great effect. The solid colored bars are approximately 3 5/8" wide, by up to 19" long. These are then framed with 5/8" black bands. The bars are off set into the turquoise background with the top section being slightly narrower than the bottom. Rose asked that I quilt the bars by stitching in the ditch (SID) to outline the bars and also the black bands. The white center bars look like they are lit with electric lights, but that isn't the case. Just extra light reflecting.
To accentuate the bars section of the quilt, I mimicked the quilting that I had done around the bars in the open turquoise section
