    Inspiration for bargello quilt

    I make knitted dishcloths, and while I was making one like this, I realized that these colors would look beautiful in a bargello quilt. All the shades of color that you would need are in the yarn. I don't have plans now to make a bargello, but when I do I think I'll use these colors. Sorry about the shadows. I guess I should have used flash. I thought they were in sunlight. Photographer I am not!

    Sorta like this one?

    This was my first Bargello a few years ago. It's a small wall hanging and the colors are more purple than blue. My inspiration were the Crocus that just came into bloom.

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
