    Need help to finish my first bargello

    I fell in love with this Bargello quilt "Melinda's Heart" after seeing somebody on the QB show us hers. I lost track of her with this new board.
    This is my very first Bargello & I had to pick a very complIicated one to start with. LOL. I fell in love with it though & became obsessed with working on it.
    I just need to put one more border on it then have to deal with backing. My question to you is how do I plan to finish quilt it? What would a longarmer do? I've not worked on a queensize before and am at a loss.

    This is my first post on the new board & am not sure I can get pix in so I'm not sure how this will turn out.

    Thanks, Pat

    I see where to add the pix then try to upload it but can't see when it's done.

    I love bargellos and would love to see yours, and this is what I do to upload a picture. First you have to be sure that your picture is small enough. Then, go to the bottom of this thread, to QUICK REPLY, and write in what you want to write, then go to the icons just above where you are writing, and click on the INSERT IMAGE icon. It should be the 4th from the right, and when you hold your mouse over that, it should say, INSERT IMAGE. When you click on that you will have a box appear, make sure the highlighted part is on FROM COMPUTER, and not from URL, and then click on BROWSE, and that should take you to your pictures section on your computer. and click on the picture that you want to insert. The info will appear in the box beside BROWSE, and then you click on UPLOAD FILES, just below the box that contains your picture info. Your picture should appear in this box, where you are writing info about your picture. This method of posting pictures is easier, IMHO, than the MANAGE ATTACHMENTS button. And if you want to load multiple pictures, you can, also you can label each picture as they load. Once you get the picture/pictures loaded, you go to the POST QUICK REPLY button below where you have typed in info and the picture. Good luck and I hope that I have explained this clear as mud. lol Hope to see your picture tomorrow.

    A home is built of peace and love,
    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    I'm sorry your quilt didn't post. I love looking at bargellos but I am not brave enough to attempt making one yet.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Hey Spartan Quilter,
    How small should the photo be? Do I measure in real inches? EX: The photo scanned in my computer is 4 X 4. Is that the size it will appear once uploaded? Thanks!

    Somewhere on here I read they were supposed to be something like 400 x 680 px or around there. Wish I knew where I read that at.

    Here are Patrice's instructions on how to resize photos.
