Well, the second DIL to-be has picked out her pattern of choice! I have been wanting to try a bargello quilt for awhile and now....have my chance!
As soon as the pattern comes in, we will start picking fabrics. She likes grays, blues and greens as well as teal, chocolates and greens. I am anxious to see what she picks for colors! The designer recommends tonals for this pattern and he uses Shadowplay. I really like the Shadowplay collection.
The wedding isn't until June, but never having worked with Bargello, I am anxious to get started on it. I finished the oldest son's wedding quilt top in 4 months of work, a lot of learning new processes with it. And, it was a batik and I had never worked with batiks before---love them now!
When I was posting the progress on the first wedding quilt (in March) people were saying I was going to have to top that one with the second son's (in June). I think she did it!
