    I've made three bargello quilts so far and with each one, I have leftover strip sets (the sets you use to cut, piece and resew to make the bargello effect). I have quite a bit left and don't want to just toss them. Any thoughts or ideas of what to do with them or what you've done with them from your own bargellos? I added a picture of the three sets of strips I have. I do have some more, besides these ones but these are the smallest pieces of each set that I have to work with, just to give you some ideas of what I'm working with.

    There's three different sets here. The two smaller sets on the right do not match each other and the larger set on the left has some of the same fabrics as one of the smaller sets but it's not the same set.

    make more mini bargellos. like may be table mats or runners or save em all and them make a hurricane or tornado type bargello all wishy washy and mixed up. your imagination aught to get your creativity juices flowing. I love bargellos When I started quilting I made like 10 of them before I moved on.

    Tote bags, pouches, mini quilts, mug rugs. You can't waste those pretty strip sets!

    I've seen these quilts but never knew what they were called. My daughter is actually starting one for herself based off of a picture so maybe I'll do one along side of her and make some Mommy & Me time with the larger set! Thanks for the idea!

    Those smaller sets would be pretty in smaller projects like totes and such. Thanks!
