    I just finished the last seam on this and wanted to show you all how it came out. I asked for advice from the board on color selection. Some of it I took and some of it I didn't. The board didn't care for the gold I was thinking about using, so I left it out. The board also said the white was too much. I ignored you and can now see that you were right. The white is too bright.

    I had no pattern. I just watched Billie Lauder's video and jumped right in. (One of my many bad habits.) This was fast and easy. I'm ready to do it again. Maybe with a pattern even!

    Next thought.. The white is certainly too bright for this quilt. I agree with that, but I'm wondering how it would look if nothing really blended. Bright primary colors all in a bargello. What do you think?

    Wow! I'm very impressed you did that without a pattern - it's beautiful! Definitely do more, as I'd say you are quite talented at Bargello's! I love it. And the white is fine.

    Looks great. The white is a little much but......
    I have never done a bargello quilt. I imagine it would look pretty with bright primary colors. (I like those colors anyway)

    I think it's great as is. You are like me, I dance to my own tune when it comes to patterns.

    It's really nice. You should try a scrappy one ....I did one a few years ago and it came out neat ans was a great way to reduce my stash.

    I disagree about the white. Actually I agree and disagree! It hink it fits fine toward the top where you have the lighter colors, it just doesn't transition as well at the bottom between the two dark colors. So you learned a lesson and next time you'll do it different! It's still a beautiful quilt and whoever uses it will love it!
