I love bargello quilts and have admired the work of many on this board who have posted pics. I decided to take the plunge and here is my version of Eileen Wright's "Infinity" from her book Twist and Turn Bargello Quilts. It measures 50" x 57". It is a much easier technique then I anticipated but my gosh is it ever labor intensive......and thread intensive! (I went through 2 spools) :)
I posted a question earlier asking for advice on a background color because I was afraid my blues would blend in with a black background. I took everyone's advice and carried a color strip of my fabrics shopping and ended up going with a black marbled moda. I decided there was plenty of contrast. I'm thrilled with how this turned out!!
Now my questions is.....how do you quilt a bargello. There is so much thread in the quilt top already. What does everyone else do for quilting???
Thanks everyone for looking :)
