    A few months back I got a great deal on bundles of fat quarters.$1 per bundle-5per bundle from light to dark. yellows pinks greens blues purples

    I wanted to do a bargello, but have been too afraid to start cutting, I didn't want to ruin all that fabric.

    Well, this past weekend, I bit the bullet, I started cutting the strips.
    Then sewed the strips together..... and ironed all the seams in the same direction. Is that the correct way, the same direction? I hope so. Well, I've just cut strips again... I'm not using a pattern, I'm just wingin' it as I go.
    I'm liking the look of it so far, not near as complicated as some of the beautiful bargello's I've seen posted here, but I'm pleased with how it's turning out so far.
    I used the colors exactly how they were in the bundles, I see one that looks out of place, but thats where it was in the bundle, and I really dont want to unsew every strip to move it.
    Any suggestions? Would you move it?

    Thanks for looking!
