    I blame Eddie for getting me started on this one. Last month he posted that beautiful bargello Surf Song. I just had to order the book and try one myself. They're a lot of fun and I imagine I'll make more in the future. I have some regrets on my fabric choices but I know better now about what I'm looking for so the next one should flow a little nicer. Still having some trouble with wavy borders, and these borders needed mitered corners so there was another challenge, but in the end it wasn't a total disaster so I consider it a success. :)

    I challenged myself to do more free motion than a meandering stipple so on the main part I did vines with leaves. The small border has a lace like pattern and the outside has a simple string of flowers. I'm proud that I made myself step out of my "safe zone" and try something different. Sorry about the flash on that picture. My pictures were coming out with a weird blue hue so I used the flash. I didn't remember until I was back inside that I had my white balance set on "inside". :roll:

    On to the next project!

    Beautiful!!!! I love bargellos! Definitely on my to-do list, for MYSELF!!! I love this specific pattern - kind of a cross-over, or a link I guess. I think some of them are even called Links bargellos. Love the colors, and the quilting is great!!!

    Rachel that is gorgeous! I too have a bargello pattern and a stack of batiks waiting on me, just waiting for some black fabric that I ordered! And THAT's Eddie's fault too with his Surf Song! LOL
