    They are addictive once you get going.

    Betty is having some problems with sewing her strips together and asked me for help in another message thread, so I'm giving her the answer here.

    Betty, when you are sewing the sections together. you will start with the 3 1/2" strip that has #1 fabric on the top. Sew that to the 3" strip that has fabric #11 on top. then the next pair you sew together would be 2 1/2" #10 fab. & 2" #9 fab. Next pair is the 1 1/2" #8 fab. and 1" #7 fab. Next pair is 1" #6 fab & 1" #7 fab....so on down to the end of your stack. You will have one strip left over. cut the chain from the machine and sew the last pair (3" & 2/12" strips) to the left over (orhpan) strip.

    I was looking at page 4 #3 with the pile of strips in a chain on the floor.

    Barb_MO: This bargello with the yellows is stunning! Which layout or type is it? I've only made 2 using the "twisted" layout. Dawn @[email protected] Thanks

    I have done several different bargello quilts, but decided to use this one because there are several possibilities for laying it out to get different designs from four completed sections of the quilt.
    check out the beginning of the tutorial, http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-41828-1.htm
    If you have any questions, please post a message there for me and I'll help if I can.

    Go into the home page, down the bottom you will find a section
    'All User-Defined Sections'

    The beginning tutorial is here. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-41828-1.htm (I didn't start that message thread) the other tutorials I started and they would be easy to find if you click on my name and check out the postings I have made. I haven't created many new posts so the Bargello tutorials will stand out.

    Barb, I finally got my first section sewn together. Not sure I am real happy with it; I will just have to see. Don't see a place here to send pic.

    Date on my camera is wrong!

    I like it very much. This is going to be very pretty. Am anxious to see another panel done.

    I have 2nd panel done. Layed them out together. Pic does not show the colors and bright as they really are. But I have changed my mind, I think I will like it very much. I'm getting excited now. Thanks, Barb.

    I thought so....it does really look nice. I would like to see it as one panel placed on top of the other without turning it. Could you do that and post another pic?
