    Today was my last day camping. I didn't finish the quilt but I came VERY close. I began quilting it today. I decided to go with the lines since that is what most people here thought would be best. It was easier than I thought. The lines aren't as straight as I would like but I think they look okay. I tried to take a picture but it is hard to see. Only the bottom is done so far. The quilting does not show up very much which is good because it doesn't distract from the design. I skipped every other line but I may do them all.

    I have had so much fun on this vacation. I am really glad this quilt is red, my least favorite color, because I would have a very hard time giving it away if it was I color I love like purple :)

    So, this will be my last "Red Bargello" post. Thanks everyone for sharing this with me. All the tips and advice I got here were so valuable to me.

    I couldn't take a picture of the whole quilt because it is too heavy to hang. I will post in the picture section on Monday once the binding is on.

    I'm impressed, and I make a lot of Bargello's. Now my reds are screaming at me to use them! They are jealous of your reds. lol

    Tonight was the first time that I saw your post of this beauty. I just went through all of your posts and watched it grow. ( I have a very severe 3 day 40 hour work week and don't have time for this fun stuff!) It was wonderful to do this in a sort of "flip book" way. It is gorgeous! For not being a red lover - well, you could have fooled me. Awesome job! Congratulations. Back to real life now. I would love to make such good use of a vacation. Good for you! Your friend is lucky to have you.

    You have done an amazing job on this bargello. One thing that I have found when I do lines is that instead of doing straight lines I put just a little bit of a wave to them so that if I am off a little it blends in better. Try it sometime you might like the effect. I am working on a Bargello in the Round right now in purples and blues for my dear son. I will have to post a picture when I get in done.

    Thanks for sharing the process on this one.

    Have you ever considered piecing and quilting as a profession?
