    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Nice job. That is a difficult pattern for a first project but looks like you nailed it!

    I'm pretty sure there is a link on this site, for a great looking and easy bargello. I made one but don't have it quilted yet.
    Try searching in "tutorials."

    Welcome to the board. Your double wedding ring is beautiful. I am totally amazed at your work for a first quilt. I've never made a double wedding ring or a bargello but I know yours will be awesome.

    your runner is beautiful. love the pops of color in with the blues.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Wowzers, great job, I wouldn't have attempted a double wedding ring for my first attempt. You go girl. Your bargello will be fantastic.

    You are ambitious...your runner is wonderful. I started quilting in 2011 and have yet to make a double wedding ring or a bargello. Good luck and don't forget to post photos.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Beautiful job on the DWR!! It's on my bucket list but haven't tried it yet. As to the bargello--I have made one of those from directions found online. It was from a fabric company and now I don't remember but it started with W. I wondered at the time--the directions said to always start stitching the strips at the same end. Figured I'd end up with a curve and I sure did! Toward the end of the big strip there is a definite curve. Otherwise the directions are very good. Just alternate the direction you are stitching and it will come out well. Bargellos are fun and create some really pretty designs.

    You could also go to youtube on 'how to make a bargello'. I'm sure some smart person has posted something.

    I have made that Scrappy Bargello several times with Jelly Rolls. It always makes a beautiful quilt, and it's very easy.

    This is one of my favorite you tube vids for bargello (by Angela Walters) she makes it look easy:

    Your DWR is fabulous!

    for some reason, I think the F&P link isn't working, but it's easy to find on YouTube

    Here is a link to a very helpful video.
    Quilting is definitely not for the faint of heart.

    I made my first Bargello 3 years ago and was hooked. I have two suggestions for you.

    The first is to buy a book by Eileen Wright called Twist and Turn Bargello Quilts. The book has great instructions and about ten Bargello patterns. One of the patterns is for a place mat and is designed for a first time Bargello maker. She walks you through every step very carefully. I bought my book on Amazon. The first quilt I made from her book was Surf Song. You can't go wrong with this book.

    My second suggestion is a free pattern called Serenity Bargello. Here is where to get it. It's instructions sort of assume you already understand the Bargello process. But it is free....


    http://www.tqmproducts.com/Data/Site...attern2015.pdf

    I am going to attach a picture of my Surf Song from Eileen Wright's book. It is the first picture. The second is one of the quilts that I made from the Serenity Bargello pattern. I sort of made mine larger than the pattern suggested, but it is basically that pattern.

    Maybe the pictures will help you figure out what you want to do. Like I said, I am hooked. I am working on my 17th Bargello right now, an original design though...no pattern.

    Have fun! (Can you tell I like purple??? )
