Beautiful. I like FMQ lines that follow the design. I'l like to hear what other people do in bargello quilts.

Very very pretty. A Bargello is on my 2013 bucket list. I'm curious to see the suggestions you get for quilting.

generally with bargello's the design is so busy that the quilting lines don't really show up much- an all over curvy design would work fine- (real detail quilting) would just be lost. you could do wavy lines following the waves of the design- so you continue the flow. it is a very nice bargello...it looks like the exact fabrics that are shown on the pattern cover---was it a kit?

It's gorgeous. I'd never be able to do it, I'd have to take motion sickness medicine LOL.

Gorgeous Bargello!! You did a fantasic job. Maybe just follow the design, diagonally through the squares stopping where each colour stops. Looking at other pictures of that bargello, I can't find any that show the quilting
