    Hi guys, I'm signed up for a Bargello class in March at our LQS and would love it if anyone who has made a Bargello would please post a photo of it. Iv'e already contacted johnette about hers that she has in her avatar and she told me what I would need to make one. I bought 2 jelly rolls today and I hope they will work alright. Thanks in advance!! Jan

    Dawn, you're making me drool! Here's mine. They are really fun to make.

    It's quilted now, but I need to bind it.

    My aqua and chocolate one was 1/2 yrd cuts .. It was INCREDIBLY easier that the 50 string pieced other one. The aqua and chocolate is done in strata that yes you cut and reattach in different sizes.

    The 50 fabrics was 4000 pieces! NEVER AGAIN!!!

    Chele I LOVE yours I love the movement!!!!

    I have another one my horizon.. my son LOVES his mommas quilts and he is 13 soon to be 14 and I have a really neat one he has picked out.. Hopefully by the time he is 15 it will be DONE!! LOL

    I love it littlehud! I got jelly rolls by Fig Tree called Gypsy Rose and they are subdued. I can't wait to see how it will look. Thanks for showing it.

    WOW, Shadow, that's beautiful! I remember that one. Do you chose a pattern on how you get them to twist like that? I'm so curious about them. When I do one I want it to be spectacular! Thanks!!

    Love them all. Would love to make one but I'm so afraid I would get it messed up some how. I'm Dyslexic.

    Shadow.............I remember when you posted that bargello picture. I too, feel intimidated by them!! But, I got a book on them and am now searching for the time to do one. I also purchased the heart bargello book. How big did your bargello end up being? I noticed in the books it just has a lapquilt or a wallhanging.

    Those are all so amazing! I was looking at a pattern online last night and thinking of a large, blank wall in my living room that could use a wall hanging. These pictures have made the decision to try one.
