    Very pretty! Let us know how the quilting goes - sounds like a win/win for both of you!

    do you have a link for that tute, this is something I've been wanting to try?
    (yes, I know that's a stupid question because a search would find it, and I hate to use this as an excuse, but I was hit in the head, a link would just make it easier)

    I don't want to rain on your/her parade, but you should ask to see samples first. She told you it's a new long arm, so she may not be experienced yet.

    I am new at this. Consequently, the following question is probably not too intelligent. What makes a quilt a bargello quilt?

    Very pretty. I did a Lighten Strikes. It was a bit of a challenge with the concentration. I ended up with one very bright yellow in the wrong spot. I couldn't stand it so I remove the one 2" block. Fortuantely the LQS had one fat quarter left of all the colors I used and, yea, it was the one I needed.
    Let us know how the quilting turns out. I liked the idea of asking for samples. I've heard horror stories about other people having bad quilting experiences.

    where can I see Barb's tute? My husband want me to make a bargello for our king size bed.If I mess it up , that's a lot of fabric down the drain.

    A Bargello is done by sewing strips together and cutting them into different widths. You stagger the colors and the widths for the effect you want. I usually sew them into a cylinder and cut, then take out the seam to make the design fit. I hope this explains it. I'm sure someone else can explain it better.

    I know what it is but I want to see Barb's tutorial on how to do it. I'm not real good at reading the directions I'm better at watching.

    Very nice love the colors. How awesome for you both. She gets to practice and use her new toy and you get your quilt quilted.

    Beautiful quilt, and how lucky can you get to run into a generous LA Quilter. I just priced those suckers, of course I want the all the gadgets, found out it is way out of my league.

    Wow! That is awesome! I really love the pattern and your color choices. I just finished my first king size quilt.
    I chose to piece both sides of the quilt - something I didn't know you could do when I started quilting just over a year ago. The dimensions of the finished quilt are 110"x116". The quilt has approximately 3689 rail pieces plus a 3 piece border and binding. It took me just about 8 months to finish. During that time, I also completed 3 crib quilts, 4 lap quilts, 1 twin quilt, 3 hot pads, and 1 purse. I have a short attention span so I tend to do 2 to 4 projects at once; switching off from one to another as I get board.

    I am already working on 3 new ones but nothing as awesome as yours. You go Girl!

    Wow! Very Good work. I have never tried a Bargello, but I will someday. It's on my list. Something else gets in its way all of the time. Too many quilts, too little time. :)
