    bargello for my daughter

    I had so much fun picking out the bright fabrics for this Dereck Lockwood pattern. bargello quilts are so easy to make, I love the flowing look of them. I surprised my adult daughter with this on her bed when she got home from work.

    Beautiful! Are you adopting daughters????? A bargello is on my 'to do' list, just haven't gotten the nerve up to try one yet.

    Which pattern of Dereck's is this as I love the colors you used and am looking for something like this for a friend who loves the modern look. Went online to check out his patterns and couldn't figure out which one it was.

    Thanks. Love, love, love this one and the colors you used. Am working on a bargello I designed myself and they're not as hard as I thought, just lots of sewing and seam matching.

    The bright colors appear to work together quite nicely. Job well done.
