    The Bargello my DH and I hated doing!! Finished at last WITH picture!!!

    Ok -so its finally finished!!

    This picture does not do the colours justice!

    We have agreed not to do another Bargello - it wasn't HARD exactly but its a big quilt - about 100 inches square and it was very monotonous! Even for the two of us working together. The second picture shows the colours better!

    Wow, thanks for taking the picture. It is marvelous, big enough for a giant but glorious.

    I like the second colorway better (LOL - my computer distorts colors too!). I think it is very beautiful. I haven't tried one yet, but I am planning a bargello now. Yours is lovely. How do you both work on it? (I can't imagine my DH working with me harmoniously on a quilt.)

    It certainly shows all the work you did. It will be awesome on any bed.

    I think it is beautiful. How you managed to work side by side with hubby is beyond me. I don't even want mine anywhere near me when I am sewing.

    You did a fabulous job and the results are incredible! I think you would really like a bargello that has variety. Those are the kind I make - they are somewhat unusual and not symmetrical and I create the designs myself. The stitch in the ditch almost did me in, but I got it done and love the results. Maybe some other quilting would be more interesting.

    Thanks for sharing!!!

    A very pretty shared quilt. Haven't tried one yet. Waiting for someone to come up with a nice size block just to try.

    Very pretty. My Husband pays no attention to details, therefore he is not allowed to input anything into my quilts. He does like every one I make. I am a one Woman quilter.

    So glad the second picture of that gorgeous quilt was there - when I read your post and saw the first pic I thought, uh, yeah, I understand why they didn't like it....LOL. seriously, that's is a very pretty quilt and it does look labor intensive. Good job on gettin'er done.

    I feel the exact same way about my DH. I love him dearly but want him g-o-n-e when I'm sewing... LOL! It's wonderful, tho, that you & I yours can work together to produce such a beautiful quilt. And as for its size? Y'know what they say... "go big or go home"... LOL!

    I agree with this. Sometimes I ask him about color choices, but that is it. I am so glad that you showed the color correction.
