    Bargello and Square in a Square

    Since I decided to give everyone a quilt for Christmas I had to make sure my brother got the best one. He has high special needs and I knew if it was just plain he wouldn't have much of a reaction. So I tried to make his all colourful and interesting so he would like it more.

    Its a bargello that I found on youtube - no pattern just a go with the flow bargello, which is perfect for me . With the leftover I made a baby quilt for a woman in my book club who just had a baby girl.

    Both are great, but that bargello is fantastic with the fabric choices. I can see the quilt inspector thinks so too. I know with the colors and the flow of the pattern stimulated his eyes/mind. You did great with it. Thank you for sharing
