    Hi!
    I posted about a Bargello the other day. I got the top done, and am wondering about it now. Do you think the colors blend in too much? Also, I have some fabrics left over,(the strips I posted of) and I think I could make it a bit bigger with them. Do you think it'd be good to do this, or save the strips for another day?

    Thanks!!
    Emily

    Hi Emily, I don't know much about Bargello but I thought they were SUPPOSED to blend. In any event I like it a lot :D
    As for making it larger that really depends on where you plan to use it.
    Good job! Thanks for sharing :D

    You could make pillow shams and decorator pillows to match the quilt with the strips you have left over.

    I love it. I wouldn't change a thing. It is beautiful. My favorite color too. If you get tired of it send it to me. I'll take really good care of it.

    I think it looks very nice. Of course, blue is my favorite color. But I would still like it, even if it were pink. :thumbup:

    I couldn't imagine where your strip set colors were going til I saw it in the Bargello. Wow, what a great surprise. I'm anxious to do one when I get time to quilt again.

    Got remodeling going on around here so I can't take time to quilt. I'm having withdrawals so I enjoy cking out everything on this site. Pictures, chat, tutorials, etc.

    Emily,

    I think it's breathtaking!!! That's the wonderful thing about bargellos - you never really know what you have until you get a panel done - and then you are delighted!!
