Default Designing a Bargello

A few of you Bargello fans have been taking steps to design your own quilts. Having made a couple of dozen bargellos, I too took the leap. I just wasn't happy with the final results but I made it for a friend and she is delighted with the quilt. The quilt didn't match what I had envision in my mind. You will see the design I made using EQ5 (picture is last), then the strips cut and the last picture is tweaking the borders. Hope this helps someone with some inspiration !!

before you speak T.H.I.N.K. T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.
