    A few weeks ago, I posted on the board for some help with choosing colors for my very first attempt at a bargello quilt. What wonderful, helpful people we have here!! Took SEVERAL attempts choosing fabric, but we finally pinned down a color scheme. I learned SEW much through the process.

    I wanted to post my 'finished product'. The pattern is Barjelly Table Cover, by Beautiful Bargello. I purchased & downloaded the pattern off of Clotilde (the e-book came with severally very nice patterns). Pieced it using the 'tube technique'. After a bit of trial & error (let's just say, my seam ripper got some use, as usual!), here's the final project.

    SO, now how to quilt it????

    Your quilt is beautiful...seems like some curves in the quilting would off set the angular piecing.

    For simple quilting you can stitch in the ditch , or go diagonally through the colors, maybe using varigated thread.
    Very nice quilt!

    Thanks, but I forgot about some borders!! I'd certainly suggest this pattern for a first-time bargello person like myself.

    Beautiful colour selection...very restful, and has a gentle energy, bit like gently flowing water...anyway I digress...very cool quilt, gentle curves in a soft colour may work....Whatever you decide it will be delightful.

    You should really try one, and I'd suggest THIS one because you only need to pick out 7 colors. It's very simple and non-intimidating. My next one will be Surf Song. :)

    Just wanted to show you all that I got my borders on today, and it's just about basted & ready for quilting. I pulled the 'swirly' darker fabric from the bargello as a thin border, with a dark green larger outside border (fudging as I typically do). My thoughts at this point on quilting is to maybe follow after the swirly-theme on the fabric and do the same type of quilting to kind of tie it all together. It's kinda a fun springy pattern. Planning on trying out my 1920-something Singer industrial treadle for the quilting because of the larger harp-size. This is a good test before jumping into the queen-size quilt I have waiting for me.

    I had that same thought right off, waterfall or waves rolling in, depending on how you look at it. It is gorgeous!
