    Ok, I survived "Butterfly Fancy" ~ now its time to get the other wedding quilt done for my nephew (Jess' brother) :)

    If you don't remember the original post, they are having a "hippy wedding" ~ so I asked what pattern everyone would think of when they think "hippy" ~ I have it down to two patterns, bargello or mosaic tile. Bargello is topping the list, and I've been collecting the fabrics for 3 months now...

    This will be a personal challenge for me, as I love both of their chosen colors, but I would not have normally put them together, per se... They chose crimson (his fave) and purple (her fave).

    So, let the creation begin... here is what we have for color choices, all four of us have been arranging order and rearranging order for the last week:

    there are four more fabrics in the wash, as soon as I get those pressed, they will be filtered in...

    I'm looking forward to your creation!
    Have you chosen which bargello pattern you'll use?

    yeah, I love both colors individually ~ but I never would have done something with "just" those colors... but its a special request from them, so I'll oblige LOL! Let's just say this one will be interesting! I had the kids and hubby all arranging the colors... it was funny, something got moved around each day!

    Luscious colors and fabrics! In the photo on my monitor, I see reds, blue-reds, red-violets, violets,and blue-violets. These will look very well together because they are analogous colors (next to each other) on the color wheel.

    Please post as you work on this quilt. I would love to follow your progress.

    I was a florist before I retired and my favorite combination was red roses and purple statice. I love the two colors together and always wanted to do my bedroom in them.

    Ok, so I have my old lady 15-91 clone out at the camper with me... (I'm not a fool!) and it starts pouring down rain today, out of nowhere... good time to, you guessed it, QUILT!

    So we got a start on the bargello wedding quilt... I am not following any pattern per se, I am just going to let it take me wherever she wants to go. :) That is so fun, especially on bargello designs!

    So this is what I have for my "test" to make sure the colors are going to play nicely... I like it! Not sure which way it will orient itself yet, have to get a little more groundwork done first...

    sorry the colors kinda went wonky there, not sure why... and yes, each fabric has either a crimson or a purple of some sort in it... I actually had about a dozen other fabrics too, but they didn't play nicely with the others, so they got put in timeout on the shelf. :)

    We have 16 fabrics we're working with... the one that keeps coming up as a rude blue is actually a very deep purple, it was overcast when I shot the pics, so it just doesn't want to show its pretty color
