    That quilt is fabulous & your quilting only made it more so!

    If I thought owning an Innova LA would make me quilt like you do, I'd run right out & get one today, but since I know it's your highly hones skills that make your quilting so exceptional, I know it'sll never happen to me! You are a very inspiring person. I look up to you!

    Lori and i have worked together several times.. She is an excellent piecer!

    This is made from batiks..and they are a perfect bridge from one to the next...great color way...great texture!

    She wanted some ferns to go with the organic feel of the batiks..great choice..so i quilted ferns in the light areas of the bargello pattern and charisma curls in the dark areas...it just came to life!

    Love it!
    Thanks lori!
    gorgeous.....

    You don't really need a pattern to do a simple bargello. Just sew all the strips together in a nice order of colors as you choose. Sew the top and bottom of this panel together making a circle. Then cut strips from that circle, changing widths of these cuts as you go. I started with 2.5, and went down to 3/4 inch. Then you can get wider and narrower as you choose. Lay out the circles and decide how to sew them all back together. Open up one seam of each circle so you have a flat panel in the pattern you want. Mine went straight up and down again. I call it "Magic Mountain". I changed my mind a few times, which means I had to sew the strip back into a circle again and open it somewhere else.

    I'm back! My mountain slope had a nice curve to it because of the different widths of the strips. The center strip ended up to be 1/4 inch after the seams went in. I had very lights next to the mountain and upwards, and darks at the top of the mountain and downwards.
