    When I decided to make my first ever bargello quilt. I thought I had better make something that I really liked. I thought this because I figured it would be the only one I ever would make. Much to my surprise I loved working on my Bargello, and I am now "Hooked on them" This is my first, but most certainly will not be my last. They just look hard, when really they aren't. And the good thing with this one, I can hang it more then one way

    Karen :D :D

    WOW is all I can say. Would have driven my poor old eyes batty.
    Your colors are so vibrant and 'fallish'. Very nice.

    Woah, that's amazing, I've even avoided doing the small patch because it looks quite tricky, Well done you must be so proud.

    Oh, that's beautiful!
    I'm dying to make a bargello quilt. Actually, I want to make one like Shadow's ever since she posted it I've been drooling over it. I've never made one before, but I did buy a book with instructions. I just haven't had the time to actually start one...lol!
    How big is yours, and how long did it take you to make it?

    I think it's stunning, and I hope that it isn't your 'last Bargello' seeing as you seem to have enjoyed doing this one.

    I made a Bargello many years ago. My problem now is how to quilt it. It was fun and I think I will do another one except smaller. I went for a queen size quilt. The one I want to do now is a wallhanging. Yours is very pretty, and the colors are so rich looking. How are you going to quilt yours?

    Very nice. I'm familiar with bargello from needlepoint. Now you've gotten me to add a bargello quilts to my "wanna make" list.

    Hopefully it's not your last because that's beautiful! I tried to do one but my cutting skills are not up to par and the block didn't look good. Great job!!!
