Default My Bargello Adventure

I had wanted to try a bargello quilt. Two friends were doing this one, so I jumped on board. We all used our batiks, but had our own colorways. I had to learn that you start with the center row (the 'spine'?) and then add rows on either sides to build it out. There is a chart to follow for color placement. It's easier than it looks. All the 'heavy lifting' was done by the designer.

I'll be adding borders before I quilt it.
Hope you like it!

I was thinking of you while watching the news about Ida yesterday. So glad to see you on the board and safe.
All that aside, I love your colorway on this bargello. It is really a masterpiece.

Your quilt is gorgeous already. I can't wait to see it completed. I love the colors and how you have laid them out.

Why how sweet of you, Red. Yes, we made it through the storm ok. We lost power for about a day and a half, so of course the internet was gone too, except on our phones. Itís so nice and quiet when the power is out.

Thank you to everyone who said nice things about my first bargello. It wonít be my last!

Funny what many of you said about liking the color way. I just used the batiks I had on hand. With a pattern like this, really any colors come out spectacular.

Beautiful! Was it hard to iron the strips with all the seams? I have a bargello quilt on my bucket list.
