I decided to start that Bargello that I've been wanting to make last night. I'm using 17 colors and will try to just lay it out so I can see how I'm going to make it. It'll probably either
1) End up getting taken apart and used as scraps or
2) Be absolutely beautiful!!! Here's a few pictures. Enjoy!

My vote is that it will be beautiful! You do incredible work, so how could this be any different? I love your color variations.

Well, Thank You All Very Much for the encouragement!!! and the vote of Confidence!!! I sure hope it turns out good! If not, I'll have to make a lot of 9 Patches! LOL I saw in the Billie Lauder video and in the Bargello booklet that I have, Not to take apart the seams a bunch at a time. Just take 2 apart and sew them, then take another apart and sew it, etc. But, since I'm not working from a pattern and I wouldn't know what I was "sewing up", I'm taking my seams apart so I can lay it out and see how I want it. This might be a big mistake, but I learn from my mistakes....Usually!
LOL I have 4 rows laid out so far and it looks.....Dumb.
I'll post more pictures as soon as there is "Developing News"! LOL Thanks again for the support!

Nice color selection!
Are you following one color for the direction you're going?
