    Attached is a photo of my first bargello attempt. It's going to be a wall hanging for my friend in Marana, Arizona. I miscalculated on the yardage and only got one repeat, but I think it's going to be just fine. I'll quilt it with pewter thread (nice and shiny). Thanx for taking a peek at it.

    Nice, I really like the blues. One of these days I'm going to try one. Maybe a wall hanging like you did. Thanks for the inspiration:)

    Very pretty quilt. You have done a great job. You friend will love it.

    To rotate your photos: If you have microsoft windows open you photos in Microsoft Office Picture Manager. In the tool bar at the top there is an icon to rotate 90 left or right. Click on one of them and your photo magically turns. Keep clicking till you have the photo right side up. Then you can save your photos and they will all be ready to look at without standing on your head or twisting sideways! Give it a try.
