    I used a few batiks in this one and actually that was my first time working with batiks. I'm not totally decided if I like working with them, but they're so pretty I'm sure I'll use them again, many times, down the road. I bet a bargello made totally with batiks would be gorgeous. Make sure and post pics when you finish yours!

    Your bargello is beautiful...and you should be proud of yourself for stepping out of that comfort zone we all find ourselves in. I too have a bargello planned for DH....he is always drawn to them when I show him pics even though he wouldnt know what one was if I called it that. He just knows what he likes.

    Rachel, that is just over the top beautiful. I think you did a perfect job on it, and the colors are wonderful. I'm so glad I was able to be a bad influence on you. :D

    And I like the idea of the "Blame Eddie Club". I know my wife and daughters would want to join! They already have their own chapter here! :D :D :D

    That looks great! Your quilting looks great too. Glad you were able to get out of the comfort zone and try it!

    Eddie is an instigator, isn't he! But in a good way! He's a positive influence on many of us! :):) :)

    Because of him you have a beautiful quilt. Your color choices are perfect for this pattern...you must be thrilled. I think I need to find his post to find the name of the book. Beautiful work :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Rachel, your bargello is simply breathtaking. Take a bow on this one & stepping out of the box was scary at first, right? However, you did it, you learned & I don't see one mistake from where I sit. Will anyone in particular the recipient of this beauty, or will it be yours?

    Definitely! :)

    I can't wait to see your finished one! I know it's become a total pain in the rear for you but it's going to be worth it when you have a gorgeous finished project!
    It'll be worth it, but it's not going to be nearly as beautiful as yours!!!

    I wasn't a fan at all of batiks til I just made this quilt I'm working on. It is all batiks and I am so in love with them now. I get it. I get why everyone loves them. And you're right ~ an all batik bargello would be gorgeous. Let's get Eddie to do it!
