    It's lovely. I would really love to try a Bargello. Was actually thinking of taking some paper to work and trying to make a design I could follow. I like tying, I have done it on a baby quilt that I made it turned out well.
    Well done. :thumbup:

    Thank you all for the great response! Here is the recipe I followed...

    http://www.quiltville.com/scrapbargello.shtml
    I emailed Bonnie and sent her a picture of how mine turned out and she wrote me back.

    Bonnie Hunter was actually in Jacksonville this weekend for the Quilt Fest and I did not even realize it was her until late Sunday afternoon. lol She has a lot more I want to try.

    Yes the backing is THICK. I remember snuggling under it as a kid and I know my son will probably snuggle under it now :)

    Barb_MO, I am going to attempt your bargello soon. Now that I have this one out of the way and sort of know what to expect ;) I have already printed out your tut!

    Thanks everyone!

    Lynn, it took me about a month or so I guess. I had to juggle it with my son :)

    Most definitely I will be making another one! I did this one to kind of give me an idea about the technique because I have never done tubes before. This next one I do will from Barb_MO's tut.

    Thanks, Barb, I will take you up on your help when I get started on another one. ;)

    Very pretty...I applaud you! I've been admiring the bargello for a while but am intimidated by it for some reason.

    The quilt is beautiful. I especially like how the butterflies seem to be fluttering over the fabric!

    P.S. The koala blanket is so cute, too!
