    It is not the fancy ones that I have been seeing on here, though. But it turned out great, I think. My strips were cut at 2.5" only and these were scraps I had left over, plus some fabric I bought from Bev on here :) and the border was from a box I bought from moonrise. Thanks ladies!

    Anway, I did not quilt it, I tied it. The back of the quilt is an extremely heavy blanket that I found in my closet. I have not used that blanket in years, so I thought I would give it a face lift and put my Bargello on it. I really tried to quilt it. On my first row of stitching, I got half way and I could not get the blanket through my machine. So I instead of working up a sweat and getting my bloodpressure up, I stopped and ripped out those stitches and tied it instead.

    I hope it looks good to everyone else :lol:

    Very nice. Beautiful bargello and good to know that a blanket can be used that way. I have a couple that have seen better days but are not ready for the rag bag yet.

    When I first saw it I thought you must have done a lot of fussy cutting on it, the colors just pop out, I IS beautiful, you know it is going to be warm. You did a great job. Theresse
