    Default Ocean Bargello...in progress

    Just wanted to post a preview of a work in progress. It is a gift for my son and future DIL who just bought a house together.

    Thank you Aurora, wish I was further ahead in the process. This is 3 days worth of cutting, sewing then cutting and sewing again. Tonight was the first night I stopped sewing before midnight. Tomorrow I need to pin and sew those strips before I can continue since this is only about a 3rd of the quilt.

    Your choice of rich colors are just perfect for this bargello quilt. Though you are showing us only a section of the quilt you are making it will be absolutely stunning.

    Thank you everyone.. It took about an hour to pick all the colors, I thought it was never going to end.. I want to try and finish the top before I leave for Boston on Friday.
