    Gosh, picking out the fabrics for a quilt is usually my favorite part, but this task has been daunting! BUT this is how it's going to go...no more changes. :roll:

    I have over half the strips cut, then discovered one batik was short--35" rather than 40-42". I didn't want that to cause troubles later, so I took about seven fabrics to a Mennonite shop this morning and found three more that had possibilities... I used two here.

    I did cut one fabric the opposite direction--NOT selvege to selvege because of the print. I'll be careful--and batiks don't seem to stretch the way normal kinds of cottons do.

    I still have a lot of cutting to do... but some day I'll be back with some photos of this done! :thumbup:

    These are not normally my colors (oranges/rust) but I really love them in this combination! I think this is going to be an absolutely stunning quilt! Best of luck on this project! I am nowhere near brave enough to attempt a bargello.

    Thanks. It was so funny (well, funny now, frustrating at the time) every time I looked at the fabrics through the camera I'd see something that stopped the flow, so more changes were made. Then out came the camera again...and one more adjustment was made--and then it flowed for me. Good enough!!!

    I don't know, Chris, I may regret this. :lol:

    I love your quote about dancing in the rain! Also like the quilt inspector in your avatar pic! From the looks of your fabrics your project will be great! I'm sure someone here can help you along the way if you need it!

    Me too! I'd really like to hand the pile of fabrics over to a Bargello expert and let them do magic... I'm too tired. :lol:

    I made a bargello using similar colors and it was very pretty. I sent it to a good friend in Ohio or I'd snap a picture. You're gonna love your finished quilt.

    Thank you for reminding me to look thru the camera for interviewing colors...I keep forgetting this.
    The colors look great, Karla...you are being just like I was with Mom's jacket. I was afraid that certain colors were standing out too much.

    I love your fabric choices. I can't wait to see how this progresses. I have to go back and look to see which Bargello pattern you chose.
