    Paint by Number

    Allow me to present my latest finish, a multi-fabric batik bargello called "Paint by Number." The pattern is available at allpeoplequilt.com. The quilt turned out 95 x 48.5 and I used 30 different bargello fabrics.

    I suspect I made a mistake someone in the pattern -- I saw one in my favorite quilt shop and I don't remember it being so long and narrow. However, it JUST fits an empty space on my sewing room wall so I'm still a happy camper.

    Your quilt is beautiful! Did you use the tube piecing method that I've seen here and on you-tube? I've made only one bargello (my first quilt) and I'd like to make another but want to find the simplest method for doing so.

    That's really pretty. Colors are great. Looks like it could be a painting to hang on the wall.
