    All credits go to Danmar for designing and creating Swish. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-45289-1.htm
    I am making my Swish Bargello from her pattern. I want you to see it finished too but I just have to show you what this pattern is creating for me! I think I could name it the
    'Dizzy' Swish Bargello. It has ripples everywhere! The fabric is flat on the floor in each of these photos. I will show it again when I have it finished. /Thank you for looking.

    What a fantastic job you did. Can't believe the 'movement' factor. Looks like water waves.

    Thank-you. I started cutting my 2 1/2" strips July 17, 2010. I have logged my hours but I don't have my notes in here right now. It will take 27 hours to seam the total 54 rows that make the quilt. (I have about 18 to go before I am done). (((((I am not including my unsewing in the count!))))) :lol:
    I have worked 8, 10, & 12 hours a day on some days and skipped some days for life and family activities.
    It has been amazing, scary, exhilarating, mystifying, addictive, awesome, and so much more. I told myself I would never be able to make something as beautiful as the photos of Bargello's I have seen. Danmar's Swish pattern made it possible for me to do it. Now that I know where my colors will fall I can get some fancy fabric and do another one!!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh Dorothy! It is absolutely gorgeous! I love all the pictures! I am so happy that you were able to make it from my pattern. I had never made a Bargello pattern before. I can't wait to see it completed either! I'm so happy for you!

    When I got the pattern I scared myself to death. I said no way can I ever do this! I procrastinated for about 2 weeks, convincing myself it would be impossible for me to do. I couldn't stay away from it. I couldn't sleep at night for wanting to do it. Finally I took the pattern and said "Don't look beyond the first step, just do what it says before you look further".
    So I chose my fabrics. Looked further and cut my 2 1/2" strips. Put them on the design wall and rearranged them about 105 times. (I am not good with colors so I couldn't tell where my colors were going to fall in the quilt. I put the picture of Swish on my light box and traced a line around the sections. Then I knew where my colors were going to fall). I kept doing the pattern just one small section at a time and it worked well for me. Yes, a person needs to know the basics of quilting and have a sense of the theory of the Bargello. A beginner could make this quilt by taking just one step of the Swish pattern at a time, doing it and then going to the next step. It takes concentration and rechecking each step after you have done it.
    It is awesome!

    it's on my list..I got impatient waiting for her pattern (she was quick, but I was excited about the twisted bargellos and couldn't wait) so I started one on my own. Her Swish is still one of my favs and will be next in line. Yours is beautiful too - a good representation of her design!

    It's s obeautiful,, May I ask where may we find the pattern??? I have ben wanting to make a quilt like this. I made a weaver fever quilt a long time ago, but I have no idea where it is now. I wrecked the thing trying to machine quilt it. Grrr... At least I still have the pattern lying around here some where. Can't wait to see it completed. Huggies, Fay
