    This is my latest one, have the borders to do still. I think I will make a double border of the two main pinks and a teal. I wanted to use up some of my hand dyed fabric, most of the greens and teals are ones I have dyed. It will be about 75 x 95 when completed. My two pugs are on their quilt at the bottom of the one picture.

    This is beautiful and a great way of using twelve fabric. How many of the fabrics did you hand dye?
    I use this pattern in most of my bargello quilts. What is the smallest piece you have in it. I usually don't go below 1 in cut size. Anything smaller my old fingers can't handle them.

    I dyed all of the greens but one and also dyed the teals. I had quite a few half yard pieces of assorted prints so thought I would try dyeing them. It worked pretty good, made more of a tone on tone fabric. The smallest cut is 1 inch. I have tried 3/4 inch before but that is just too small for me. I graduated 1/2 inch larger for each cut until I reached 3 1/2 inches. My strips were cut 2 1/2 inches wide but I think I might go a little wider next time and maybe do halves instead of joining at the seams.Thanks for your compliments. Cuppi

    I forgot to mention that I love your quilts. You have a good eye for color and your quilts are soothing to look at.

    Love your quilt. One of these days I will get brave enough to try a bargello. Yours is beautiful.
